It isn’t all about food. What we wear can be as near and dear to our hearts as what we eat. If you need proof go see Love, Loss and What I Wore at the Centaur Theatre tonight or tomorrow night, You’ll be entertained and charmed by the vignettes that tell women’s stories through their clothing. The opening night was a sold-out show for Gloria’s Girls, the Gloria Shapiro Endowment Fund for Ovarian Cancer Research at the Jewish General Hospital.
After you’ve called for tickets, you can whip up a batch of these Veggie Fries. Just do it!
- 2 rutabagas, peeled and sliced into long narrow sticks
- 2 T olive oil
- 1 t sea salt
- 1 T sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 400F.
On one or two baking sheets, spread fries out in a single layer. In a small dish, mix the oil and salt. Brush a little oil mixture on the fries. Roast fries for 30 minutes, turning at half time, adding a little oil. Continue roasting for another 20 minutes, flipping fries, removing any small fries as they brown and adding a little oil at a time.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving. Tasty hot or cold. Serves 4-6.
