      Who needs French fries when you've got Italian fries? A twist on a recipe created by Lucinda's Italian relatives, these oven-baked fries are tossed in olive oil, grated cheese, and a medley of dried herbs. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper while they're still hot, and serve immediately. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    Beet and Cucumber rolls Ingredients: (to make filling) Beetroot - 2 small Red Onion - 1/2 chopped finely Lime juice - 1 tbsp Cilantro /Parsley - few strands chopped Garlic & Parsley powder - 1/2 tsp Cumin powder-1/2 tsp (optional) Salt and pepper to taste Cream cheese - 1 tbsp (crumbled feta cheese also works) Method: Cut beetroot into thin strips or grate or chop coarsely and cook until tender adding half glass water.Make sure all the water dries up and switch off flame and let it cool down. Meanwhile add lime juice to chopped onion and let it marinate and become tender and pink. Mix the onion with cilantro garlic&parsley powder ,cumin powder,cream cheese salt and pepper. To make rolls: Cucumber- 1 (Persian with more seeds the better) I have used the regular ones.I got 12 slices with seeds seen in the middle. I patted dry the remaining end pieces thoroughly with a paper napkin, chopped it finely and added to the filling. Cream cheese -1 tbsp Wash and cut off the ends of the cucumber. Slice the cucumber in a mandolin/ veg peeler (or if small cucumber is used then a potato peeler should work) into thin long strips. Pat the strips dry with a paper towel and put 3/4 th tsp of filling on each strip and little bit cream cheese on the end of it . Roll the cucumber and press gently so the cream cheese glues the end and lay the roll flat. If you plan to keep the roll upright then use a toothpick at the seam to secure it well.(I have not used here) Note: If u like roasted beet feel free to use that instead cooking on stove top. Do not roll too tightly as the filling will squeeze out.
