The Best Oven Baked Fries

It’s been awhile since I posted a savoury recipe! Probably because it’s been awhile since I have eaten a lot of cooked foods. Now that I am incorporating more cooked foods into my diet I figured this was the perfect opportunity to post one of the favourite recipes!

Well, I guess this recipe doesn’t particularly classify as savoury…but in my books it does!

I don’t even think I would call this a recipe though. It’s too simple.

Nonetheless, these fries are still scrumptious and you would never know that these are just potatoes. No oil, no salt, nothin’. They are golden perfection.

Most people often believe that vegan diets are “restrictive” and “extreme”. One of my main goals with this blog is to put that rumour to rest!

French fries…milkshakes…cookie dough…

It’s all about taking the foods you love and putting a healthy spin on it. No restriction or “cheat days” necessary on this lifestyle!

Recipe:

-As many potatoes as you desire!

-Optional: Herbs such as rosemary, thyme or oregano. You could also add black pepper with lemon to replace the lack of salt.

Method:

Start by washing your potatoes. Preheat your oven to 380 degrees.

Step 1. Since potatoes are obviously round take your knife and cut off one of the sides. Lay the potato flat on the side you cut so it won’t roll around anywhere.

Step 2. Starting on the right or left depending on which hand the knife is in cut in 1/2 inch segments until you reach the opposite side.

Step 3. Now you should have a bunch of potato ovals. If you want thicker fries cut into thirds. If you want traditional thin fries cut into fourths.

step3Step 4. Lay your fries on parchment paper and if you are adding seasoning, sprinkle it over the fries.

Step 5. The key to perfect golden fries is the time and temperature. I usually bake mine at 380 degrees F on the convection setting, so that is about 405 degrees. I cook them for around 30 minutes. I don’t set a timer I just keep an eye on them. It get’s tricky because many variables come into play. If your fries are thinner it will take less time and vice versa. I suggest you set your oven anywhere from 350-400 degrees (because all ovens are different) and just watch them, you’ll know when they’re ready. They should be golden on the outside, the ends crisp and the insides soft!

Have a fruitful, or root-ful 😉 day,
