Who doesn’t like french fries, right?! But they are full of fat and sodium when they’re fried in all that oil. That’s why I came up with this healthy version, I think they taste even better. (Sorry Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta, no Grease here). Are they still called fries if they are not fried…hmmm. Anyway, I know you will enjoy these French fries (or baked potato strips, or whatever you want to call them 😉 ).
2 Large Potatoes
3 Tbs of Canola Oil (or Olive Oil)
1 Tbs Salt
1 Tbs Pepper
Preheat the oven to 425°. First cut the potatoes lengthwise into strips. In the meantime bring a big pot of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, carefully place in the potato strips. Boil for 5 minutes, then stain them.
In a large bowl, combine the canola oil along with salt and pepper. This is the best part, you can add in whatever seasoning you like. Maybe some garlic powder, or chipotle pepper, or even red pepper flakes or fresh herbs. Whatever you want, you are the master of your kitchen (that’s right…makes you feel empowered doesn’t it…oh yeah!) Toss the potatoes in the mixture and place on a foil lined baking sheet in one even layer. Cook for 30 minutes, flip halfway through.
Let cool for 5 minutes, and there you go, delicious and crispy fries. Much healthier than fast food, and definitely one of my favs! Enjoy!
