A healthy spin on American favorite guilty treat. Now eating french fries can be something you feel good about.
Ingredients
  • 3 lbs of Russet potatoes
  • ½+ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp favorite seasoning (I like using Kirkland Organic; Mrs. Dash is another option, or fresh herbs, such as dill, parsley, cilantro, etc.)
  • 2 tbsp chopped dill (optional)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (optional)
Instructions
  1. preheat oven to 450 F
  2. wash your spuds thoroughly, keeping skins on for more nutrition
  3. slice each, lengthwise into ¼-3/8 planks, as shown in image in the post
  4. slice each plank into ¼ to ⅜-inch batons

  6. place cut batons into a mixing bowl, add salt and spices and toss
  7. if you want crispier fries, you can add a little bit of olive oil to toss, but it is good to skip this to shave off unwanted calories, and to keep your arteries healthier
  8. line two large baking sheets with parchment paper (most of oil will absorb into it)
  9. lay out batons on baking sheets and place into the oven
  10. bake 15-20 mins, until fries begin to brown on the bottoms, then flip over with a spatula and bake another 5+ minutes, or until you achieve that perfect golden-crunchy-munch-inducing perfection
Notes
I do not discard any piece of potato--smaller pieces make for crunchier fries; I also do not soak or peel my potatoes
