Crispy Baked French Fries…UM YES PLEASE!
French fries are typically deep fried in vegetable oil and are harmful to your health. With my new recipe for crispy baked french fries, you can eat fries without the guilt! These are totally oil-free, vegan, and baked to a crisp perfection. You will be hooked on these.
I am SO thankful that I have officially mastered the culinary art of oil-free fries. Now I get to share this amazing recipe with all of you.
This recipe is:
Here is part of my secret…soak the fries in ice cold water for 10 minutes prior to baking. While the oven preheats just throw the cut up potatoes in ice cold water and this makes such a difference! SCORE!
Crispy Baked French Fries: aka best fries ever!
Make sure your fries are not overcrowding on the baking sheet, leave a little room – this allows for extra crispiness!
I dipped my fries in Organicville ketchup – it is sweetened with agave which is definitely better than buying ketchup sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. However, you can dip your fries in whatever sauce you like – or have them plain as they’re great on their own.
My boyfriend gobbled these up, I had to tell him to slow down to make sure I got some too. We barely even made it through this photoshoot because we were eating the fries as we took pictures (lol!).
What could be better than a pile of fries?! Tell me in the comments what your fave kind of fries are..thick? skinny? with skin? without? I want to know! Also, quick note..if you ever have any recipe requests, I am open to suggestions.
Mention your requests in the comments.
Parchment paper is your best friend when it comes to oil-free baking.
Use parchment to avoid greasing a baking sheet. Isn’t this such a neat trick?!
Why oil-free? Oil is highly refined and is very high in fat.
You are better off eating a whole fat source instead of a refined fat source. Aka eat the olive not olive oil, eat sesame seeds instead of sesame oil, etc. Make sense?
Are you drooling yet?
