Homemade french fries amp spinach for lunch!

4 years ago

As I mentioned on an earlier post I`ve made a drastic change in my diet; No more fried, processed, or unhealthy foods! So far I`ve currently lost 50 lb`s with diet and exercise and I hope to continue on from here.

One of the hardest things to let go from my previous diet was french fries, I lived for them! I tried looking up recipes online for different `healthy` recipes for french fries but they all required some type of oil & in my opinion if your trying to eat healthy, why spoil it with oil? Olive or not...

After several attempts to create my own french fries I finally succeed. Here`s my recipe;

What you need;
3-5 ounce potato (I used an organic russet)
Red pepper flakes or other spices (Completely optional)

Cover a medium sized baking sheet in foil and pre-heat the over to 350`F.

Thinly slice a potato of your choice until you get about 30 3 inch strips (As I`m not very good with words you can use my picture as a visual to help guide your slices).

Using a few paper towels dry off extra liquid from potatoes and place in Ziploc baggy. Add spices of your choice and shake until all slices are coated.

Place potato slices on baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip & proceed to bake for another 15 minutes.

You can either eat them alone or along side another dish. I choose to use 2 cups of steamed spinach. Regardless, Enjoy!

Tip; The thickness of your slices will affect the crunchiness of the fries. If you prefer your fries extra crunchy you could bake them for a few minutes longer. I`d be sure to check them after 15 minutes though.

If you decide to take the leap and try these leave a comment and let me know what you thought, I`d love the hear! :)
