I go Vegetarian for a week starting tomorrow!!!! Details here.
I like french fries a lot. I am doing fantastic with my no sugar goal, I hope next year to make a no fried foods goal which will be trillions times more difficult however, its nice to know you can indulge in french fries occasionally by making them from home
As you can see, our fries contain around half the calories of typical fries and also much less fat. And unlike fast food fries, which are cooked with either unhealthy partially-hydrogenated fat or beef fat, these fries are cooked with heart-healthy canola oil.
Here's how to make these fries at home. This recipe makes two serves:
Peel the potato and square off the edges
Peel two good sized potatoes (floury potatoes like Russet, spunta or sebago are best) and slice off the sides and ends of each to form a rectangular shape.
Slice the potato lengthwise
Slice each potato lengthwise into approximately 1cm (½-inch) slices.
Stack and slice into sticks
Stack the slices on top of each other and cut into 1cm (½-inch) sticks.
Toss in canola oil
Pat the sliced potato dry with paper towels and put in a bowl with 1½ tablespoons of canola oil. Toss gently with your hands to coat.
Cook in oven
Preheat the oven to 250°C/480°F. Place the fries on a baking tray in a single layer (not touching each other) and bake for 35 minutes in the center of the oven.
Sprinkle with salt and serve
Sprinkle with a little salt and serve immediately.
