July is National French Fry Month. So, I love anything that can be turned into a French Fry. So, of course, that is why I have my own favourite recipe. Besides the fact that I love to cook, I feel like it’s important to figure out how to make your own version of the unhealthy food. How do you make junk food healthy?
I always start with a potato. When making this blog post I had both russet potatoes (which I use the most often) and sweet potatoes. I make sure they are rinsed and take off any of the gross stuff I don’t want to be eating.
I think this part is optional and up to you on how you cute the potatoes. I like to make chips but if you’re really talented and have the time you can make them fry shape. I just find chips go way easier. You just cut the potato vertically.
Once all the potatoes are cut I put them on an aluminum foil covered pan. I use aluminum foil because it’s easier to clean up. I am straight up the laziest person and if it means there’s less for me to clean, I do it.
I drizzle a bit of olive oil over the potatoes chips so that the seasoning will stick. Today I decided to add onion powder and red pepper flakes. Red pepper flakes are spicy so if you’re not in the mood for spice you can always just use your own seasonings.
I stick these bad boys in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. I check up on them at 20 to see how they’re looking and I either take them out or put them in longer depending on how they look. I look for them to be crispy.
I let them sit for about 5 minutes then I serve. I typically eat them with vegan sour cream and chives just for extra flavour.
I hope you guys have a great national french fry month. Do you guys have your own french fry recipe or do you just buy them premade? If you try out this recipe make sure to tell me about it!
