Don't buy frozen fries, make them fresh, and use orange sweet potatoes to get more antioxidants, potassium, and fibre, from a fat-free, low-glycemic index super-food!
Peel the potatoes, cut into sticks, spread on your baking sheet, sprinkle with seasonings, bake, enjoy.
See full instructions and pictures here!
Preheat oven to 425° F. Use a foil or silicone lined baking sheet or stoneware. No-oil required.
Peel the potatoes.
Cut in half or quarters, place on the round side, slice down 2-3 times to make 1 inch lengths. Set in a pile on the flat side, cut into sticks.
Spread mostly in a single layer, some overlap is fine. No-oil required. Really jam the sticks together, they will shrink quite a bit. Pack as many on the sheet as you can, because I think you are going to eat these up really quick-like and be sad if you don't have enough. In fact, I wish I had put a lot more on my sheet here. :(
Sprinkle with seasonings like seasoned salt, chili powder, or cajun seasoning from Epicure. If you have a convection oven, then fire up two sheets and cook those babies at the same time.
Bake for 30 - 40 minutes. Remove if fries start to burn.
Serve! In this case we had them with beet greens (with fresh squeezed lemon) and vegan chicken fingers. It was honestly a great combo. Spicy cajun fries, salty lemon beet greens (they are naturally salty), sweet ketchup veggie fingers - it was all really good, and pretty good for us too, right?
With Ketchup mixed with cajun seasoning, or cranberry sauce, or lemon juice.
