French fries are not exactly the healthiest thing you could eat. In case you did not know, they were invented in Belgium. Want more trivia? McDonald’s fries are not vegetarian. Nope. They are not.
Oven fries taste just as good and, because they are baked, they will not load you with fat your body cannot process.
Besides, oven fries are very quickly washed, cut up, and tossed with oil and condiments, while the oven is pre-heating. It is an easy food to make and a healthy side dish to any entree.
6 medium potatoes
3 Tbsp olive oil (more if desired)
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp parsley flakes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt to taste
Pre-heat the oven to 375F. Scrub potatoes and remove any dark brown spots. Do not peel the potatoes. The skin gives them a nice texture and it keeps the nutrients in.
Cut each potato lengthwise into 16 or more pieces. Put them in a medium size bowl. In a small cup, mix the oil with the condiments. Pour the mixture over the potatoes and toss them with a spatula until they are thoroughly coated.
Spread them on a baking sheet in one layer. Bake at 375 F for 35-45 minutes, depending on your oven. Enjoy with veggie burgers or any other entree of your choice.
