Baked Fries

Good Morning all.  One of our goals is to eat healthier and you might think,  ‘How much healthier can you get than being vegan?’ Well, you can over do the olive oil and technically, you can fry with vegetable shortening, even though shortening has a few multi-syllable ingredients in it, but we try to avoid using these too often. 

Since we both love French fries, I decided to see how good baked fries would be.  Now, we treat ourselves to these potatoes a couple of times a month.  We share them with people who stop by to visit whenever I make them, and they love them. 

Baked Fries

8 potatoes, cut into fry wedges                         1 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp black pepper                                              1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp garlic powder                                                  1 tsp onion powder

ground red pepper, to taste (optional)           olive oil

Preheat oven to 400′.  In a medium plastic bag, put all spices in.  Shake to mix;  add potato wedges and shake to coat.  I use the bottom of a broiler pan, cover it with foil and apply a thin layer of olive oil.  Put the wedges on the foil and spread evenly.  Place in oven and bake for 45 min to an hour or until golden and crispy. 

If children are here for dinner, I go light on the spices, otherwise for us, the hotter the better.

Have a great weekend!
