Delicious Oil-free Baked Potato Fries – 10mins Prep
But let’s be honest; what’s not to love about Potato Fries? Not only are they oh-so-delicious, potatoes are actually pretty nutrient-dense. However, they are often drowned in tons of oil and even contain preservatives and additives. Our friend Cherie from @thrivingonplants has found the perfect way to make oil free fries using an air-fryer or oven!
SERVES: 1-2 PREP: 10 MINS COOK: 45 MINS
Crispy on the outside & soft on the inside, these oil-free baked potato fries are bound to be one of your weekly staples. Enjoy with salad and a generous spoon of guac for a satisfying meal!
- 1 medium sweet potato
- 1 large Russet potatoes
- 2-3 tsp your favourite herbs & spices (Eg. mixed herbs, smoked paprika, onion powder and garlic powder) *
- Salt & pepper to taste
- To serve: Handful of rocket/arugula, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, cucumber & smashed avo + lime
- To begin with, wash, peel your potatoes (you can leave the skins on if you prefer but I like to peel them, this is just personal preference so I’ll leave this up to you!) then thoroughly dry them using a paper towel or clean tea towel.
- Slice into your desired shape (wedges, shoestring…), I always go for a normal thick cut.
- Sprinkle on your choice of herbs and spices (+ salt and pepper if using) and evenly coat potatoes.
- If using an air fryer, all you have to do is toss the potatoes into the basket, turn on and ‘bake’ at 200°C for 45 minutes or until golden on the outside and soft on the inside. I usually give the basket a bit of a toss at the 20-25 minute mark for even cooking. If using an oven, preheat at 200°C, line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper and evenly spread your fries on, ensuring that they don’t overlap or touch. At the 20-25 minute mark, give your fries a flip and cook for an additional 20 minutes until golden and cooked through.
- Serve immediately with a side salad & guacamole! Enjoy.
* spices do a great job in coating the fries so try experimenting with smoked paprika or even a dash of curry powder! The flavour combinations are endless which makes this recipe an even better staple to make.
It is as simple as that & trust us, they taste delicious!! They are simple & perfect after a long Winter’s day – wrap yourself up in your Bamboo Quilt, pop on a movie & enjoy!
