French Fries Oven Baked with Rosemary & Garlic

These french fries are baked not fried, which makes them low-fat, low-salt, and 100% delicious. Finally, fries you can feel good about eating, guilt-free.

Fun Fact: It turns out French fries may not be French. The origins of the French fry can actually be traced back to villagers living along the Meuse river in Belgium. In the winter the river would freeze over, making fishing impossible so instead the villager's fried potatoes.

Since then French fries have grown to be one of the most popular side dishes around the world. Although, every country seems to have its own unique dipping preferences.

  • Americans prefer ketchup
  • French prefer mustard
  • British prefer vinegar
  • Japanese prefer soy sauce or green curry
  • Belgium prefer mayonnaise
  • Canada prefers poutines

The Potatoes

Start by cutting the russet potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick strips, then place in a large bowl. Alternatively, you can use a French fry cutter, which can speed this process up.

Potatoes Cut into Thick Fries

Next, cover the newly cut fries with some cold water and let soak for 30 minutes to an hour.

Why soak the potatoes in cold water you may ask.

Well, soaking the potatoes in water helps get rid of the excess starch, which prevents the fries from sticking together. Also, by using cold water, your French fries will reach that maximum crispiness.

Spice the Fries

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Drain the water, then toss the potatoes with the vegan butter, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and rosemary.

Leave everything to marinate for about 5-10 minutes, then let's move on to our final steps.

Then, bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until fries are browned and crispy. Make sure to turn the potatoes once, about halfway through.
