First, here's your quick and "easy peasy" recipe...
If they only want fries today, that's ok! Mix the mild-flavored EasyPeasie Natural Blend into their ketchup, or sprinkle it right onto their fries to add some easy peasie veggie nutrition!
And here's your detailed recipe...
- 4 large russet potatoes
- 4 cups cold water (for soaking)
- Salt, to taste
- 2 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1-2 shakes of EasyPeasie Natural Blend (adjust to taste)
- Prep the Potatoes: Wash and peel the russet potatoes. Cut them into even-sized sticks, about 1/4-inch wide and 3-4 inches long.
- Soak the Potatoes: Place the cut potatoes in a bowl and cover with cold water. Allow them to soak for at least 30 minutes to an hour. This step helps remove excess starch, resulting in crispier fries.
- Preheat the Oven: While the potatoes are soaking, preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Drain and Dry: After soaking, drain the potatoes and lay them out on a kitchen towel or paper towels. Pat them dry thoroughly.
- Season the Potatoes: In a large mixing bowl, toss the dried potato sticks with olive or avocado oil, ensuring they are well-coated. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
- Arrange on a Baking Sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Spread the potato sticks out in a single layer, ensuring they aren't overlapping.
- Bake: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping the fries halfway through, until they are golden brown and crispy.
- Prepare the Veggie-Boosted Ketchup: In a small bowl, mix the ketchup with a teaspoon or two of EasyPeasie Natural Blend. Stir well until the blend is fully incorporated into the ketchup.
- Serve: Once baked, remove the fries from the oven and let them cool slightly. Serve with the veggie-boosted ketchup on the side for dipping. For even more veggie-boosting, sprinkle a little Natural Blend on the fries too!
Note: Oven-baking offers a healthier alternative to frying, and the addition of EasyPeasie Natural Blend in the ketchup ensures a nutritious twist to this beloved snack. Enjoy the crispy, golden fries with the enhanced flavor and nutrition of the ketchup!
