Surprise Veggie Fries Recipe


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
  • 2 shakes of EasyPeasie Natural Blend (adjust to taste)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat the Oven: While the potatoes are soaking, preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  4. Drain and Dry: After soaking, drain the potatoes and lay them out on a kitchen towel or paper towels. Pat them dry thoroughly.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
