the kids said no to fries and yes to homemade baked potatoes. they flavoured their potatoes to their liking and baked it with a nutshell of butter.
they paired their 'fries' with freshly made tomato sauces. continuing from yesterday's no-sugar class, they roasted their tomatoes and added some roasted carrots for the extra sweetness!
it's wonderful to see the kids really getting into the no junk zone.
Double tap if you love fries 🍟 i’m often asked how i make my fries because they always come out super crispy and delicious looking ☺️
it’s actually super easy, here is the how to👇🏻
1️⃣peel and chop potatoes into fries
2️⃣drizzle potatoes with @chosenfoods avocado oil 🔥 i really like using this oil because the smoke point is sooo high (500f peeps!) making it ideal for making fries 3️⃣next i spice my fries with pink salt, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika
4️⃣i spread the fries on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (it doesn’t have to be perfect, my fries are usually on top of each other)
5️⃣i heat up the oven to 400f and bake the fries until the bottoms become crispy (35 minutes, depending on thickness)
6️⃣once your bottoms are golden i like to switch my oven to broil and crisp the fries from the top. it doesn’t take very long so watch them like a hawk. within minutes your fries start looking golden and delicious
🥔do give this method a try, i’m telling ya it works! there is no need to toss, flip or turn! you just let the oven do its thing.
