Sea Salt and Rosemary French Fries

I grew up in a small country town in West Virginia. We had to drive a good way to get an order of fries, so the only time I got to feast on a carton of salty,  oily fries was when we traveled for vacation.

The day came when I move to the “big city” I mean…..fast food everywhere! Though I ate pretty healthy, I had my fair share.

Throughout the years we eliminated more and more bad food for our diet, and the time came when I had to wean my kids from fast food fries.  Did they eat them all the time, no, but I wanted to erase them from their memory.

I made fries for the first time and they were an instant hit! Who wouldn’t like crispy fries with the touch of sea salt and a hint of rosemary?

I think we discount the  potato from the healthy list, but they are rich in vitamins, help prevent kidney stones, high in fiber, and reduce inflammation to name a few! Be sure to buy organic potatoes because pesticides in the soil absorb into the flesh making it hard to wash off. It’s worth the little extra money for a good potato, and worth a little of your time to make these!

Sea Salt and Rosemary French Fries

  • 3 large potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or refined coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary or dried
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Wash the potatoes and cut in half lengthwise. Then cut each half in slices lengthwise, then into slices to resemble French fries.
  • Spread fries over lined cookie sheet.
  • In a small bowl mix olive oil and spices. Mix well and pour evenly over fries. Toss so they are evenly coated.
  • Bake at 400 for about 20 min or until lightly browned
