Guilt Free Fries Recipe!

A ton of vegan bloggers have posted pictures of baked "fries." I'm pretty sure that Loni Jane and BonnyRebecca both have recipes in their ebooks, but for those of you that don't want to spend the money, I have a similar recipe for you here! These are oil free, low fat, and can be low sodium depending on the seasonings you use with them! 

So the video is a lot more in depth, but here's the general step by step. Adjust the cooking times and temps for your altitude and humidity, and don't be afraid to play around with this! 

1) Cut your potatoes (the smaller/thinner, the faster they'll cook)
2) Place "wet side up" and sprinkle seasoning on it (I love oregano and thyme, but chili or curry sounds pretty good too!) on a nonstick baking pan. If you want this to be no fat, don't grease the pan (they shouldn't stick anyway). 
note: I like to refrain from salting until the very end, right before consuming. If you salt now, it will dissolve and you'll probably end up using more than necessary. 
3) Bake in a 300°F oven for around 8-12 minutes (until they start visibly drying on the top). Keep in mind, depending on size this can take longer/shorter. 
4) Flip, season the other side, and place back in oven for another 8-12 minutes. 
5) Once it starts browning, turn the oven up to 400°F and flip the potatoes a final time. Keep your eye on it, it will start browning faster! This should take roughly 5 minutes. 

I am going to experiment with a battered fry recipe to see if I can get this even crunchier and better! Let me know in the comments if you'll try this out, give this video a thumbs up, and don't forget to subscribe! Also let me know what types of recipe vids you'd like to see in the future!
