A couple of weeks ago I tried a recipe for baked fries that I found on the Talking Kitchen.
Now this recipe calls for fresh cilantro and I've found there are two opinions with regard to cilantro, you either really like it or you really hate it!
Our family happens to really like it, so this recipe is a keeper as is.
But if you do not like cilantro, you could replace the cilantro with other fresh herbs, rosemary,parsley,chives to name a few.
Here's the recipe:
Ingredients (2-3 servings)
5-6 yukon gold potatoes, cut into thin fries
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 – 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 – 3/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 c. loosely packed cilantro leaves, finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, and get a baking sheet with rack ready (if no rack, just line with foil/parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil. Cut the potatoes into fries and place in a bowl of cold water to soak for a few minutes.
Drain the water and dry the fries with paper towel. Once dry, toss the fries with the olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Lay on a baking sheet in a single layer, preferably one that has a cooking rack so the fries can have the air circulating all around them (and no need to flip.) Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on your oven and how crispy you like your fries. If using a baking sheet without a rack, halfway through the cooking time, flip the fries.
Once done, toss fries with cilantro in a bowl.
