These Healthy Baked Oven Fries are a healthy makeover of an all-time favorite side dish. They’re ready in 40 minutes, have only 3 ingredients, and are vegan!
- 3 medium Russet potatoes, about 1 ½ pound
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 3/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt (see ingredient note*)
- Put a kettle on to boil. Arrange oven rack in bottom most position of the oven and preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a large baking sheet with paper towels.
- Meanwhile, cut potatoes into batons/French fries, about 1/3 to ½-inch thick. Place in a large bowl.
- When water boils, pour over the potatoes and let sit 3 minutes. Drain thoroughly and spread over the towel-lined baking sheet. Blot with more towels. Dry the bowl and return the potatoes to it. Add oil and salt and toss until the potatoes are completely coated.
- Discard paper towels and dry the baking sheet if necessary. Coat the baking sheet with cooking spray. Spread the potatoes out in an even layer on the baking sheet.
- Bake on the bottom rack until golden on the bottom, 12 to 15 minutes. Turn over with a spatula and continue baking until golden and cooked through, 15 to 18 minutes longer, stirring one more time.
