Oil-free Baked French Fries

I’ve gotten pretty good at revamping leftovers and this recipe was a reflection of this new talent. I had a few baked potatoes in my fridge that I had no idea what I wanted to do with. As I was scoping out my Instagram I saw a beautiful pic of some oil-free French fries. I’ve heard of this magic before but have never really experienced it for myself until this weekend.

Baking just about anything on parchment paper is really great because nothing sticks! It’s such a great secret ingredient to baking and roasting because you can skip a lot of unnecessary oil.

My dad bought me this really awesome set of flavored salts so I used the black truffle one in this recipe and it was unreal!! You could use any flavored salt you want or just plain sea salt. You could even do a mixture of smoked paprika, garlic powder, dry herbs, turmeric, and sea salt for a more seasoned french fry. Get creative, skip the oil!

I couldn’t believe how easy this was to make, how deliciously crispy they came out, and how quickly I devoured them right out of the baking tray. No regrets.

What you’ll need:

2 sweet potatoes

2 russet potatoes

Sea Salt

Parchment Paper


1. Bake your potatoes whole in the oven for about 45 minutes at 425 degrees until the insides are halfway cooked and the skins are a bit crispy. (Or microwave 5 minutes at a time until the insides are slightly soft)

2. Slice potatoes in half then into 1/2 inch thick strips. (The thinner you make them the crispier they will get)

3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Lay potatoes on parchment paper in a single layer. Sprinkle with your favorite salt. No oil. Just some salt.

4. Bake for about 30 minutes, removing every 10 minutes to flip around so all sides get crispy.

PRO-TIP: If you don’t want to bake the potatoes whole first you can simply peel the raw potatoes, cut into 1/3 inch strips, and follow steps 3 & 4. This method will take about 50 minutes total and you can remove once halfway to toss. 

Serve with a mixture of little mashed avocado, salt, & pepper (or just some ketchup) and enjoy it Veganly much!
