No Oil Baked Fries

Yield: 3-4 Servings

These perfectly crisp baked french fries are the perfect side for veggie burgers and carrot dogs. By boiling the potatoes for a few minutes before baking, you reduce some of the starch and provide enough moisture to yield crispy fries that are completely oil free.


  • 4 medium-large Yukon gold potatoes
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut the potatoes in wedges or regular French fry shape about ½ to ¾ inch thick.
  3. Place the potatoes in a deep saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil.
  4. Boil for 5 minutes.
  5. Drain well and place in a mixing bowl.
  6. Add the seasonings and toss the potatoes so they are evenly coated.
  7. Place in a baking dish lined with a silicone liner or parchment paper. Avoid stacking them so they cook evenly.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until crisp. Enjoy!


  • These make delicious “home-fries” as well! Just cut them in cubes instead of wedges.
  • Try adding different seasongs such as curry powder or smoked paprika
