Spice in the Kitchen: Spicy Sriracha Baked French Fries

Making French fries (maybe these are technically home fries?) at home is so ridiculously easy that you'll never buy bagged ones again! Ok, maybe you will, but seriously, these are super simple to make!


(Spicy Sriracha) Baked French Fries Recipe (vegan)
serves 2-?

Ingredients
  • 1 potato/person (Use yukon gold or white, the kind with the thin skin.)
  • spray oil or olive or peanut oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Sriracha hot sauce (optional--if you want just regular fries, leave this step out)

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Wash and scrub potatoes (I use organic, specially since you most likely will be eating a touch of dirt when you leave the skins on. Who wants to eat dirt sprayed with fertilizer and pesticides?)
  3. Cut potatoes in wedges. You can do this long or short; just make sure all potatoes are about the same thickness so they cook easily; about 3/4".
  4. In a large bowl, spray potatoes with oil so they are throughly coated. If using oil, you'll need approximately 1/2 TB/potato.
  5. Season with salt and pepper. Don't go crazy with the salt--if there is not enough, you can always salt again when the fries are done.
  6. Now, if you want spicy fries, squirt about 1/4 tsp/potato of the Sriracha over the potatoes. Mix really well.
  7. Lay the potato wedges in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Lightly spray the tops of the wedges with oil.
  8. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are golden with brown spots and a fork easily pierces them.
