These baked potato french fries are a healthier version of your favorite side.  Vegan and glutenfree Jump to Recipe   

Right in time for Friday! Lots of baked tato options! To serve as a side with your veggie burgers or eat the whole plate as is. Its potatoes.. they are baked, they are good for you;) well atleast gooder than fried ones.

Chewie’s birthday is coming up! He is our adopted baby, who went from shelter to rescue to adoptive home, then back to rescue then came to our home and marked the entire place (dog owners will know what I mean;)..What do you think I should do to celebrate.. a birthday cause or sell some cafepress tees with Chewie on them 🙂 . He plays with only some dogs, is civil to most. On the other hand, he loves all humans, loves to meet everyone and loves to get petted. the only humans he will growl at are a few really huge ones with hoodies or gadgets(I have no clue why).

These fries are inspired by Cadry’s French Fries are her secret. It feels like a potato kind of week right. Fries after the Samosa French Toasts. You can find more Savory Snack options here.
The pictured fries are Cilantro, garlic, black salt, black pepper, chili powder.

Its potato wedges! You can do any number of variations..
other Variations :
1. Garam masala or Chaat masala fries.. You cant beat some chili powder and garam masala on crisp potatoes.
2. Thyme and parsley. Some fresh thyme and parley from out garden, liberally added to the potatoes before baking and then also used to garnish when baked. perfection!
4. Green chili, asafoetida, turmeric and curry leaves. Its Tadka fries!, my current favorite.  Make the tempering with 2 tsp of oil, 1-2 green chilies finely chopped. a generous pinch of asafoetida(hing), turmeric and roughly chopped curry leaves. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the chili is crisp. Add to freshly baked wedges. Serve hot!
These spicy disappearing wedges are being shared at Ricki’s wellness weekend, Ella’s potluck, Amees Fit and fab Friday.

    These really satisfied an intense fry craving! I have always parboiled potatoes first but it’s good to know this short-cut method works well too (and I believe you don’t need as much oil this way). Can’t wait to try a chaat masala variation!
