The oven fries or wedges are generously seasoned.  Just use salt, pepper, and your favorite seasonings; or keep a pre mixed seasoning salt in your pantry for easy flavorful meals.   Typically, we make these using lard, tallow, or avocado oil.  They are all easy options for healthy fats and 1000% better than the canola oil fried ones we can find in restaurants.

 

Of course, dietary restrictions and preference play a major role.  For vegan use avocado oil.  Stay away from coconut oil.  Coconut oil is a healthy fat and great choice for most meals.  Its easy to find and perfect for vegan diets.  However, in fries it does have a distinct taste and the smoke point is not very high (350F).  For this reason, avocado oil is a better option.  Use avocado oil for frying or cooking at high heat to replace “regular” oils.  See our easy overview on healthy and unhealthy fats here. 

Crispy Potato Wedges

For extra crispy baked potato wedges soak the potatoes for about 7-10 minutes before cooking.  Pat the potatoes dry and season then bake. If you’re short on time, cooking on a rack also helps the fries to crisp faster.  Make sure to give the potatoes space to “breathe”, not spacing potatoes out can cause them to be less crunchy and more soft.

If you’re following the GAPS diet look away.  Potatoes are one of the hardest things to let go of for some people.  Luckily, you can just substitute potato with another starch free healthy carbohydrate for most recipes for the GAPS diet.

Here are a few options: 

  • caulimash
  • carrot fries
  • butternut squash 
  • cauliflower tater tots
Potatoes are a starchy vegetable.  Therefore, not GAPS/SCD compliant.
