Crispy Oven Fries (or Vegetables!)

Sometimes I share recipes over on Instagram…I figured what the heck, I might as well pop them up here too! I get a lot of requests for these  Crispy Oven Fries so here’s the recipe.

Oven fries are a favourite here! We eat them a couple times a week and still, the family gets excited every time! This method works for a variety of vegetables. Try it with potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, beets, carrots, cabbage, or zucchini.

Choose between lard, olive oil, coconut oil or other high heat oil of choice. Remember healthy fats are good for you! Don’t be scared of them! Your brain needs fat to function! You can go up to ⅓ cup of fat/oil for even crispier oven fried here…

Season your oven fries with herbs such as dill, oregano and thyme being favourite herbs. Cumin, coriander and paprika are favourite spices!
