If you've always wanted to make homemade French fries but don't have a fryer or better yet want to skip the fried stuff, try this healthy recipe. These Organic Bistro Garlic Fries are as good as you'd find in any restaurant. Cook's tip: They must be served hot right out of the oven, don't let them sit.
4 medium russet potatoes, unpeeled
1/4-1/2 cup of olive oil
3-4 garlic cloves, smashed and minced
1/4 cup of fresh herbs like parsley and basil
Preheat oven to 425°. Line 2 sheet pans with tin foil, and place in preheated oven.
Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices, then cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-wide strips. Place in acidulated water (water with lemon) if potatoes start to turn brown. Drain and pat potatoes dry with a tea towel.
Combine potatoes and olive oil in large bowl and toss until completely coated. Remove heated pans from the oven and divide potatoes evenly between two baking sheets and spread in a single layer (potatoes will shrink so you can pack them tightly). Roast until potatoes are a deep golden brown about 40 minutes, turning frequently.
Transfer potatoes to a bowl and toss with fresh herbs, garlic and salt.
