The healthieast and tastiest french fries ever - the oven way!

There's nothing quite like the taste of deep fried french fries but as you must know, fried foods are quite unhealthy for everyone, not just those trying to loose weight.
I would like to share with you some tips on making the most delicious and healthiest french fries. Not by frying them but boiling and baking them.

1. First of all cut your potatoes into strips trying to maintain a uniform thickness (not too thin and not to thick). The quantity is up to you.
2. Boil them for 5 minutes in water just so that they moisten a bit (not too much).
3. In the meantime take an oven tray or casserole dish big enough to spread them out evenly, spread some oil in it so that the bottom is all covered and place in the oven on medium temperature. This way the oil will be heated when its time to throw in the potatoes.
4. When the 5 minutes of boiling are up drain the potatoes and sprinkle with salt. Any other herb of your choice like paprika oregano or cumin would also be fine. Toss to evenly coat.
5. Place potatoes in tray and mix to distribute oil evenly.
6. Bake on high temperature for at least half an hour or until crispy with a slight brownish color.
Let them cool a bit and watch them disappear! They are tastier to eat while they are still warm so dont let them cool out too much.

You will be amazed. They turn out to be so crisp on the outside and so moist on the inside. And also they are so much healthier than fried potatoes! Children just love them.
Bon appetite!
