Homemade Fries

Ask the Chef: How do I make homemade fries?


Dear chef, I’ve been trying to be more health-conscious in the kitchen and have been trying to make fries in the oven but keep failing miserably. What can I do?


“Try yucca fries for a healthy and delicious alternative. They do a lot better in the oven than regular fries because you can achieve great crispiness without making them overdone. Simply cut your fries from the yucca and rinse under water to wash the starch off. Blanch in boiling water for 90 seconds, submerge in an ice bath to stop the cooking process, and strain. Lightly spray avocado oil over the fries, and season lightly with salt, pepper, garlic powder and fresh herbs. Bake for 16-18 minutes at 425 degrees.”
