Need a last minute side dish for dinner tonight?

I thought so.

My vegetable fries may be just what’s missin’ on your plate.

I mean, let’s get serious…

We all love fries.

And who doesn’t love baked fries?

Greasy fried fries are so 80’s.

And we’re so way beyond that.

Aren’t we?

Come on now.

This recipe is as easy as 1, 2, 3 so no excuses for pulling up to that drive-thru window. Get your oven on and get busy, people.

Hehe.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  2. HI AMIE,

    I MADE THESE FRIES FOR MY DINNER GUESTS ON SUNDAY AND THEY LOVED THEM I SERVED WITH SOME HOMEMADE SALSA. THIS WAS THE BEST PART OF MY DINNER. THEY WERE VERY EASY TO MAKE AND THE PRESENTATION LOOKED SO NICE ON THE PLATE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT IDEAS. HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!

    1. Thank you so much Alaine; so nice to hear from you! I hope you like ’em…they’re so fun to make and munch on. Have a great night darling!

  3. Do these fries get crispy or do they stay soft? I’d love to make them I just want to make sure I’m prepared for the final result ( and don’t think its an error on my part hahah)

    1. Thanks Kayla! These fries are quite soft but you can cut down on the liquid and increase cooking time for crispy fries! Enjoy darling… xxoo
