Potatoes have earned a bad rap, but they are truly a perfect food. High in fiber and low in fat, potatoes are ideal for erasing diabetes and for reaching or maintaining your goal weight. This recipe delivers delicious crispy fries without oil or salt. You can use any kind of potato, but I find that Yukon gold work best. I've included my favorite blend of spices, but you can use any that you like. Using parchment paper to line the baking sheet eliminates the need for oil and makes the potatoes crispy.
12-15 small, Yukon gold potatoes (leave skins on for extra fiber and nutrients), washed and quartered length wise, about ¾ inches thick
1 Tbsp parsley, chopped fine
1 Tbsp whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp onion powder
½ Tbsp paprika
pepper to taste
Bring a pot of water to boiling and boil potatoes for 8-10 minutes until potatoes are almost tender.
While potatoes are boiling, preheat oven to 425 degrees F. and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
After boiling, drain potatoes and place back into pot. Add all seasonings to the pot, cover, and shake. It’s good if potatoes get banged up a bit. It’s these edges that get crispy with baking. Spread evenly on cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges turn deep brown.
