I’m going to show you the picture first. They taste as good, if not better than they look.
You may be wondering…Why not just call them french fries?
- Fries is a misnomer, because they’re baked
- This is Jack’s special recipe, and he calls them chips or chippies (he’s Australian). It’s his very own super delicious recipe, so he gets to decide what they’re called. I don’t really care what they’re called. I just want to eat them.
You can probably tell from the picture that the fries are all the same size. Jack’s a bit of a perfectionist and he hand cuts them then carefully mixes them with oil and spices until they’ve got the perfect blend of flavors, Then he bakes them until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Here’s another photo to entice you before I reveal the recipe.
If you want to try these you only need vegan cooking oil, golden potatoes and 4 spices.
Jack’s vegan chippie recipe (serves 3 restrained diners, 2 semi-restrained, and 1 with no restraint what-soever)
5 medium golden potatoes (preferably with the skin on). Slice into 1/4 inch thick long fries.
3 tbsp of vegan cooking oil of your choice (he uses avocado oil)
turmeric, chili flakes, fresh ground black pepper and organic no-salt seasoning (we buy it at Costco)
Preheat oven to 400F.
Put the cut potatoes in a large bowl, drizzle with oil and sprinkle on the spices. Toss until all of the chips are thoroughly and evenly coated.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the fries out as much as possible on the tray.
Put tray on lowest rack and bake for 45 minutes.
Remove from oven and lightly salt with Himalayan sea salt, if desired.
Devour as-is or with your favorite condiment.
