  • 90 g Maple syrup or Agave nectar

Baked French Fries with Homemade Ketchup

French Fries. Well, we all love them!

Serves: 4. Preperation time: 30 mins. Cooking time: 50 mins.

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 400°F, gas mark 4, 200°C (180°C fan-assisted).

Line a baking tray with My Relationship with Food silicon baking mat or parchment paper.

Rinse the sliced potatoes under cold water to release the starch and drain. Peel and cut into 1cm thick chips, season with salt and paprika and massage it in with the olive oil. Place the chips on one of the baking trays and pop them in the oven for 50-60 minutes (depending how crispy you like them), turn them over after 25 minutes, towards the end, turn them once or twice more.

To make the ketchup, in a medium size saucepan add the tomato paste, maple syrup, water, apple cider vinegar, garlic and season with herbamare. Whisk until smooth over a medium heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat to low, cover and let it gentle simmer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.

Remove from the heat and either serve warm or leave to cool and place in a kilner jar. Ketchup can be kept in the fridge for 2 weeks.

Oven baked fries taste so much better than traditional fries, and it’s such a great thing to know that nothing but fresh, healthy ingredients went into them. Such a great treat, so get dipping and sharing!

Enjoy…

LISA’S TIP – There is something about fries that is truly comforting, unfortunately the traditional way of cooking French Fries is deep fried which contains tons of calories. So how do we make this yummy snack healthier?  For one, let's just skip the deep-frying. This recipe will give you delicious homemade oven-baked French fries. This option is cleaner, healthier and somewhat easier than deep-frying, with the added benefit of homemade ketchup.
