Sure you can use potatoes, but for extra beta carotene, you can also use sweet potatoes, butternut squash, jicama, turnips, daikon radish, or even carrots!

Easy, Healthy Recipe for French Fries (using Any Vegetable!)

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut the vegetable of your choice in 1/2-inch thick strips, trying to make them all about the same size and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (we use unbleached parchment paper).
  3. Using olive or vegetable oil in a spritzer bottle to control how much you use, lightly spray the fries, season them with paprika, oregano, Cajun, or any spice of your choice.
  4. Bake until they’re a nice golden-brown and crispy! Baking time will vary depending on the veggie, but most root veggies will need about 20-25 minutes.

Enjoy!
