Russet potato home fries

EASY HOME FRIES

The quick story behind this recipe:

According to Eric, I have a knack for making awesome home fries.  In general, home fries are so simple to make, but he complains that his fries never turn out as good as mine do.  Personally, I think the key to great fries is the oil:  you want to use just enough but not too much.  (Who knows, I could be wrong.)  Anyway, here is my recipe for delicious fries.  We (three) have been eating a lot of these lately!

Easy Home Fries (Russet Potato & Yam)

Easy Home Fries (Russet Potato & Yam)

INGREDIENTS:

2 large potatoes (I like to use a russet and a yam)
2 scant tablespoons olive oil
Your choice of seasonings (I like to use different salt-free blends)

ASSEMBLY:

  1. Scrub the russets and wash & peel the yam.  Cut into ~1/2 inch strips/pieces.
  2. Toss the cut potatoes in a large bowl with the olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle seasonings on the potatoes and toss again.
  4. Spread the strips/pieces on a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Take care to space them so the fries don’t touch each other.
  5. Bake at 425 degrees for about 25 minutes.  (Check at 20 minutes).

That’s it!  It’s ridiculously easy, right?

Here, we had our fries for dinner with some salsa-seasoned pinto beans that Eric made, some peas, corn and Daiya cheddar style vegan shreds.

Well, I finally got around to creating a couple Plant Powered No Sugar No Grains (NSNG) burger recipes…

  • Basic White Bean & Seed Burgers
  • Curry Patties

For these 2 new recipes, I used my usual “burger formula,” except I substituted 1/4 cup ground flax seeds and 1/4 cup chia seeds for the 1/2 cup oat flour that I used before.

Here are my 3 previous gluten free burger recipes.  If you want to make these NSNG, then just make the same substitution…

Basic Burger Ingredients

Basic White Bean & Seed Burger Ingredients

BASIC WHITE BEAN & SEED BURGERS

1/4 C sunflower seeds, ground
1/4 C chia seeds
1/4 C ground flax seeds

dash celery salt
dash garlic powder
1/4 t black pepper
1/2 t smoked paprika
1/2 t dried parsley
1 t dried chives
1 t nutritional yeast

15 oz can rinsed white beans OR 1 pint homemade cooked white beans
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/4 C chopped onion
1/4 C chopped carrot
1 T tahini
1 t vegan Worcestershire OR tamari
1/4 t liquid smoke
1/4 t Tabasco

Coconut oil or Villa Cappelli olive oil (for cooking the patties)
Parchment paper (for forming the patties)

ASSEMBLY:

1. Use a food processor to grind the seeds into a powder.

2. Combine the ground seeds and dry spices in a large mixing bowl.

3. Use the same food processor to puree the beans, vegetables and wet ingredients.

4. Add the wet puree to the mixing bowl and stir.

5. Spread the burger batter evenly in the bottom of the bowl.  Use a knife to make 6 even portions.

8. You should be able to cook these right away, but I typically refrigerate for 30-60 minutes, to allow the seeds to fully absorb the moisture.

9. Cook with oil over medium heat.  Flip over every few minutes until the burger patties are nicely browned.

This one was cooked in Villa Cappelli olive oil.

11. The “raw” patties can be refrigerated for a few days or frozen for several months.  Store the patties on the parchment paper.  To cook from frozen, simply thaw the patties on the counter for about 15 minutes before cooking.
