Don’t worry if you buy tons of potatoes. Freezing them correctly will help you organize your meal preps and most importantly to avoid you to eat them all in a week.
Peeled potatoes- I had 2 pounds at home
Enough water to cover the potatoes in the saucepan
3 tablespoon of salt
1 Tablespoon of coconut oil
Place the potato lengthwise on a cutting board; slice in half. Cut each half lengthwise into 1/2- to 3/4-inch slices, creating large wedges.
Put them in a saucepan and cover with enough water, salt, and coconut oil.
Bring the potatoes to a boil and cook for 4 more minutes. The fries should not be too soft. If you are not sure, it is always better to undercook them. Remove from heat and strain.
Pack about 8 oz fries in each ziplock bags and freeze them.
You have now healthy frozen fries, just don’t fry them later!
It’s way healthier to use an air fryer or oven to make the fries. You will have delicious, crispy, golden brown french fries.
- A safe way to thaw the frozen fries: The Ziploc bag should be submerged in cold tap water. When thawed completely, add salt and the spices you like.
- Spices I love to use for fries: rosemary, paprika, and oregano
- Air fryer Brands I recommend: Phillips and Farberware
