Sesame and potato is a fantastic combination! The ingredients compliment each other in flavor, texture and nutrition. We sprinkle a healthy amount of seeds onto our fries before they bake and let them get nice and golden brown. The little seeds are nutritional powerhouses that not only make things taste great, but also bring a nice helping of calcium and other essential vitamins and minerals. If you like sesame, definitely give these a try!
Recipe: Oven Baked Sesame Fries
Prep Time: 10m
Cook Time: 20m
Ready In: 20m
1 lb yukon gold potatoes, unpeeled, cut into wedges
1 Tbsp medium-high heat oil, avocado, grape seed, sunflower, etc.
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 Tbsp potato starch, optional, but makes fries extra crispy
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast, optional
generous pinch of salt, to taste
black pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly oil metal baking sheet, or cover with parchment paper. Toss potatoes in all ingredients until coated. If seeds don’t stick, drizzle with a bit more oil.
2. Spread potatoes on baking sheet in an even layer — the more room between the wedges, the better — and bake for 20-25 minutes. Flip once halfway through, until potatoes are golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately with condiments of choice. Enjoy!
