No Fry Fries Recipe

Usually when my family decides they want fries for dinner I turn to Gwyneth Paltrow’s No Fry Fries.

They’re really simple to make and are very yummy! Check out the recipe below!



  • 2 large russet potatoes (2/3 lb each), peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt


Heat oven to 450°. Cut potatoes in half horizontally; cut each half into 1/3-inch-thick fries and place in a bowl of cold water. I usually put ice cubes in the water as well. I soak them for at least one hour, changing the water every 20 minutes.

Remove from water and dry thoroughly. Toss with oil and sprinkle with salt. Place fries on a cookie sheet. Roast until browned and cooked through, turning occasionally, 25 minutes.  Cooking times may very though. Just check them from time to time and cook them to your liking.

I also use Cajun spices to make them have a kick. 🙂
