The secret to oven baked crispy French fries lies in soaking the potatoes in cold water then baking them at two different temperatures. I make these far too often lol.


1.5 lb russet potatoes(2 large), scrubbed

1.5 Tbsp olive oil

1.5 tsp paprika

Salt & pepper to taste


1. Cut potatoes into desired size then place in a bowl cold water. Drain, refill bowl with cold water and let potatoes soak for an hour.

2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Drain water and dry potatoes well with a towel.

3. Toss with oil, paprika, salt & pepper. Spread evenly in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking sheet

4. Bake for 20 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 425°F. Continue to bake another fries 20-25 minutes.

5. Season with additional salt before serving.

I wondered about using a bit of miso paste and water when recipes call for oil but SOS free? Any suggestions on replacing oils ? I can saute in this but to make oven baked fries?

I've never made fries without oil. However, most oil free oven fries recipes simply bake the fries without the oil; no additions except seasonings. I'd be interested to learn how they turn out if you make the using miso.
