Oven Baked Garlic Parsley Fries

Did you know that potatoes aren’t empty calories, but that they’re filled with potassium, fiber, B vitamins, and Vitamin C? They’re affordable, versatile, and make a great snack or side dish. Cut them up being sure to leave the skins ON, as that’s where much of the nutrition is. You can use purple potatoes, red potatoes, white potatoes or sweet potatoes, or mix them up and make Rainbow Garlic Fries. Bake until crispy and toss them with some immunity boosting garlic, Vitamin K rich parsley and sprinkle with salt and pepper. This dish was inspired by the delicious garlic fries I ate while in Argentina, doused in delicious chimichuri. Simple food is good for the soul.
