Oven Fries

about 500 g potatoes
about 500 g combination of carrots, celery root, parsley root, beetroot (or only carrots)
sunflower oil
spices of your choice*

Wash and peel the vegetables. Cut them like french fries as equal as possible. I used V-Slicer, but it can be done without it, only you’ll need a little bit more time. If using beetroot, place it into a separate bowl, and combine the rest of the vegetables in another. Pour oil into a bowl, over the vegetables, only enough to coat them. Now add the spices and stir well to distribute them evenly. Repeat the same for the beetroot. Place everything on two large oven pans lined with baking paper. Take care that the pieces don’t overlap. Bake in a preheated oven on 180°C for about 30 minutes. Beetroot will need about 10-15 minutes more.

*Hot pepper flakes, black pepper, curry, turmeric, powdered garlic, Vegeta seasoning, powdered ginger, bla, bla…. anything you like. Just keep it spicy, it’s better that way. Add salt if you don’t use Vegeta.
