Oven Fries with Pesto

By October 26, 2015
 3 lbs potatoes, scrubbed
 A few tablespoons pesto: Basil Pesto, Kale Pesto
 Olive or sunflower oil
 salt and pepper
1

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

2

Scrub your potatoes, and then slice into desired shape-- a wedge works best. If your potatoes are large, slice in half, place cut-side down on cutting board, and use an apple slicer for quick fries. Save the center "cored" portion for soups.

3

Toss them in a healthy amount of sunflower or another high smoke point oil (not olive.) Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast for 35-40 minutes, tossing every 10 to make sure they don't stick to the pan.

4

Allow to cool slightly, but when still warm toss with the pesto. Start with less and add more as you go.
