Rosemary Roasted Steak Fries

Eat Healthy

These robust steakhouse-style frites from the Dr. Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease™ (Ornish Reversal Program) prove that you can make homemade fries that are crunchy and delicious without the need for added fat. 

Yellow-fleshed potatoes, such as Yukon golds, are great to use thanks to their firm texture, but medium-sized red-skinned potatoes also work well. 

To make the wedges, cut each potato in half, then quarters. Cut each quarter into two or three wedges. 

Skip the sugary dipping sauces and try these fries with a side of something more substantial, such as some hummus

In addition to the traditional burger, these potatoes also go well paired with eggs, lettuce wraps and even salmon for a health spin on fish and chips!
