The Best Low-Carb Baked French Fries


Step 1First, preheat the oven to 230 °C/ 445 °F (fan assisted), or 250 °C/ 465 °F (conventional). Wash and peel the swede.

Step 2Cut them into spears about 1/4 inch (1/2 cm) wide (or even less for crisping them up). As I realised in my Keto Chili Cheese Fries Recipe, the wider you cut them, the more difficult it will be to make them crispy. Place the fries into a bowl and remove any excess water using a paper towel.

Step 3In a small bowl, mix the oil, paprika, salt, pepper and ground cloves (if used).

Step 4Pour the oil mixture over the fries evenly and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Make sure the tray is not overcrowded and use two of them if needed. Cook for 25-35 minutes (it depends on how thick you cut them). Check the fries regularly and turn the baking tray a couple of times to make sure they are evenly cooked.

Step 5Remove from the oven and serve with meat and quick sugar-free ketchup or mayonnaise (try my homemade mayo). Store i the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat and crisp up in the oven before serving as they will be soft and soggy.
