Crispy Oven-Baked Low-Sodium French Fries


Serves 4

Just because you’re going low-sodium doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy foods like French fries. Instead of super-salty frozen fries or restaurant versions, just make your own in the oven. The bonus here is that since these fries are baked instead of fried, there’s no messy oil from deep-frying to clean up. My family loves these and they’re so simple to make. Plus, they’re nutritious and taste great. What more could you ask?
