Oven baked French fries with parsley and lemon

Can you tell I’m in love with parsley at the moment?
I bought a bunch of it the other day and I was worried that I would never use it all up before it went bad. But you know what? Parsley goes well with everything. Everything. I even had a parsley salad the other day that has begun to grow on me. I am loving parsley so much that I’m thinking of buying a pot of it from Freeman’s Herbs to grow on my windowsill or my desk. I have always wanted to grow my own basil and cilantro and I think that parsley would be perfect for me to grow as well. I would love to be able to snip a couple leaves of basil for a tomato sauce or a handful of cilantro to make salsa.
I think if I grew parsley as well I would make these parsley and lemon French fries on the daily. They are just so good and that’s all there is to it. Fresh and light but also crispy and satisfying as French fries should be.
3 medium baking potatoes
2 tbsp of canola oil
1 tsp of lemon juice
3 – 4 sprigs of fresh parsley
pinch of salt and white pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Slice the potato into French fries and chop the parsley.
3. Toss the French fries gently with the canola oil. Then toss the French fries with the lemon, the parsley, the salt and the white pepper and lay them out on a baking tray.
4. Bake them in the oven for about half an hour, turning them over at about halfway, or until they are crispy and brown. Be patient here! They will turn out so much better if you wait until they are well done!
