Last Sunday I spent a lovely girls’ afternoon with my friend Marina here at home. While she was taking pictures of the apartment, I prepared us a little lunch. I’m not big into junk food but when in Belgium… The frites are just too good to ignore! So, as I had some frozen bio frites in the freezer, I decided to serve them with a Greek style salad.
As I prefer to cook the fries in the oven, they often lack that wonderful crispiness. But this time I got an idea and it worked perfectly: First cook the fries in the oven, then heat a tablespoon of coconut oil in a wok pan, throw the fries in and let them fry for a few minutes, turning them regularly. This way you’ll get your crispy perfect Belgian frites without trans fat or cholesterol: Coconut oil is actually said to be good for you!
