Oven Fries w/ Chimichurri

Why would you buy frozen fries, when these are so freakin' good?! Easy to make and you are controlling the ingredients. While these are in the oven becoming delicious, you could be prepping the rest of your meal. Simple side dish, that is fuss free.

I had a bit of leftover chimichurri, so I decided to use it to dress my potatoes. The chimichurri is clean tasting and has a nice tartness to it (Spanish version of salt and vinegar maybe?). They are so good, you could eat them by themselves. You could also omit the chimichurri completely and just eat the oven fries plain. How ever you'd like. 

Oven Fries w/ Chimichurri 

Cook Time: 40-50 minutes @ 400F
Prep Time: < 5 minutes
Serves: 4 


  • 1 lb organic red potatoes, cut into fries or 1/4 inch thick pieces
  • 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp of chimichurri

Preheat oven to 400F. 

Toss the red potatoes with the olive oil. Coat well. Spread the potatoes out evenly on a rimmed cookie sheet. 

Transfer the cookie sheet to the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes or golden brown. Make sure to toss the potatoes a few times while they are baking, so all sides are cooked well.

Once the potatoes are thoroughly cooked, salt and pepper to taste. Then toss the potatoes with the chimichurri in a bowl. Serve immediately. 


  1. These look really good. I bet they tasted amazing with the Chimichurri sauce.

  2. Great way to use the chimichurri, love roasted potatoes and of course the chimichrri.
