Homemade Fries

The perfect side to anything on the BBQ is homemade fries. Follow this quick and easy recipe for garlicy goodness.

Ingredients:

3 large Idaho potatoes, washed and cut in 1/2-inch slices

2-3 cups canola oil

Salt

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbs. olive oil

2 tsp. parsley, dried or freshly chopped

Directions:

Heat your oil to 400 degrees.

While oil is heating, soak sliced potatoes in cold water for 10-15 minutes to remove excess starch. Once they have soaked, dry them with a towel thoroughly.

Drop your dry potatoes into the deep fryer (may need to work in batches dependent on how large your fryer is), and fry for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.

Remove from fryer and toss with salt immediately. Top with garlic, olive oil and parsley. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

5 zucchini squash, divided in half and seeds scooped out

3/4 cup quinoa

1/2 cup chopped roasted red pepper

1/4 cup yellow onion, chopped

1/3 cup basil, minced

1 tbs. olive oil

Directions:

In a large sauce pan, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add quinoa and toast until lightly browned. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add 1 1/2 cups of water to mixture and cover the pot until the water starts to boil. Remove to lid and let simmer over medium heat until the quinoa has absorbed all of the liquid (about 20 minutes). Separate with a fork and add mozzarella and basil.
