Cumin-Scented Oven Fries * (Not IC Safe)

cumin oven fries 14


This is a simple recipe that gives your baked fries a lot of flavor!  We really liked it, but it was on the hot side as the recipe is written.  I would definitely omit the cayenne next time, personally.  Very tasty!


  • 3 baking potatoes, about 2.5 lbs, cut into 12 wedges each
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin**
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika**
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne (optional, I think)**
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon**

**Known IC irritants, tread carefully!



  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Lightly spray a jelly roll pan with nonstick spray.  
  2. Combine the cut potatoes and olive oil in one bowl. Combine the cumin, garlic powder, paprika, salt, cayenne, and cinnamon in another bowl.  
  3. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the potatoes and toss well.
  4. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the pan.  Bake 20 mins, then turn the potatoes, and bake until crisp and cooked through, 8-10 mins. longer.
