Garlicky-Cilantro Fries and Henrik Sedin

Dec 19 2017, 5:50 am

I ran into Henrik Sedin in the produce section of IGA today. He was standing beside the cilantro looking very confused (go figure). In hopes that he would strike a conversation with me, I too went and stood beside the cilantro. Confused. After a few awkward seconds, I looked creepy so I quickly grabbed a bundle of cilantro (that I didn’t need) and squirreled my way to the cash register.

Clearly, there isn’t a bright future for us.


When I got home I looked at the cilantro in the same confused manner that Henrik had. What on earth should I do with “it”? Miraculously in a moment of need—the cilantro gods spoke to me. “Baked Garlicky-Cilantro Fries “they said. Ah, yes.


Baked Garlicky Cilantro Fries

5-6 russet potatoes, cut into thin fries

2 Tbsp olive oil

1/4  tsp garlic powder

1/2 – 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 c. cilantro leaves, finely chopped


1. Preheat oven to 425 & line a baking tray with tin foil.

2. Cut the potatoes into fries and damp dry with paper towel. Once dry, toss with olive oil, garlic powder & cayenne pepper.

3.Lay fries on a baking sheet and place in oven for 20-25 minutes (depending on your desired “crispiness”).

4. Once done toss in cilantro.

Thanks for the inspiration Henrik.

Love always,
