The fries are tossed with olive oil, aromatic curry powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and then baked in the oven.

While they’re baking, I whip up a healthy and super flavorful basil mint sauce for dipping.

And just like that, you’ve got an awesome side for lunch or dinner, or a tasty snack that’s super flavorful, and healthier than normal fries.

They sound simple, but they’re really quite special, and so very addictive!
