French fries is an incredibly satisfying comfort food for many of us. Yet the carb heavy, grease-filled snack is sometimes a little too overwhelming and heavy. So we look to alternatives.
Veggie fries is a great alternative to the savoury snack, and can promise more fiber and essential vitamins and minerals per serve. And no, we're not just talking about the all-time classic, sweet potato fries.
We've rounded up 5 delicious, unique, and easy recipes that you can replicate at home - to keep your cravings at bay!
1. Asparagus Fries
Boasting 30 minutes in prep & cook time, this asparagus fries is doable even for the ultra-busy! Replace breadcrumbs with chopped almonds for a high fiber, low carb alternative.
2. Parsnip Fries
Parsnip belong to the same family as celery, parsley and carrots. They are notably rich in folate, which has aging protective benefits and minimizes your risk of heart disease. The chewy texture of baked parsnip is simply irresistable - a good enough reason to make this healthy snack!
3. Zucchini Fries
A richer version of the insta-famous zucchini noodles (zoodles), zucchini fries similarly allows you to reduce your carb intake through a simple swop. This recipe uses breadcrumbs and parmesan for coating, much like the asparagus fries above - making it perfect even for the pickiest foodies among us!
4. Avocado Fries
Who says avocados are just for milkshakes, salads, and guacamole? Just imagine taking a bite of the creamy, soft, and moreish avocado fries. We're sold.
5. Taro Fries
Taro is a mainstay in many Asian cuisines, but rarely in this form. Their starchy nature makes taro an awesome and interesting substitute for potatoes. This recipe even uses coconut flakes for crunch, making it a processed carb-free rendition of veggie fries!
