Avocado Frites


Avocado Frites

This is a fun new way to enjoy an avocado or to create a healthier version of French fries.


2 large avocados, ripe but not too soft, pit removed and peeled

1/2 cup vegetable broth

1 tablespoon arrowroot

1/2 cup cornmeal

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon turmeric

1/8 teaspoon white pepper


Preheat the oven to 400º F. Place a cooling rack on which to bake the fries on top of a cookie sheet.

Cut the avocado into lengthwise slices. In one bowl, mix the vegetable broth and arrowroot. In another bowl, combine the cornmeal and spices. Dip an avocado slice into the broth mixture, then dredge it in the cornmeal and place it on the baking rack. Repeat with remaining slices.

Bake for 22-25 minutes or until the cornmeal turns brown and crisp. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
