Avocado fries that can be made with four ingredients, bake in 15 minutes, and are vegan, paleo, and keto?! Some things just sound too good to be true but behold my friends, these cajun avocado fries will change your life for the better.
What are avocado fries?
Well, exactly what they sound like! They are avocado slices, breaded, and in this case, baked to perfection. They are good for you because they are a healthy source of fat and this recipe is oil free! Baked avocado fries are gaining popularity with those following a Keto diet because they are a great source of fats and have numerous other health benefits like lowering cholesterol!
Most people assume breaded foods are not vegan since they usually call for eggs as a binding agent. This recipe is totally vegan because no eggs are necessary! They are also gluten-free since we use almond meal instead of breadcrumbs too!
Okay, so how exactly do you make avocado fries you ask? Start by simply cutting an avocado, peeling off the skin, and then cutting into wedges. Next just dip in some almond milk and last cover in almond meal mixed with cajun seasoning. Put on a nonstick baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes. That’s all there is to it people, this is a pretty fool-proof recipe!
This healthy snack recipe makes the perfect appetizer for parties or even game day! They also make a great side dish to accompany a number of meals; perhaps a veggie burger? The cajun seasoning makes these avocado fries so delicious and seriously takes them to the next level! If cajun or spice is not your thing, I recommend Italian seasoning, some dill or rosemary, or just go with the basics: salt and pepper! However you decide to make them, your end result will be amazing.
Now let’s talk about some dips. I’m all for creamy dips! I made this dip with vegan mayonnaise, some greek yogurt, and buffalo sauce (highly recommend!) If strict vegan, you can probably substitute the yogurt for a vegan one. These would also taste great with salsa, hummus, or guacamole? If that avocado overload? No such thing? Kidding, that may be overdoing it a tad.
