Taro Fries

| By Ulli Stachl

Taro is a root vegetable that has three times more fiber and nutrition as a regular potato. Try making fries with this recipe by swapping spuds for taro and see if you can tell the difference. 

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs taro root, peeled, cut into fries
  • 3 tbsp grape seed oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. 

2. In a large bowl toss the fries with grape seed oil, salt, and pepper.

 

3. Spread on a baking sheet in a single layer (you might have to do this in batches) and bake 20 to 25 minutes until fries begin to brown a bit on the edges.

 

4. If desired, toss with the sesame oil before serving and adjust seasoning.
