Vegetarian Low Carb Avocado Fries with Garlic Dipping Sauce
Crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, these delicious fries are low carb due to the almond flour. Best results are achieved using ripe, but firm avocados in this recipe. Riper fruit will not hold up to the baking process.
- Avocado Fries
- 2 medium avocados
- ½ c. almond flour
- 5 T. finely grated parmesan cheese
- 1 t. garlic powder
- 2 t. Italian seasoning
- 1 egg
- 2 t. water
- Dipping Sauce
- ½ c. mayonnaise
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 medium lemon, zested and juiced to yield 2 T. juice
- ¼ c. fresh parsley, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or a piece of parchment paper.
Peel and slice each avocado in half. Cut each half into 6 wedges, rendering 12 wedges from each avocado.
In a shallow dish, mix almond flour, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg and water. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Dip each avocado wedge into the egg mixture, then place in the dish with the parmesan breading mixture. Using a spoon, toss the breading on top of the avocado, ensuring that the entire avocado wedge is nicely coated with breading mixture. Repeat with all 24 wedges.
Place wedges on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 6 minutes. Gently flip over and bake for 5-6 additional minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Cool on baking sheet 2-3 minutes.
While fries are cooling, combine mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, chopped parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
Serve avocado fries alongside the garlic dipping sauce. Enjoy!
