Avocado fries are a great culinary trend that doesn’t run out of steam (and for good reason). Crispy on the outside and a center that melts like butter.
You don’t even have to take the fryer out to get a spectacular result. I prefer baking, which greatly reduces the fat content of the recipe. An original way to make a change from the traditional French fries.
Easy Baked Avocado Fries
Here’s how to settle your stomach with a healthy, original recipe full of good fatty acids: addictive as you like, make my crispy avocado fries at home. Rich in fiber, protein, vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids (those necessary for the proper functioning of the body and which reduce the level of bad cholesterol, which is more,) this recipe requires only 5 ingredients and will avoid you from now on to throw away the avocados that you cut without being able to eat them instantly in their entirety.
While the fries were cooking, I took the opportunity to make a mango mayonnaise. I crushed mangoes in syrup (without the syrup) and mixed it with mayonnaise. The quantities are simple, I make half mayo and half mango purée. If you don’t find mango in syrup at the grocery store, you can make it with peaches.
- 1 avocado
- 1 beaten egg
- 1 cup (250 ml)
- flour 1 cup (250 ml)
- Canola oil
- Preheat the oven to 230°C. Pour the flour into a plate. Beat the egg in a bowl.
- In a second bowl, prepare the breadcrumbs by sparing the breadcrumbs, cumin, a little salt and pepper.
- Peel the avocado and cut it into French fries after removing the stone. Dip the fries in the flour, then in the egg and finally in the breadcrumbs. Place them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.
- Bake for about 15 minutes.
This recipe is quite interesting since French fries have the nutritional assets of potatoes: they provide complex energy carbohydrates (starch), transit regulating fibres, mineral salts, in particular potassium, vitamins C and group B, especially B1, PP (B3), B6 and B9.
Since it is nourishing, the avocado is an excellent appetite suppressant, which can help you lose weight and reduce abdominal fat, thanks to all the vitamins (vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and K) and fatty acids it contains.
Avocado also promotes a better assimilation of other nutrients, such as those from tomatoes and carrots, and therefore contributes to a healthier diet.
