Have You Ever Made Healthified “Fries” From This Food?

By Sara McGlothlin

I once went to a wellness conference where avocado fries were being served for lunch. I’ve made Healthified fries from sweet potato, carrots, and parsnips, but this one was new to me. At first thought, perplexed over how the texture of avocado would even hold up, I was confused how this was even possible. The degree of ripeness matters – not too firm, not too soft, but just right. With the grain-free breading blend below, and some delicious dipping sauce, this side dish could win over even the pickiest of eaters. Serve them as a side, an appetizer, or incorporate into salads for some extra flavor and flare!
