Avocado “Fries” with Sriracha Aioli

December 11, 2015

I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but I didn’t used to like avocados. Which is a little crazy considering how often I eat them nowadays… Aka at least once a day. I’ve even been known to bite straight into an avocado when a knife can’t be found! Plus I’ve heard that the new Hollywood diet includes eating tons of healthy fats, which I am more than happy to do if it means I’ll be able to look like Jennifer Aniston in 20 years.

Avocado “fries” are a play on one of my guilty pleasures–real french fries.Β With all of the flavor and none of the guilt, this recipe is perfect for when you want a hearty snack for a Netflix binge or atop a burger for dinner (which actually sounds like a wonderful idea now that I’m thinking about it)!

The sriracha aioli was a delicious last minute addition to this recipe and really gave a kick to the avocado. If you’re looking for a healthier (aka less mayo-y) sauce to dip in, I’d recommend this smoky tahini sauce! I’ve made it and the parsnip fries quite a few times in the past few months and it’s mouthwateringly good.

INGREDIENTS:

Avocado “Fries”

  • 2 tbsp flour
  • Salt & pepper (Season to taste… I’m a fan of salt so I usually tend to use too much)
  • 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 egg whites (whisked until foamy)
  • 2 avocados, preferably ripe but still firm (if the avocados are too mushy they’ll be hard to batter!)

Sriracha Aioli

  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • Salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Preheat broiler to high.
  • Combine the flour, salt, and pepper into a bowl and combine. PlaceΒ both egg whites into a second bowl, and place the breadcrumbs into a third bowl.
  • Halve the avocados and remove pits. Slice each of the halves into smaller pieces (I cut mine into four slices so that I had sixteen slices overall).
  • Dredge the avocado slices into the flour mixture. Dip into egg whites and then dredge in breadcrumbs.
  • Repeat for each slice and then place onto baking sheet.
  • Broil the avocados for about 5 minutes, or until the Panko coating is a golden brown. Remove and let cool.

For the Sriracha aioli, all you’ll need to do is combine the light mayo, Sriracha, lemon juice, and salt to taste. Super easy!
