Gluten-free Avocado Fries

This is most probably the only Turkish food blog with several avocado recipes since it’s not a typical Turkish food. It is still not that popular in the country, which makes it quite pricy. We love its oily flavor and have it a few times a week in different versions. We would have it more often if it had a more reasonable price. We mostly have it raw as in this Spinach and Avocado Sandwich or in this Egg and Avocado Toast. When we crave for a healthy snack that can substitute for French Fries, we make these Gluten-free Avocado Fries and a chili strained your dip to pair with it.

When I searched for a good recipe for avocado fries, I noticed that they all call for breadcrumbs to coat the avocado slices. Inspired by fried fresh anchovies, I use cornmeal instead. So you can make these avocado fries if you have to follow a gluten-free diet. You can definitely use breadcrumbs if it’s ok for you.

I wanted to enhance the avocado taste a bit, so I used grated cheese and a litle melted butter in the coating as suggested in Baked Avocado Fries. I used Turkish kasar cheese, but you can use parmesan or mascarpone cheese as well.

We have these avocado fries as a side dish and we love to dip them into a dip made with strained yogurt, salt and chili powder. The yogurt sauce wonderfully complements the oily avocado flavor.

These avocado fries make a perfect snack for game nights too.

    I love the look of these, but how many calories & fat do you think it would be for this recipe? I am currently calorie counting and would love to introduce this to my diet every now and again if they’re quite healthy.

      Helena, Sorry but I don’t have an idea about the calories or fat these have. I don’t think they are high though.
