No-Potato French Fries

Deep-Fried Dill Pickles
Ready for a french fry fake out? There are so many faux french fry recipes to love. Avocados fries, sweet potato fries, polenta fries -- all make delicious alternative french fries. Veggie fries, made with peas or asparagus, are another way to get your french fry fix.

Avocado Fries

Texture is the name of the game in the world of avocado fries. Crushed tortilla chips make a crunchy coating around the soft fruit, and they crisp up even more in the oven.

Yuca Fries

Yuca roots are starchy and mild in flavor, making them a natural but exotic alternative to potatoes. Get classic crispness with a quick fry in vegetable oil.

Sweet Potato Fries

Baked sweet potatoes have fewer calories than regular fries, plus that hint of sweetness you love. Pair them with a tangy mayo-base dip for the ultimate party snack recipe.

Plantain Fries

Fans of thick-cut steak fries will love the just-crisp and chewy textures of plantain fries. Contrast their slightly sweet taste with a squeeze of lime juice.

Sweet-and-Fiery Polenta Fries

Sugar and spice makes everything nice -- even French fries. Toss crispy (and low-cal!) polenta fries in a sweet and spicy mix for bold, unexpected flavor.

Asparagus Fritter Sticks with Dill Mustard

Appease your fry craving and your healthy diet with lightly battered fried asparagus. Tangy dill mustard is ketchup's chic sister.

Crunchy Parmesan Sugar Snap Peas

Low-calorie snap peas get a crunchy makeover with Parmesan cheese and panko crumbs. Serve them while they're hot for tasty faux French fries.

Deep-Fried Pickles

Nothing beats fried pickles for satisfying a fried-food fix. Seasoned simply with garlic powder and black pepper, the tangy flavor stands out. Dipping in ranch is a must. For a more traditional fry shape, try pickle spears instead of slices.
