Skip your traditional way of French fries thinking. You don’t need potatoes to prepare one of your probably favourite dishes. Not only carrots might be a good alternative to make tasty chips, but also kohlrabi fits perfectly in the fry picture. You can turn kohlrabi into French fries with a healthier profile, read less carbohydrates, and a subtle touch of flavour without giving up the crunchy and crispy side of the French fries story.
The chips are seasoned with garlic, paprika and onion powder and are served with a delicious truffle mayonnaise which can easily be made by mixing mayonnaise with truffle oil. To create a gastronomic piece of heaven on earth, sprinkle some grated cheese over your French fries. Believe me, you won’t even miss the real thing. They will for sure become one of your favourite indulgences… that’s a promise.
