Ingredients

  • 3
    medium potatoes
  • 2
    nori seaweed sheets, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL)
    vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp (2 g)
    onion powder
  • ¼ tsp
    salt
  • ¼ tsp
    ground black pepper
  • ⅛ tsp
    cayenne pepper

Hoisin mayo

  • 3 Tbsp (45 mL)
    vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL)
    hoisin sauce

Sriracha mayo

Optional garnish

  • sliced green onion
  • toasted sesame seeds

Directions

  1. Cut the potatoes* into strips, about ½ inch (1½ cm) thick. Try to cut the fries in similar thicknesses, so they cook evenly.
  2. Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C). Optionally, soak the fries in cold water for about 10 minutes to remove the starch**. Drain, then dry the fries well using a clean kitchen cloth.
  3. Transfer to a lined baking tray, and toss with the seaweed, oil, onion powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Leave as much room as possible between the potatoes on the tray. If over-crowded, the steam doesn't allow the fries to crisp.
  4. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Stop to give them a gentle flip once halfway.
  5. To make the hoisin mayo, combine the vegan mayo and hoisin sauce in a small bowl.
  6. To make the Sriracha mayo, combine vegan mayo with the hot sauce in another small bowl.
  7. When the potatoes are done, sprinkle with a dash more salt, transfer to a plate, and serve with the desired dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes work especially well for baking.
  • * If desired, keep the skin on the potatoes for extra crispiness and fibre.
  • ** This will help to get crispier fries.

Storage

  • Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
  • Best if reheated in the oven, to retain crispiness.

I made this yesterday evening and have a feeling that this is going to be one of the dishes that I make on repeat!

So happy to hear, Petronela, thanks a bunch!


hi - July 31, 2022, 9 p.m.

how do you make vegan mayo from scratch?

PUL Team - July 31, 2022, 9:58 p.m.

Hey there, thanks for the question! Vegan mayonnaise recipes usually include soy milk or aquafaba with vinegar and oil. There are lots of recipes online which may be helpful for exact measurements and ideas depending on what ingredients are accessible. In the meantime, we'll note down vegan mayo as an idea for future content which we can hopefully share soon 🙂

I was a bit skeptical at first because of the seaweed but these are absolutely mouth-watering!!! And the cayene gives them a kick that i love!!

I have made these healthy version of fries so many times for my family, every time a hit! The toasted nori taste of seaweed crisps which is just divine with the onion powder and mesh of crunch yet soft potato texture. We make this on the regular.
