Serves: 3-4 serves
- ¼ c chickpea flour (or normal flour)
- ¼ t salt
- ½ t garlic powder
- ¼ t freshly ground black pepper
- 2-3 eggs, whisked
- ½ c ground almonds, or panko crumbs if not gluten free
- 2 T black sesame seeds
- 2-3 firm, ripe avocados, cold out of the fridge
- ½ c natural yoghurt
- ½ t cumin powder
- 2 T lemon juice
- a good grinding of salt and pepper
- ½ t smoked paprika
- a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1 t maple syrup
- 1 T finely chopped mint
- Preheat oven to 220 C. Line a baking tray with a baking sheet or baking paper.
- To make the avocado fries, using three separate bowls, in one dish, mix together the chickpea flour, salt, garlic powder & black pepper. In a second bowl, add the whisked eggs and in a third, the ground almonds (or panko crumbs if using) mixed with the black sesame seeds.
- Cut the avocados in half, remove the stone, and then cut each half into 6 wedges. Using a blunt knife or small spoon, scoop out of the skin.
- Dip the avocado wedges into the flour mixture, then the egg, and then the almond flour mix (or panko crumbs). Place on the baking tray.
- When all of the avocados have been coated, place the sheet in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes., turning half way through. The “fries” should be golden and crispy. Remove and serve with dipping sauce immediately, while hot.
- While the fries are cooking, combine all the dipping sauce ingredients in a small jar. Set aside.
