Crispy Oil-Free Oven-Baked Fries & Orange-Ginger Guacamole!

By 16:50 , , , , , , , ,

Looks like a greasy plate of fried food ( least it does to me) but of course it's not! ☺ Crispy Oil-Free Oven-Baked Fries with a huge dollop of freshly made Orange-Ginger Guacamole. 
This was dinner a week ago and I'd love to have it now! Great as a snack too ;)
The fries are made of a small block tofu, a small carrot, a small Japanese sweet potato and a small orange sweet potato.

Tofu fries! I froze a small block of firm tofu overnight, then left it in the chiller for a day. This makes it easy to press the liquid out and it becomes chewier and spongy! ☺

Carrot fries. They didn't turn out as crispy, but still so good!

Super crispy orange sweet potato chips! These were so good. Usually I don't like orange sweet potato as much as Jap sweet potato because it isn't as sweet, but it tasted super yummy as chips!

Jap sweet potato fries! I made something similar earlier and I think this has a crispier coating, but it's not as savoury - I skimped on the nutritional yeast here; I'm nearly out! :X Hehe. Feel free to add more nutritional yeast if you'd like.

Fries with Guac is such a great combination!
The Orange-Ginger Guacamole I made here was actually just a bunch of things I threw together, but it tasted good! It was light and tangy.

Crispy, oil-free, oven-baked tofu goodness ♡‿♡ 
 I'll try this with zucchini and tempeh next time!
Crispy Oil-Free Oven-Baked Fries

For the crispy coating, mix together:
  • 3 tbsp oat flour (rolled oats pulsed in food processor)
  • 2 heaped tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (or more if you'd like)
  • 1/2 tsp salt free seasoning (or a mix of dried herbs)
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • dash of cayenne & cracked black pepper
  • salt to taste (optional)
  • [this is enough for about 3/2 of the amount of chips/fries shown here]
  1. Cut up desired veggies or tofu into fries or chips.
  2. Toss well in the coating. Press some of the coating on to ensure that it sticks, and lightly shake excess off.
  3. Lay out on a well oiled baking sheet and bake at 180 deg C in a preheated oven. The sweet potato chips take about 25 mins, the tofu & sweet potato fries about 30 mins and the carrots about 35-40 mins.
  4. You can flip the chips/fries over midway through baking, but I found that it's not necessary.
  5. When done, leave to cool slightly and consume immediately.

Orange-Ginger Guacamole
Serves 1 as shown here, double/triple/quadruple this to your liking! ☺

Blend the following together:
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1/4 cup cooked edamame (green peas will work too!)
  • 1 tsp PB
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp orange zest (omit of you don't want that slight bitterness)
  • Juice & pulp of 1/2 a sweet, medium orange
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • chili flakes

By the way, did you know that tofu is an animal? XD
