Serve over warm taro fries. This Taro Fire Fries with Green Herb Aioli recipe is full of rich flavors that will make your taste buds sing.

Make the Green Herb Aioli.
While the taro fries are baking, let's whip up the Green Herb Aioli. This delicious aioli pairs perfectly with the crunchy taro chips and adds an extra zesty flavor. To make it, mix together garlic, Dijon mustard, basil, oregano, parsley, olive or avocado oil and salt to taste in a small bowl. Whisk until all ingredients are mixed together and refrigerate until serving. Enjoy!
To make this aioli even better, you can also add chopped cubes of avocado for an extra dose of creaminess and flavor. This will also give the green herb aioli a thicker consistency that helps it coat your taro chips or whatever else you decide to serve it with. This bright, flavorful sauce is sure to be the star of any dish and take your taro fries to the next level.
Gather your other ingredients.
Before you get started, let's gather the rest of the necessary ingredients. For the taro fries, you'll need 2 medium-sized taro root tubers; 1/4 cup of olive or avocado oil for brushing; and 1 teaspoon of sea salt for seasoning.
For the green herb aioli, you will need 4 tablespoons of a good-quality mayonnaise; 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice; 1 tablespoon of finely minced garlic; and 2 tablespoons each of freshly chopped parsley, dill and chives. Finally, you'll need a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and preheated oven at 400°F. Once you have all your ingredients ready, it's time to start preparing your taro fire fries with green herb aioli!
Fry up the fries in oil with taro powder and sea salt.
Heat the oil in a large skillet or pot over medium-high heat until it reaches 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut the taro root into 1/4-inch thick slices and add to the hot oil. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with taro powder and sea salt and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to carefully remove the fries from the oil andtransfer to a paper towel-lined plate or baking sheet. Serve while hot and enjoy!
For the green herb aioli, combine the garlic, mayonnaise, tahini, and lemon juice in a food processor. Add the herbs (such as parsley, cilantro, and basil) and blend until you have a creamy sauce. Pour into a bowl or airtight container. Serve with the taro fire fries for an extra punch of flavor. For variety, try adding your favorite spices to the fries before frying. You can also experiment with adding different herbs to the aioli for bolder flavors!
Serve it hot with a generous dollop of green herb aioli and your favorite garnishes!
Now, it's time to really top off your delicious taro fire fries! A generous dollop of green herb aioli is perfect for bringing all the flavors together. You can make your own or buy some store-bought vegan aioli. Serve the fries with your favorite garnishes and voila! Delicious, hot french fries made just the way you like them. Enjoy this flavorful twist on an old classic side dish!
The secret to getting crispy, flavorful taro fire fries is to fry them twice — in two batches. This way, the batch that’s been cooked first cooks more evenly as you’re completing the second batch and allows for extra crispiness. Mix up different seasonings each time you make this recipe so that your vegan taro fries have a variety of flavors. Top these fries with diced vegetables, herbs, chives, or even vegan cheese for a truly decadent treat. When it comes time to serve your taro fries with green herb aioli, don’t forget to drizzle some hot sauce for an added depth of flavor!
