Don’t Settle for Just Potato Fries

Really, French fries are doubly tasty when made from these vegetables

Estimated read time: < 6 Minutes

Potato is one of the best ingredients for creating yummy snacks, be it potato chips, baked potatoes, honey chilly potatoes, or my all-time favourite—French fries. I can never get bored with French fries, even if it means deep-frying potatoes. But I’m also always up for trying new things. What if we could have the same crispy kick, the chance to dip it in ketchup, but juicier, healthier fries with a break from the age-old concept of the potato ones?

I’ve collated a few such veggies that make the best fries you’ll ever taste. And trust me, having a variety for French fries is a blessing in disguise.
