Kohlrabi French Fries | Low Carb | Keto

Updated: Jun 16, 2018

Looking for a low carb alternative to french fries? Kohlrabi makes awesome fries, which can be baked or fried according to your liking. They don't taste like potatoes but dressed up with your favorite dip or sugar-free ketchup they make a perfect low calorie, low carbohydrate alternative to traditional potato french fries. You can season with a variety of seasonings, such as garlic, lemon pepper, garlic & herb, onion powder, paprika, curry, cumin, or chili powder.


They are quick and easy to make once you have them peeled and cut. They take about 10 minutes to fry or 30 minutes to bake in the oven. I fried in vegetable oil, drained, seasoned, and kept warm in the oven until ready to serve. You do need to eat these as soon as possible for two reasons, 1. They are delicious! 2. They do have moisture and will soften up as they sit.


I served with sugar-free ketchup. They would be great with ranch dressing, or a garlic mayonnaise dip. For a decadent dinner one night I made these fries and served with low carb fried fish & shrimp!

Kohlrabi Fries | Low Carb | Keto


Ingredients:


Raw kohlrabi

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Optional seasonings )garlic, lemon pepper, garlic & herb, onion powder, paprika, curry, cumin, or chili powder)


Directions for Baking:


1. Peel and slice raw kohlrabi into fry-sized slices using a vegetable chopper or by hand:

  • Lay each half cut-side down. Slice lengthwise into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick slices.

  • Stack about half of the slices and cut lengthwise into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick fries. Repeat with the rest.

2. Spread out the strips in a single layer on a baking sheet.

3. Drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper (or other seeasonings) if desired.

4. Bake 20 to 30 minutes at 400 degrees until the kohlrabi softens slightly, but still has a light crunch.


Directions for Frying:


1. Peel and slice raw kohlrabi into fry-sized slices using a vegetable chopper or by hand:

  • Lay each half cut-side down. Slice lengthwise into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick slices.

  • Stack about half of the slices and cut lengthwise into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick fries. Repeat with the rest.

2. Heat 1 cup of vegetable in a deep pan over medium-high heat (you will need to adjust the amount of oil depending on the size of your pan). When the oil is hot, carefully drop the kohlrabi slices into the pan, being careful not to crowd them. Let the slices fry for 4-5 minutes per side – it may take a little less or more time depending on the size; watch carefully and turn the slices when once they start to turn golden.

3. Remove fries and drain well on paper towels.

4. Season with salt and pepper, or other seasonings.


These would be great cooked in an air fryer.


Enjoy!
