There is nothing quite like hot crispy french fries dipped in ketchup. I realize that most french fries from restaurants are not super healthy. When I was eating Whole 30 last summer, I made homemade baked potato dries in my oven. They’re always excellent and are healthy if you leave the skins on. ( The skins is where the nutrients lay)
Did you know that you can make a “fry” out of almost any vegetable? All you need to do is to get creative, making any said vegetable into a “fry shape,” roast it in the oven and dip it in ketchup.
There are several great reasons to make vegetable fries
1. Making veggie fries are a great way to get your kids to eat their vegetables willingly
2. Almost all veggie fries I have tried are delicious!
3. A great way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet!
Here are some items that will help you make killer vegetable fries!
- A Crinkle Cutter will help you make authentic-looking vegetable fries
- An extra-large sheet pan will give you enough space for cooking all these delicious vegetables
- Parchment Paper or a Silicone Baking Mat will keep the chips from sticking to your pan
- Most vegetable fries are best when sprinkled with some sea salt.
- Many vegetable fries can also get crispy when you cook them in an Air Fryer.
I have collected the very best veggie fry recipes for you from across the great wide web! Hopefully, these will give you some inspiration to add a bunch of vegetables to your next grocery order and eat them, 🙂 Most of these fries are gluten-free, vegan, and can be easily made Whole 30 compliant depending on on on what spices you like to use.

4. Beet Fries
6. Butternut Squash Oven Fries
10. Turnip Fries
11. Carrot Fries
12. Jicama Fries
14. Kohlrabi Fries
15. Pumpkin Fries
These all look delicious, but they are still fried. Try putting them in the oven with just a little oil and some seasoning, like salt, pepper, cayenne and even oregano.
These all look great, but is the calorie count that much lower. What is the calorie savings. It’s frying the part that makes it bad? Just wondering.
Most of these veggies have a less calories than potatoes. Most of these can actually be baked in the oven. I guess calorie count can vary, depending how much oil is used.
Thank you for all these alternatives. Wanted to let you know that the link for the butternut squash fries does not work. However, I found it elsewhere, and I have to tell you they were fabulous! I’m going to buy more of the squash today.
Love loce love the ideas. Can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing!
