Ingredients
 
 

Taro Fries

  • 1 medium taro about 14 ounces - 400g
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups oil for frying

Cilantro Lime Mayo

  • ½ cup vegan mayo
  • ¼ cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 teaspoon lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon lime zests

Instructions
 

  • Using a sharp knife, cut the taro root into ½-inch thick slices. Peel each slice and rinse them under cold water. Next, cut each slice into ½-inch thick strips or wedges.
  • Transfer the taro strips to a large mixing bowl. Cover with about 3 cups of water and add the salt. Soak the taro for about 30 minutes.
  • Next, drain the taro strips and rinse it under cold water. Spread the taro strips on a plate lined with kitchen paper towel to remove the excess moisture.
  • Add the oil to a deep frying pan and heat over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the taro strips and fry for 4-5 minutes, stirring from time to time to make sure the fries are golden brown on each side.
  • Once the fries are golden brown, remove from the oil using a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with more salt to taste and let cool for a few minutes before serving with the cilantro mayo!

  • In a small bowl, stir together all of the ingredients.
