Fry-tastic Asparagus Fries: A Crispy And Delicious Treat

You can prepare asparagus fries in your oven after coating the fresh spears in flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs. Asparagus fries are crispy, crunchy substitutes for French fries. They are made by pre-cooking fresh asparagus stalks, coating them with batter or breadcrumbs, and then frying or baking them until they are crisp and golden brown. As an appetiser, side dish, or in place of regular potato French fries, consume asparagus fries.

The nutritional value of asparagus depends on your cooking technique and the additional components you use, but asparagus is a healthy food. Asparagus is a high source of potassium, vitamin K, vitamin A, and vitamin C and is low in calories, cholesterol, and carbs. Air-fried or oven-baked asparagus fries can be relatively better substitutes than deep-fried asparagus because deep-frying adds a large amount of fat and calories. Before baking the breaded asparagus in the oven, spray it with cooking spray or olive oil to give it a crispiness similar to that of deep-fried asparagus fries.

Here’s how you can make your asparagus fries at home:


 1 bundle of asparagus

 1 teaspoon of pepper

 140 g chopped almond

 2 tablespoons dried oregano

 35 g grated parmesan cheese

 1 tablespoon of garlic powder

 2 eggs

 1 teaspoon salt

For the dip:

 285 g Greek yoghurt

 ¼ teaspoon pepper

 2 tablespoons chives

 1 tablespoon lemon juice

 ¼ teaspoon salt


 The oven should be preheated to 425°F (220°C).

 Trim the asparagus ends by 1-2 inches (2.5–5 cm). Place aside.

 Crushed almonds, parmesan, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper should all be combined in a big bowl.

 In a dish or shallow bowl, whisk the eggs.

 After evenly coating the asparagus with eggs, toss it with the crushed almond mixture.

 Place a single layer on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning halfway through.

 While the fries are baking, make the dip. In a small dish, mix all the ingredients for the dip. Refrigerate until required.
