Given the opportunity to combine two of my favorite foods, it’s hard to say no. Potatoes and avocados are epic for many reasons… one of which being that they are both extremely versatile. From mashed potatoes to fries and guacamole to a sauce, it’s hard to go wrong. And these Roasted Potato Fries with Avocado Aioli are the perfect way to combine the two.

So, here’s the deal, my husband is a meat and potatoes kinda guy and I grew up in a mostly vegetarian household. So while meat makes an appearance on the table every now and then, potatoes are on the menu at least 3 times a week. Oven baked fries are one of my favorite side dishes because you can jazz them up with different spices and serve them with just about anything.

Roasted Potatoes with Avocado Aoili

Gaby Dalkin

Ingredients
  

  • 5 large Yukon Gold potatoes cut into wedges
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

For the Avocado Aioli:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil
  • 1 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Place the potato wedges, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and salt and pepper in a zip top bag and shake to combine. Transfer the potatoes a parchment lined baking sheet and evenly spread out the wedges. Transfer to the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, flipping once, until evenly baked and golden brown.
  • Whisk remaining olive oil, chopped garlic, and parsley in a large bowl. Add the mixture to the hot fries and toss to combine. Taste and season with extra salt and pepper as needed, and toss to coat.
  • To make the Avocado Aioli:
  • Cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Remove the avocado from the skin and place the avocado flesh onto a cutting board. Cut the avocado into 1-inch pieces and transfer the avocado to a blender. Add the sour cream, basil, garlic, lemon juice, red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt and pepper into the blender and process until smooth.
  • Taste and add salt and lemon juice if needed. If the mixture is too thick, add a teaspoon of water and blend until smooth.
  • Serve with warm Roasted Potato Fries.

    Great potatoes but it’s all about that dip for me. Definitely dolloped on a burger or on top of some crispy fish tacos!
    Take care..

    love that you made avocado aioli – is there anything you can’t make with avocado?? I’m gonna go with no.

  4. Julia

    Im going to bedazzle an avocado and send it to you. You’re the avo queen and deserve to have an avo with jewels on it.

  5. Bev Weidner

    Holy crap. Seriously, I’m going to make this as soon as I regain my motor skills. GORG.

  6. Amy

    The aioli sounds divine – can’t wait to try it! How long do you think it would keep in the fridge (granted there’s any left!)?

  7. Kristina Vanni

    I am a huge fan of avocados and the flavor combination of this Aoili sounds delicious! Can’t wait to try them with a classic roasted potato!

    Potatoes are my favorite! We just taught our K-5th graders yesterday about good carbs and bad. Of course, you chose a good one. 🙂 They look amazing, and I can’t wait to try the avocado dip–fun idea!

  12. brandi

    that aioli looks incredible – so creamy! i’d like it slathered on a burger AND my fries.

  13. Gleeful

    That looks delicious. I can’t wait to try it. I love finding new things to make with avocado. Yum!

  14. Julia {The Roasted Root}

    I’m big on dips too and love avacado. I can’t stand mayo, so homemade aolis are awesome for me on sandwiches! This recipe looks great, I’ll let you know how it turns out when I make it. 🙂

    Maybe a stupid question, but do you really put the potatoes in the processor and blend ’em up with the avocado as part of the dip? They are in the dip AND you use them as a , uh… dipping instrument? lol That’s what your instructions say. Just checking. lol

    • Gaby

      thanks for catching that Emily! all fixed 🙂

  16. Victoria
