Crispy Oven Baked Fries with Guasacaca



I don’t usually post recipes. But when I stumble upon a great one in the kitchen, I must share.

I visited a lovely Venezuelan Cafe last week, complete with traditional dishes like black beans, arepas, and fried plaintains. So delicious. I discovered this amazing green sauce there, pictured above- guasacaca.

Never heard of it?

Well, neither did I but now I am in love! Plus, the name is really fun to say. Anyway, I am whipping it up any chance I get! It’s very much like guacamole, but better and creamier! It super easy to make and tastes good on just about anything. I’ve tried it with success on a a fresh salad, some tortilla chips, a veggie burger and here, where I have paired it when crispy, oven baked french fries.

At the cafe, it was served along side Yucca fries but I wanted to keep it simple and went with some organic red potatoes. Not only is this recipe super easy, it’s delicious, and perfect for kids as a much healthier alternative to traditional french fries. No frying, which means no trans fat involved.

Okay, let’s get to it!
