Fingerling Fries

Another recipe using my purchases from the Farmers Market last week…today it’s Fingerling Potatoes. I didn’t want to mash these guys up because I love the shape of this potato, so I decided to make some Fingerling Fries for dinner one night (yes, you heard me right, I served fries for dinner!). These are super simple roasted potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper. My husband loves his dipping sauces, so I created a few options to go along with our fingerling’s. These are a great alternative to French Fries and the fingerling’s work well because they are longer like a fry for ease of dipping. I’ve served these at parties in the past and they always go over well, especially when served with multitudes of dipping sauces that allow everyone to individualize their fries – sweet, spicy or savory. This will not be the end of my posts about dipping sauces, trust me!

Fingerling Fries

3-4 lbs of Fingerling Potatoes
4-5 Tablespoons Olive Oil or other cooking oil
1 Tablespoon Garlic Salt
Fresh cracked Black Pepper

Pre-heat oven to 450°F

  1. Wash fingerling potatoes and cut in half lengthwise (leave skins on).
  2. Arrange potatoes on a sheet pan and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Place potatoes face down and cook for 10-15 minutes, flip and cook for 10 more minutes or until browned and cooked through.
  4. Cool potatoes for 5 minutes before consuming.
  5. Serve alongside different dipping sauces.

Sriracha Aioli
1 Part Sriracha sauce
3 Parts Vegan Mayo
A few splashes of Lemon Juice

“Bacon” Aioli
1/2 Cup Vegan Mayo
1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
2 Tempeh “Bacon” strips crumbled

Dandelion Aioli

This aioli was a new try for me and it turned out pretty good. It reminded me of dipping into honey mustard (except that it doesn’t include honey or mustard, go figure). I picked up the Dandelion Jelly in Eagle River, Wisconsin when I was on vacation visiting my Aunt Paula and Uncle Rob this summer. I was intrigued when I saw it at a local store so I had to buy it. It is sweet, but not as sweet as your standard strawberry/grape jellies.  As a matter of fact, it reminded me of honey – I think I have officially found a honey replacement!  I also picked up Banana Jam at this store and I am trying to think of something awesome to make with that.
