Taro Fries


We really like taro. It’s one of those things that we’d never tried/ seen/ known existed until we came to China. We’ve ordered it several times at local restaurants, and I’ve been wanting to try it at home. I tried making taro fries the other day and we were really pleased. They’re still not as good as regular French fries, but we enjoyed them for a change and will definitely make them again!


1 large taro root

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon chili oil

salt and pepper

Directions and Notes:

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Cut the taro into thin strips shaped like french fries.

3. Combine the oils and pour over the taro pieces; toss to coat. (Depending on the size of your taro root, you can add a little more or a little less oil.)

4. Add salt and pepper.

5. Bake the fries for 10 minutes, turn the tray, and bake another 10-20 minutes until cooked through and lightly browned. Serve with ketchup or other sauce.
