Chef notes

Have fun with your vegetables! These snack-able and stackable fries are easy to eat and make an impressive presentation.

Technique tip: Do your frying in a pot much larger than you think you'll need to avoid any hot oil spilling over the sides.

Swap option: You can use almost any other vegetable for these fries. It's especially good with asparagus.

Preparation

For the soy dipping sauce:

Mix all the ingredients together and let marinate covered in the refrigerator overnight. Strain and set aside until ready to serve.

For the Portobello fries:

1.

Heat the canola oil in a large pot to 325°F.

Cut the mushrooms into think strips, about 1/2-inch thick, like steak fries.

Lightly dust the mushrooms with 2 tablespoons of the flour.

4.

In a bowl, mix together the flour, club soda, eggs and salt to form a batter.

5.

Dip the portobello fries in the batter.

Cook the fries in for about a minute. Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate and let cool.

7.

Increase the heat to bring the oil to 375°F.

8.

Cook the fries again at the higher until they are golden brown and crispy. Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Season the fries with sea salt and serve with soy dipping sauce.
