These crispy, crunchy, cheesy keto avocado fries are a sure winner especially when paired with this easy romesco sauce. The air fryer crisps these delicious fries without having to fuss over a deep fryer. The secret to perfect crispiness while making sure the avocados keep their shape is twofold: first, choose avocados that are ripe, but still firm. Second, we give a little rest in the freezer after we’ve breaded them.

Start cooking

Serves: 4

3 firm ripe, fresh California Avocados, peeled, seeded and sliced into ½ inch wedges 4 oz. shredded parmesan 1/2 cup almond flour 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. pepper 1/4 tsp. salt Romesco Sauce 1 roasted red bell pepper from a jar or homemade 1 roma tomato, halved 1/2 cup slivered almonds 1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar 2 cloves of garlic, peeled 1 tsp. smoked paprika 1/3 cup olive oil 1/4 tsp. salt or to taste 1/8 tsp. pepper, or to taste
  1. Refrigerate avocado wedges until cold.
  2. In a blender or food processor combine parmesan, almond flour, and spices and pulse until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Add about ⅓ of the mix to a plate and press avocado wedges into the mix to evenly coat. Repeat until all the wedges have been covered. Arrange wedges in a single layer and place in the freezer while you make the sauce and preheat your air fryer.
  4. Add red pepper, tomato, almonds, vinegar, garlic and smoked paprika to a blender or food processor and blend for about 10 seconds or until a chunky paste forms. With the motor running, drizzle the olive oil in slowly, then add salt and pepper to taste (sauce can be made up to 2 days in advance,
  5. Preheat air fryer to high (We set to 390 º). Working in batches, spray the avocados with a bit of cooking spray and arrange a single layer of avocados in the air fryer basket. Cook until crispy on all sides about 5-7 minutes– turning often. Serve immediately.

Serving Suggestion: Serve alongside a bowl of green gazpacho.

Beverage Pairing: Chilled White Wine.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
