"Ever heard of baked taro fries? To all the AIP-eaters, nightshade-intolerants, and healthy fries-lovers, this recipe is a total game changer! Yams are great to replace normal potatoes, but when you get tired of that sweet taste and want something a bit more starchy, taro is a great, more exotic alternative. Taro is a delicious root vegetable I learned to love while I was living in Macau. One of my favorite things to do when I was there was to go to the Chinese supermarket and try to understand what all those weird fruits and vegetables were (yes, the labels were only in Chinese!). Serve as a delicious snack or a salad accompaniment."

  • Cook's Note:
  • It might seem like there is too much liquid in this recipe, but taro tends to get really dry so this amount is necessary.
