Food Republic: 7 Non-Potato Alternatives To Traditional French Fries


Eggplant Fries at Cobblestone Café (Boston)
In an effort to swap out fries for a healthier snack — but one that still hits upon the crunchy and salty cravings of the masses — the team at this North End restaurant landed on eggplant. The vegetable is coated in flour, garlic powder, oregano and parsley before it’s fried in olive oil for at least two minutes (longer for thicker strips). Once golden brown, the fries are removed from the pan, sprinkled with salt and served on their own or with any of the restaurant’s 12 burgers. 227 Hanover St., Boston, MA 02113;
