2. Carrot Chips

At first glance, you might mistake these baked crunchy chips for sweet potato fries. Their vibrant orange color and sweet flavor are similar, but that’s where their likenesses end. “Trust me, you won’t be able to eat just one, they are surprisingly good,” says Allrecipes member lutzflcat.

6. Green Banana Fries

Now you finally know what to make with those adorable little green bananas you’ve seen in the grocery store! Just make sure the bananas are green if you want them to taste like a traditional french fry. If you wait until they’re yellow and ripe, they will yield sweeter fries.

8. Crispy Turnip Fries

Who knew turnips were so tasty!? “I added a shake or two of panko to the bag with the seasonings and cheese. I cut mine into steak fry shape, and they needed probably twice as long in the oven, but they came out with a nice crunch from the panko,” says Allrecipes member wisweetp.
