What you need for this recipe
Ingredients and Substitutions:
  • Russet Potatoes - I don't recommend substituting for any other form of potato. If you wanted to use something like a parsnip or yucca, that would probably work.
  • Truffle Oil - I used black truffle oil. You could also use truffle salt, white truffle oil, or another type of truffle-flavored product.
  • Garlic - Minced fresh garlic works the best!
  • Parmesan - I used grated vegan parmesan from Violife. You can use another brand of vegan parmesan or you can use real parmesan, or just omit entirely.
  • Parsley or Chives - I think either of these herbs makes a great garnish! Green onion would be great too.

How to make this recipe
Step 1: Prepare the Potatoes

Begin by scrubbing the skin of the potatoes with water to remove any dirt. Peel the potatoes if you don't want skin-on french fries (I left the skin on mine).


Use a sharp knife to carefully cut the potatoes into fry shapes.


Slice the potatoes down the middle, longways. Then, take each half of the potato and slice in half again, so that you have one flat potato panel and one rounded piece. Next, slice each of the 4 pieces into long strips. Refer to this video for fry-cutting technique.


Once all of the potatoes are sliced, place them in a large mixing bowl and cover with cool water. Let sit for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, mince the garlic cloves, chop the parsley, and grate the cheese.


Step 2: Bake the Fries

Pre-heat the oven to 400º Fahrenheit.


After 30 minutes, remove the sliced potatoes from the water and pat them dry, thoroughly.


Add the dried potatoes back to a (dry) mixing bowl, then add olive oil (or another neutral oil), the truffle oil, and the minced garlic. Toss until very well combined.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, you may need two trays.


Dump the fries onto the baking sheets, and spread them out as much as you can so that no fry is on top of another fry.

Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown.


Step 3: Finishing Touches

Once the fries are done baking, remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with salt (or truffle salt!)


Let them cool enough to touch, then serve in a bowl, garnish with parsley and vegan parmesan!

Expert Tips and Tricks
  • Pair this with a truffle-infused spicy mayo! Just mix together some truffle hot sauce with vegan mayonnaise and there you go! The perfect fry sauce.
  • Don't skip the step of soaking the potatoes. This helps to remove some of the starch, which results in crispier french fries.
  • Feel free to add more truffle products such as truffle salt, other truffle oils, and more.

Recipe FAQs
What flavor is truffle oil?

Truffles have a very earthy, mushroom-like, umami flavor! It works very well with salty and fatty components.

How long do these last?

I would not recommend storing leftovers of these truffle fries, as they will get soft and soggy very quickly.

Can I make truffle fries in the air fryer?

Yes, this recipe works in the air fryer! Instead of baking them in the oven, air fry these at 350ºF for 10 minutes, then shake the fries in the basket, and air fry for 8 more minutes.
