Dujardin Root Vegetable Fries Review

Dujardin Root Vegetable Fries

Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that fries are vegetables. Even when we opt for healthier options, like the Alexia frozen fries, fries feel more like a guilty pleasure than a nutritious snack.

The Dujardin Root Vegetable Fries, however, are undeniably veggies. Instead of being made from ordinary potatoes, they’re made from carrots, beets, parsnips, and sweet potatoes.

When we prepared these for the first time, we were surprised to see just how long they needed to cook. According to the package instructions, the fries should be baked for around 28 to 30 minutes. Since you need to turn the fries over halfway through, the process can actually take a little longer than that. Our fries seemed a little dry when they came out of the oven, but they were definitely crispy and cooked through.

The flavor of these fries varies based on the type of vegetable you’re eating. While we often enjoy beats, the beet fries are our least favorite option here. They have an unpleasant, slightly chewy texture that’s pretty unappealing, as well as a strong earthy flavor. Thankfully, the other flavors are a lot more appealing. The sweet potato fries are similar to some of our favorite frozen fry brands, and the parsnip fries have a great fluffy texture to them. We found the carrot fries to be a little chewy, but they still have a better consistency and flavor than the beet fries.

If you’re not a fan of earthy flavors, you can easily get around that by smothering these fries with sauce. Like most sweet potato fries, these fries are delicious with barbecue sauce. The parsnip fries are the most similar to standard potato fries and would be great with just about anything. The earthly flavor of the beet and carrot fries make them a little trickier to work with, but we think they’d work well with barbecue sauce, ketchup, or ranch dressing.

The Dujardin Root Vegetable Fries definitely aren’t a great option for diners that want to forget they’re eating veggies. However, they are healthy alternative to your standard frozen fries. If you don’t mind earthier flavors — or if you have a good sauce on hand — this is an easy way to add a veggie side dish to a meal. Just make sure you give yourself ample time to heat these fries up.
