Why You'll Love This Recipe

Chinese Five Spice: I love using Chinese five spice to bake and cook with. This simple spice mix, made up of five spices is a delicious way to add loads of flavor into a dish. Growing up, my mom always made a Chinese five spice shrimp stir fry. This versatile spice can be used in sweet or savory and it's amazing in both!

Asian Inspired Recipe: I love to bake with Chinese five spice and use it in recipes like my Spiced Cranberry Snack Cake, Blueberry Babka, or my Eggless Sourdough Molasses Cookies. It's one of my favorite spices for the holidays even though it's a Chinese spice! But, I also love it in savory dishes too, and these Chinese Five Spice Garlic French Fries is an Asian inspired recipe you will absolutely love!

Big Flavor: Chinese five spice is made up of five different spices. The five different spices can vary depending on which brand you buy. The first four spices are usually always the same, but it's the fifth one that can differ sometimes. My favorite Chinese five spice blend is from Frontier Co-Op. Theirs is made up of cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise, and white pepper. The flavor profile is a harmonious balance of sweet, savory, pungent, and slightly spicy notes. It's so good! I use Chinese five spice in my Pork & Peppers Lettuce Cups recipe, so if you love that then you will also love these Chinese Five Spice Garlic French Fries.

FAQ's

Can I use sweet potatoes instead?

Yes, feel free to use sweet potatoes in place of Russet potatoes.

Can I peel the potatoes?

Yes, if you prefer to peel your potatoes you can! I like the skins as they hold more nutrients, so I always leave them on, but either way is fine!

What can I serve these with?

These Chinese Garlic Five Spice French Fries are a great appetizer on their own! They also go great with burgers, try my Grilled Turkey Burgers or Classic Cheeseburgers.
