There are two different ways you can make these baked rainbow fries- you can bread them for extra crunchiness like in the top image.
Or you can keep them traditionally plain, simple, making it perfect for dips. It all depends on what YOU are in the mood for!
I sometimes like to go all in with the crunchy breaded fries when I want some real comfort food that is still pretty healthy.
This recipe uses a combination of both breaded crispy fries and traditional plain fries.

sliced purple sweet potatoes

The real secret to these fries is the mixture of potatoes.
Each of these potatoes has different nutrients, different health benefits, different flavors, and of course, different colors.
Mix it up and try it with your favorite mixture of potatoes!


I was able to find all of these at my local health food grocery store, but if you aren’t able to find Japanese sweet potato and purple potatoes, you will also find them at your local Asian/ international grocery store. It’s worth the extra trip- it’s so much fun to explore all the goodies you wouldn’t normally find.

purple potato cut into fries

Whether you want to bread your fries or bake them naked- this first step is the same.

Chop up your potatoes into fry shapes, coat in salt, and then let it sit for 10 minutes.

This helps pull out extra water out of the potatoes so they will be more crispy.
After the 10 minutes is up, drain the liquid, and coat in coconut oil.
For the naked fries that’s it, then you just bake them.
For the coated fries, you need either aquafaba or to make flax egg mixture (much healthier and more affordable than store bought egg placer), then you need to mix up your flour mixture, then dip your cut fries into the egg mixture, then into the flour mixture, then you bake it (or air fry it!)

If you don’t have aquafaba on hand, instead do 3 Tbs flax seed water with a cup of water. This will help make the fries more crispy, hold the flour better, and is a great source of omega 3 fatty acid.

Try out these baked rainbow fries with other veggies like beets, carrots, or parsnips!
