Hello from LA! We are finally at our final destination on our Pacific Coast Highway road trip and I’m seriously loving all the palm trees, sunshine, and the warm weather. I’d rather not got back to NorCal but we’ll be heading back on January 1st. At least that’s the plan for now.
I also plan to do a blog post on this trip with my mom and how we handled being on an AIP diet for almost 2 weeks while on the road, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I’m excited to share this delicious daikon radish fries with you. These are AIP as well, and I made them so my mom and I can enjoy them together.
If you are even a little bit normal, fries are the best, most addicting things ever. I can go to town on them, but I don’t love the crappy oils that they cook them in at restaurants and I can feel the brain fog afterwards. So I try to make them at home often, and these daikon radish fries came together the other day when I had a giant daikon radish leftover after making my slow cooker Korean short ribs.
If they look slightly burnt, that’s all good. That just means they crisped up nicely and will give that delicious crunch. My only complaint was that I didn’t make enough! These were dangerously addicting and were gone in no time. My mom couldn’t stop raving about how good they were.

- Lay the fries on a baking sheet in a single layer, making sure the pan isn't too crowded.
