Dominex: The Eggplant People Introduce “Veggie Fries”

Though I am not a junk food junkie, I don’t necessarily eat what’s best for me – why? It’s usually because of taste and/or texture and sometimes the look of the food too. One such food that always falls under the above statement is Eggplant. I’m not a fan. I’ve tasted it once in my life (I think I was 10 yrs old) and hated both taste and texture immediately and have not given eggplant a second thought since then until I was introduced to Dominex: The Eggplant People. Specifically, the newest product from Dominex, the Veggie Fries – my first taste of eggplant in two decades

The recently launched Dominex Veggie Fries is a unique and healthier alternative to traditional French fries or onion rings. The Veggie Fries pack a punch with crunch and flavor, yet offer a hearty, healthy addition to any meal. It boasts 65% less sodium and lower calories and fat per serving than the leading brand of French fries.
I must say I was very hesitant about trying out the Veggie fries but I admit I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. I might not be a full convert on eggplant (yet) but the Dominex Veggie Fries has definitely changed my attitude towards eggplant and I can truthfully say I will definitely buy as a fry alternative. I had quite a healthy lunch of crabcakes with a side of the fries – and believe it or not, I actually finished the fries first (and everyone knows my insatiable love affair with crabcakes).

Dominex Veggie Fries may be baked or fried in less than 20 minutes, and served as a side dish, mini-meal or snack any time of the day. The fries may be served with a variety of dipping sauces, or used in recipes for unique and delicious dishes. Take a look at the recipe for the above image below
