- 2 large sweet potatoes or yams
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Avocado Mayo
- 2 large Haas avocados
- 1/2 lime
- Pinch sea salt
- Pinch cayenne pepper
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Wash sweet potatoes and optional peel. (I usually just wash my potatoes well and keep the skin on.)
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into fry-shaped pieces. Try to cut them into similarly sized pieces so the fries will bake evenly.
- Toss the uncooked fries into a mixing bowl or a plastic bag, add your choice of oil, enough to lightly coat the fries. Season with salt, cinnamon, and spices of your choice. I’d try to use half a teaspoon per potato or so. Mix/shake to distribute evenly.
- Place the fries onto a baking tray and arrange all evenly.
- Bake for 15 minutes, then flip the fries so they can cook on all sides. Bake for 10 to 15 more minutes, until the fries are crispy. You’ll know they’re done when the surface of the fries change from shiny orange to a more matte, puffed up crispy texture. It’s essential to bake them long enough, otherwise they won’t be crispy. Don’t worry if the edges are a little bit brown, they will taste more caramelized than burnt.
- Cut avocado into half and scoop out the flesh. Put it into Vitamix blender.
- Add lemon juice, salt, and cayenne pepper and blend together.
- With blender running, add olive oil slowly. You many have to stop the machine several times to redistribute ingredients. Puree to a smooth creamy mixture.
- Makes 3/4 cup.
- This is a great dish (or side dish) that everyone will love, even little people will enjoy these super crispy fries.
- Its also a great source of complex carbohydrates, healthy fats and fiber.
