The Best Sweet Potato Fries (with the best dipping sauce)


It’s crazy to think back at how much I used to hate sweet potatoes.  I couldn’t stand the smell or the taste.  That was the one dish I would always pass on at Thanksgiving.  Now, I don’t know what I would do without sweet potatoes in my life.  Funny how that works!  You get older and your taste buds change.  I now like sweet potatoes, bananas, and SOME fish.  I’m waiting for the day that I will like all seafood.  I want to like it so bad!  I’ve made sweet potatoes fries a few different ways; but, I found that when I use these ingredients, they turn out tasting the best.  I have also dipped them in a lot of different sauces and seriously this one is the best! (Just Mayo, Chipotle) They sell it at my local grocery store, Vons (Safeway), but I have seen it at other stores as well.  It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, lactose-free, non-GMO, Cholesterol-free, soy-free, egg-free, and DELICIOUS!  Trust me, you’ll love it.

What you need:  (serves 2)

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • Salt, pepper, and paprika to taste

What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line a medium sized baking pan with foil.
  2. Scrub your potatoes well with a potato scrubber under running water.  Dry them off with a kitchen towel, or paper towel.
  3. Cut off the tips of the potatoes, and cut the potatoes into thin strips (like French fries!).
  4. Put cut potatoes into a large zip lock baggie.  Add ¼ cup coconut oil and sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Seal the bag shut.  Mix it all around so the oil, salt, and pepper, coat all the potato fries.
  6. Pour the potatoes onto the foiled baking sheet, spread them around evenly.
  7. Sprinkle with paprika.
  8. Place in oven, and cook for 20 min.  Remove the baking sheet and lightly mix the fries around.  Place back in oven and cook for another20 min.
  9. Remove the fries from the oven and turn your broiler on.  Put pan under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, checking every 30 sec.  You don’t want them to burn!  But, this will give them that extra crisp.
  10. Let cool for about 5 minutes.

Eat with Just Mayo Chipotle Mayo, seriously, the best dipping sauce for sweet potato fries.  Ketchup is always yummy, as well.  Or you can mix the two, like I do sometimes!
