Sweet Potato Love Affair

Hello there!!

Hope everyone had an awesome week! I still can’t believe is Friday already! Love how time flies, specially because it means school will be over sooner than later!

I’ve been having such an amazing time here in Montreal, oh goodness, I feel so blessed I can’t shut up! Really, I feel so happy and grateful for my life, I just want to tell the world God ALWAYS has a plan for your life and everything is in His hands, no matter how ugly things might look, He’s always watching, if you know what I mean.

Anyways, today is Friday and I know many of us have plans for the weekend which is great because I wait for weekends so bad! Time to have fun people! And if by any chance you’re having people over for dinner, or some sort of meeting that involves food, well, these “fries” are gonna be crowd-pleasing. No kidding!

When I did these, I baked them, but like always, you have the chance to make the raw option too, by dehydrating for longer time. They are more into the sweet side and are super versatile! I mean, from party snack, to portable fries for picnics, work, school etc. And also, a great addition for salads or side dish

Orange & Pumpkin Pie Spice Sweet Potato “Fries”

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut “fries style”

1/2 small orange, juice

Zest from 1 orange

1/4  tsp fresh ginger, grated

1 tsp Simply Organic’s Pumpkin Pie Spice 

1 Tbsp soft coconut butter

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.In a large bowl, toss together all ingredients (except coconut butter), until potatoes are evenly coated with orange juice, zest and spices.

Place potatoes on a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes, or until done. For the raw version, simply dehydrate them overnight or until they are soft but not soggy. Mine got a little “well done”, just saying.

Remove from oven/dehydrator. Serve with coconut butter! I love dipping my “fries” while they still are warm, it softens the butter and it tastes divine!

Enjoy and have a super fun weekend! Talk to you soon!
