Yesterday I posted this picture on my Instagram and since everyone loved it and asked about my sweet potato fries, I decided to share with you this simple yet fantastic and addictive recipe for healthy sweet potato fries.
I served my fries with other vegetables and made a lunch bowl, I find that mixing different flavors and textures in my meals really hits the spot and makes everything taste so much better!
Sweet Potato “Fries” (Oil/Salt Free) with Avocado Mash
1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and cut lengthwise
200 grs fresh organic lettuce
1 medium avocado, ripe
1 lime, juice
Sea salt and spices to taste
2-3 Tbsp dijon or yellow mustard (or my delicious “Tahini Sunshine dressing“)
Preheat oven to 180ºC.
Start by steaming your sweet potato wedges (already peeled) and steam for 15-20 minutes until soft but making sure they are not overcooked, otherwise they will fall apart.
Transfer the “fries” to a cookie sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle with desired herbs & spices, I use curry spices and cracked pepper. Bake for 20-35 minutes until lightly golden and crispy, but making sure they are still soft.
Meanwhile, mash your avocado and mix with 1/2 lime juice, sea salt and finely chopped cilantro (optional). Transfer mixture to the avocado skin. Remove sweet potatoes from the oven and let them sit for a few minutes.
Prepare your bowl by adding the lettuce, avocado mash, sweet potato fries, the other half of lime and before serving top the fries with mustard or my Tahini Sunshine Dressing to give some extra flavor to your meal.
