This recipe started one morning with the idea of an alternate "fish & chips". Before I left for the studio, I checked the freezer and found that the only fish I had was a beautiful sockeye salmon filet. Not my usual 'fish & chips' choice, but once you start making substitutions, why stop? This actually simplified things, as my favorite quick way to enjoy a salmon filet is salt, pepper, bit of oil, hot pan, sear skin side down about 7-8 minutes (or until the skin is crispy), flip, another 2-3 minutes, remove from heat and rest. That was that recipe, in case you weren't paying attention.
For the Fries that aren't fried, my ingredients:
|Sliced sweet potatoes, coconut oil, salt, turmeric, |
paprika, cayenne, and nutritional yeast.
Just drizzle about 1 tsp. of coconut oil on top of the potatoes, then sprinkle the salt and spices on top, followed by the nutritional yeast:
|One bowl, less mess! Except maybe your hands, |
because that's the next step.
Next, get your hands in there and make sure the sweet potatoes are nicely coated with everything you just put on top of them.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and evenly space out the sweet potatoes, so they have room:
Stick it in a 400 degree oven, and let the sweets roast for about 20 minutes - your baking time will vary depending on how thin/thick you slice your fries.
|I love these wide, open bowls for piling high with homemade goodness!|
Sweet Potato Fries
1 medium (about 6" long) sweet potato, scrubbed and cut into 'fries'
1 tsp coconut oil
generous sprinkle of salt
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne
1 1/2 TBSP nutritional yeast
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Place sliced 'fries' in bowl a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients on top, and with your hands, lightly toss the fries to coat them evenly with all ingredients.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spread the fries across evenly. Roast in your 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes - more or less time depends on how thick you like your fries!
Serve as is, with a sriracha ketchup, or as a side to a nicely seared piece of fish for your own version of Fish & Chips!
