French fries and ketchup are the ultimate accompaniment to pizza. While I am sure you can make healthier versions of both, I decided to change things up and use sweet potatoes and a creamy honey mustard dipping sauce. Oh, and the sauce uses my homemade greek yogurt. Perfect!
These aren’t your average fries. I julienned the sweet potato to make them super thin and baked them till crunchy. To do this you can buy one of those fancy spiralizers (which I totally want, ahem…), but all you really need is a julienne peeler. Super cheap and works amazingly.
As for the sauce, it has 3 ingredients and is very fast to prepare. These fries are also great on their own without the sauce if you’d like. I spiced my fries with salt, garlic granules, and a pinch of chili powder. You can also spice them with a bit of salt and cinnamon. Either way, they are delicious.
Baked Sweet Potato Shoestring Fries
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and julienned
1 tsp of melted coconut oil
small pinch of chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic granules
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 375ºF
Julienne your sweet potato. Place it on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Drizzle the oil on top and mix with your hands till covered. Add spices and mix again. Spread out the fries on the sheet. It’s okay if they are touching. Bake for 20-30 minutes till crispy.
Some of the fries will get darker faster so you can rotate the baking sheet in the middle. Even though it looks a bit burnt, it doesn’t taste burnt. Just keep an eye on the oven so you really don’t end up with totally burnt fries. That would be a sad day, unless you like burnt foods…
Now for the dipping sauce.
Creamy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
2 Tb greek yogurt
1/2 Tb mustard
1/2 Tb honey, or 1 Tb if you want it sweeter
Mix together and enjoy.
