Sweet potato fries with chipotle dip

Sweet potatoes are actually ranked as one of the most nutritious vegetables out there. They are high in Vitamin B6, potassium and dietary fiber. The skin of the sweet potato has a lot of nutrients, so leave the skin on for baked potatoes and fries (oops, I peeled it off).

Sweet potatoes are a fat free and a low calorie food. Try these sweet potato fries as a side dish or by itself as a healthy snack 🙂

What you need:
(for 2 people)

2-3 organic sweet potatoes
1/2 tsp ground chipotle spice (or other chilli based spice)
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp coconut oil (melted or not melted, doesn’t matter)
salt and pepper

What you do:

1. Preheat the oven to 425 ˚F/220 ˚C.
2. Cut the potatoes up into the shape of fries (see photos).
3. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients above and toss the potatoes around until everything is well mixed.
4. Arrange the potatoes on a baking tray with parchment paper/baking paper and put in the oven to bake for about 20 min or until potatoes are tender.

While the potatoes are baking, start prepping the dip 🙂

What you need:

3/4 cup Greek yoghurt
1/4 cup mayo, I used Vegenaise (an egg free “mayo”)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 lime
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp ground paprika
1/2 tsp ground chipotle
Chives/gressløk (optional)

What you do:

1. Add yoghurt, mayo, minced garlic, salt, pepper, paprika and chipotle together. Squeeze in the lime and mix until smooth. Chop up some chives (if you are using it) and drizzle on top of the dip.

Note:
This was too much dip for 2 people, so just half the recipe if you don’t want any leftovers 🙂 If you’re not a fan of chipotle, just leave it out for more of a garlic dip or replace with another spice you like. You can also replace the mayo by adding more Greek yoghurt.
