Loaded Sweet Potato Fries
I’ve been on a sweet potato kick lately and this recipe is one for the books! Plus sweet potatoes are great for a lot of reasons... just to name a few: 

~ soluble fibers, such as pectin, may increase fullness, decrease food intake, and reduce blood sugar spikes by slowing your digestion of sugars and starches 
~ A high intake of insoluble fibers has been associated with health benefits, such as a reduced risk of diabetes and improved gut health ⬅️

Sweet Potato Ingredients:
  • 4 medium organic sweet potatoes (peeled)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (or other oil of choice)
  • 2 drops Lime essential oil
  • ½ tsp dried thyme (optional)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder (optional)
  • ½ tsp paprika or chili powder (mild or hot)
  • ½ tsp sea salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)
  • ½ cup dipping sauce
Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1 cup organic mayonnaise or vegan mayo
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp water (thin as needed)
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander, mint or/or parsley
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey (optional, to taste)
  • 2 – 4 drops Lime essential oil (to taste)
  • ½ tsp sweet or spicy paprika (to taste)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)
Optional Toppings for Serving:
1 – 2 ripe avocados mixed with 3 drops lime oil and sea salt (to taste)
½ cup non-dairy cheese - I use this one 
¼ cup non-dairy feta cheese - I use this one 
salsa and/or hot sauce
dipping sauce (drizzle some on top of fries)
chopped coriander and/or spring onions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking tray with baking paper.

2. Peel the sweet potatoes then cut the ends off the potatoes and cut them in half along the middle and cut those pieces in half. Now you are ready to carefully cut the potatoes into fries.

3. Place the fries in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, Lime essential oil and spices to coat.

4. Place the fries on the prepared baking tray and bake for 25 minutes then carefully turn the fries over and bake for approx. 20 minutes longer or until cooked through and a little crispy.

5. While the fires are baking make the dipping sauce by placing all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blending until well combined. You can also finely cut the herbs and just mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Taste the sauce and add a little more Lime essential oil, maple syrup and/or salt, if desired.

6. When the fries are done place them on a large platter. Mash the avocado in a bowl with the Lime essential oil and sea salt. Top the fries with the avocado and any additional toppings. Then drizzle with the dipping sauce, sprinkle with freshly cut herbs and spring onions and serve immediately.
