Paprika Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries are all the rage right now – rightly so! They are crazy delicious and way healthier than regular ol’ fries. And you’re going to fall in love with our Paprika Sweet Potato Fries served with a zesty Sriracha Lime Aoili.

Sweet potatoes are not only super gorgeous and vibrant, they are also healthy. They contain less calories than regular potatoes, AND are packed with more fibres, vitamins and minerals. Check out this nifty little side by side comparison – Potato VS Sweet Potato.

They are super simple to make too. A sweet potato, some lard and a couple of spices. And that’s all there is to it. Gotta love it!

When you pop these in the oven, you can get started on throwing together our Sriracha Lime Aioli. It’s a bit of a cheat, since we use regular mayonnaise instead of whipping up some egg yolks and olive oil. Just as yummy though!

Just half a cup of mayonnaise, a minced garlic clove, a teaspoon of Sriracha and a squirt of lime juice. Mmmm. Works great with the Paprika Sweet Potato Fries.

This is a great snack, lunch or side! It would go great with our Spicy Spinach & Tomato Chicken Roll Ups!

    I tried this last night as a side to braaied lamb chops and salad. It was AMAZING! We did not make the sauce because we’ve cut out dairy for a while, but if it’s so good alone, I’m sure the sauce just adds something amazing to it too! #drool
