Chunky Sweet Potato Fries with Guacamole

By Saturday, February 22, 2014 , , , , , ,

The sweetness of these fries combined with the crunch of the skin is addictive. They're so delicious, so easy to make and so good for you too! These sweet potato fries are delicious on their own, with chunky homemade salsa, or my favourite- with guacamole.


Serves 2-3

For the fries

You will need:

2-3 large sweet potato
coconut oil
salt

Preheat your oven to 200C and cut your sweet potato into fries about the thickness of your thumb. It's important to cut them a bit chunkier because they shrink when they're baked and this way they're less likely to burn. Place them on a baking tray and toss them with coconut oil and a little salt, I used garlic salt. You could also use a little paprika for a spicer flavour. Then simply bake for about 40 minutes, or until crispy on the outside but soft in the middle. Eat immediately!

For the guacamole

You will need:

1-2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup chopped onion
1-2 tomatoes, chopped roughly, seeds removed
2 tbsps finely chopped fresh coriander
1 small chilli, chopped finely
lots of lemon juice
salt and pepper

Mash your avocado roughly in a bowl and add the onion, tomato, chilli, salt, pepper and coriander. Squeeze lemon juice over the surface, cover with cling wrap and place in the fridge for the flavours to mingle. Once ready to serve, stir well and enjoy

    1. It depends how hungry you are! If you did three large 300g potatoes then that would probably be enough for a meal for three people, especially if you make the guacamole with 2 avocados and split it between the three of you!

    1. Just as much as it takes to coat the potato fries evenly :)

  4. Hi Siobhan! I was wondering if I could replace the coconut oil by olive oil, will the fires then have the same taste?

    1. Sure, that's fine! I just prefer to cook with coconut oil, it'll work with either :)

    1. I don't think so, no! I just keep the skins on for extra fibre and for a bit of crunch, it's the same regardless
