2mediumsweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into fry shapes 1/4-1/2 inch thick
SPICY CREAM SAUCE
1/4cup + 1 tablespooncoconut cream (Either buy the cans labeled coconut cream or scoop just the firm cream out of the can of FULL-FAT cocnout milk, Thai Kitchen brand is best.)
2tablespoonsunsweetened apple juice
1 tablespoonlemon juice
1/2teaspoonchili powder (no added salt)
1/8-1/4teaspoonsea salt, to taste
black pepper, as much as you like
Preheat the oven to 415°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper, so they won't stick.
Make sure you have cut your fries into the right thickness. This is the key to crispy fries. If they are too thick, they don't crisp up well. Spread out evenly onto the pan. Season generously with salt and pepper. I do not use oil, but if you prefer, you can lightly spray the fries with nonstick spray before seasoning them.
Bake for about 15 minutes until they are fork tender, then turn the broil on low for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are very golden brown and crispy. Watch closely so they don't burn. This can vary depending on how strong your broil setting is.
Just like regular fries, these stay crispy and are best when eaten right away as they will get soft after a few hours. However, you can reheat them in the oven to make them crispy again.
To make the sauce, add all the ingredients to a cup and whisk well until smooth. A friend of mine also mixed all of the ingredients with an avocado and that is delicious too! This also works great for tacos and burritos or salad dressing.
