Purple Sweet Potato Fries with an Herby Tahini Sauce
purple sweet potatoes (regular orange ones will also work)
neutral high heat oil (we used sunflower, but avocado oil is good too)
1 1⁄2 teaspoon
Salt (plus more after they come out of the oven)
---FOR THE SAUCE---
Water (up to 1/2 cup, add slowly!)
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Wash potatoes well, pat dry and slice into even-sized sticks.
Toss fries in oil, starch and salt. Optional: add everything to a large plastic bag, seal and shake well to coat evenly.
Spread on baking sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes, until crispy and tender. Remove from oven and toss with more salt to taste.
While fries are cooking, add all ingredients (except water) to a blender or food processor. Pulse a few times to incorporate the ingredients, then start adding in water as it blends. Add water until it reaches a smooth consistency.
If you’d prefer not to use a blender, you can also chop the herbs finely and whisk all ingredients together instead.
