Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic Aioli

The Fries…
I like carbs like anyone else and I love sweet potato fries so this is a relatively healthy fix for my carb cravings. I grabbed this recipe off of Pinterest with the original source being StaySnatched.com. I thought it looked interesting because it is similar to a regular potato fries recipe that I’ve used in the past.

2 Large sweet potatoes peeled and cut lengthwise
1 ½ Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsps olive oil
2 Tsp paprika
2 Tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Place the sliced sweet potatoes in a large bowl with cold water soak for an hour.

Preheat oven 450 F. As the oven preheats, place a baking pan in the oven for 6-8 minutes so that it becomes warm.

Drain the sweet potatoes and dry them with paper towels. Place the sweet potatoes in a Ziploc bag with the corn starch and salt. Seal the bag and shake to evenly coat the fries. After you shake them, put them in a bowl and toss them with the spices and olive oil.

Remove the heated pan from the oven. Line the pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking oil spray. Spread the fries onto the pan and coat them with the oil and seasonings. Make sure the fries do not touch. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Test the fries with a fork. If they are tender, flip them using a spatula.
Bake for another 5-10 minutes, or until they are tender-crisp. Turn the oven off and leave the oven door open. Keep the fries in the oven for about 5 additional minutes.

Serve with the Garlic Aioli below or match with some other tasty treat!

The Garlic Aioli…
I have used a number of Garlic Aioli recipes, but since this one was provided with the fries, I included it but with my own twist. Give it a try and if it does not have enough garlic, add more! You can never have enough garlic, unless you are my husband Adam and then the after effects might be a problem. 😉

1 Medium avocado
1 Tablespoon mayo
¼ Cup sour cream
2 Garlic cloves minced (or more if you are a garlic fan like me)
Juice of half a lime
Salt and pepper to taste

Add the avocado, mayo, sour cream, garlic and lime juice to a blender.
Blend for 30-45 seconds or until smooth and creamy.

Season with salt and pepper.
