Smoky Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Avocado Dipping Sauce
Smoky and spicy sweet potatoes are baked to perfection and served with a light and refreshing dipping sauce!
Servings: 2 people
Ingredients
For the Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 sweet potatoes skins removed sliced, then cut into fries
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 3 tsp corn starch
  • salt to taste
For the Avocado Sauce
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • salt to taste
Instructions
For the fries
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Slice a chunk off of the sides of each sweet potato to make a flat surface to cut from. This will keep the sweet potato still while you are slicing it.

  3. Slice lengthwise. Cut them into fries from there. Don't slice them too small because they will shrink in the oven.

  4. Mix the spices and corn starch together.

  5. Coat potato slices in olive oil, then the spices and corn starch mixture. Don't salt until they come out of the oven. Salt will extract moisture and will make them soggy.

  6. Place a cooling rack on a sheet pan and cover with parchment paper. Top with the sweet potatoes, but don't overcrowd the pan! It's better to use two pans if your sheet pan isn't big enough.

  7. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they are cooked and the edges have darkened. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
For the avocado dipping sauce
  1. While the fries are baking, make the sauce by adding all the avocado, cilantro, coconut milk, lime, and salt to a food processor or blender and puree.

  2. Serve with the fries!

Cucumber Quinoa Salad
This Cucumber Quinoa Salad is made with lots of fresh basil and feta, tossed with a simple lemony vinaigrette, and it's SO fresh and delicious! Plus, it's naturally gluten-free and quick and easy to make.
Servings: 2 people
Ingredients
For the salad:
  • 2 cucumbers diced
  • 1 cup chilled* cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp roughly-chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 colored bell pepper seeded and diced
For the lemony vinaigrette:
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning homemade or store-bought
  • pinch of salt and black pepper
Instructions
To make the salad:
  1. Toss cooked quinoa, cucumbers, red onion, feta, and basil until combined. 

To make the vinaigrette:
  1. Whisk oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and spices together in a small bowl until combined. Coat the salad ingredients and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

*If you add hot quinoa fresh out of the pan, it will melt the cheese and wilt the basil a bit in this recipe. So I recommend cooking it beforehand and letting it chill in the refrigerator before making the salad. Or, if you need to cook it immediately beforehand, just spread the cooked quinoa out in a thin layer on a baking sheet and pop it in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. That will help it cool down nice and quickly! 

**Cook time does not include the time needed to prepare the quinoa. See this post for instructions on how to cook quinoa.
