Sweet Potato Spicy Fries

Sweet Potato Spicy Fries

Spicy sweet potato fries are my current favourite way to prepare sweet potato.  They are so quick and easy to make and taste good with everything.  I eat them on their own as a snack, alongside some sort of dip, like hummus or guacamole.  I add them into my salads to a little sweetness and spiciness.  Or, I have them along side a “burger” to recreate the traditional burger and fries.  Pictured below with my salmon sweet potato patties, you can find the recipe here. These always seem to be a hit and last well in the fridge making them a great option to meal prep and have throughout the week.
