For the Sweet Potatoes

  • 3 sweet potatoes skins removed, sliced then cut into fries
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp . olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp . chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tsp . smoked paprika
  • 3 tsp . potato starch
  • salt

For the Avocado Sauce

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime juiced
  • handful cilantro
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • salt to taste


  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 into it.
  3. Slice 1/2 slices width-wise. Cut them into fries from there. Don't slice them to small because they will shrink in the oven.
  4. Mix the spices and potato starch together.
  5. Coat in olive oil, then the spices and potato 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 in 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.
  8. While the fries are baking, make the sauce by adding all the avocado, cilantro, coconut milk, lime, and salt to a food processor and puree.
  9. Serve with the fries!
