Baked Sweet Potato Fries + Three Vegan Dipping Sauces
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Make sure to soak the cut sweet potato fries for an hour before baking. This will help to remove the some of the starch, and will allow for a crispier baked fry.
For the avocado wasabi and tamarind ketchups you'll need to use a food processor. A blender could work, but expect to have a difficult time getting all of the sauce out from the bottom of the machine. I use a Cuisinart food processor, and highly recommend it.

Ingredients
Baked Sweet Potato Fries
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes,
  • 2 tbsp coconut, grapeseed, or canola oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
Chipotle Aioli Dipping Sauce
  • ½ cup vegan mayo
  • 1 tbsp chipotle sauce from a can of chipotle peppers (also called adobo sauce)
  • 1 tsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
Avocado Wasabi Dipping Sauce
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp wasabi powder (or less if you're sensitive to heat)
  • 1 tsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
Raw Tamarind Ketchup
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup dates, pitted (soaked if they're hard)
  • 2 tsp tamarind paste
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Instructions
Baked Sweet Potato Fries
  1. Peel the sweet potatoes, and cut into fry shapes––about ¼ inch thick and 4 inches long
  2. Soak the cut sweet potatoes in cold water for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°
  4. Remove the sweet potatoes from the soaking water, and dry them with a clean kitchen towel.
  5. Toss them on a baking sheet with oil, and spread them evenly on the sheet.
  6. Top with a sprinkle of salt before baking for 30 minutes. Flip the potatoes about 20 minutes into the baking.
  7. Serve with the dipping sauce.
Chipotle Aioli
  1. Place the vegan mayo, chipotle pepper, and lime juice into a small mixing bowl, and whisk until combined.
Avocado Wasabi
  1. Place ingredients in food processor and blend until creamy. You'll probably need to press down the sides of the food processor a couple of times to make sure it all gets blended.
Raw Tamarind Ketchup
  1. Place ingredients in food processor and blend until blended. Blend until smooth, or leave a bit of texture in the ketchup if you prefer.
  2. You'll probably need to press down the sides of the food processor a couple of times to make sure it all gets blended.
