Ingredients

  • 1 Large Garnet Yam (or Sweet Potato), cut in half and then cut into ½ inch wedges. Leave skin on
  • 2 Tablespoon Coconut Oil—melted if solid
  • ½ tsp-1 tsp or more Sea salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

  • 3 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
  • Optional: Finely Chopped Green Onion, Cilantro and wedges of Lime to garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven to 425 degrees
  2. On a baking sheet (I line mine with a Silpat baking sheet), large skillet or cast iron frying pan; add Sweet Potato wedges. Toss with Coconut Oil (if solid it will liquefy at 75 degrees or higher), Sea Salt, Garlic Powder and Smoked Paprika
  3. Bake for 22-25 minutes. Open oven at the 15 minute mark to release steam. At this point, give the fries a quick toss with a large spatula in order to redistribute the spices and oil
  4. Remove from oven. Let sit for 3-4 minutes then sprinkle with Nutritional Yeast and lightly toss with spatula in order to coat fries evenly
  5. Serve immediately

Hazelnut Romesco Sauce

This sauce originated in the Catalonian region of Spain. Classically Romesco sauce contains bread crumbs, but we figured that we would give it a more contemporary twist and make it gluten-free. We love its thick, silky texture, the smoky flavours from the peppers and onions and the vibrancy from the sherry vinegar. If you can’t find pimenton; substitute smoked paprika. We have been enjoying this on roasted brussel sprouts.
