BAKED SWEET POTATO FRIES WITH PEANUT LIME DRESSING

BAKED SWEET POTATO FRIES WITH PEANUT LIME DRESSING

This may be the best thing I have ever eaten. The combination was a chance discovery. I happened to have leftover Peanut Lime dressing and some random sweet potatoes in my pantry. This must have been divine intervention. I now have to share these Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Peanut Lime Dressing with the rest of the globe, as everyone deserves this delicious food pleasure.

They are sweet, savory and spicy. These Baked Sweet Potato Fries With Peanut Lime Dressing are a great way to satisfy all your flavor cravings.

ARE THESE BAKED SWEET POTATO “FRIES” CRISPY?

Nope. This is not how baked sweet potatoes are. No matter what tips or tricks you use (cornstarch oil, oil, etc.), baked sweet potatoes won’t be crispy like deep-fried sweet potatoes. These “fries” will not disappoint as long as they are understood before you go! They are so good that you will forget everything else once you have tried them.

MAKE IT A MEAL

This recipe makes enough for me to eat 2 servings and still be satisfied. But this is a perfect choice if you want something more substantial, such as grilled chicken breast or fried tofu. These fries are so delicious that you won’t be able to find anything else.

If you make a whole batch, you will have enough to drizzle over chicken or tofu. This is what I did because I had some chicken that needed cooking, and it was delicious. You can also make Cilantro-Lime Chicken, as you have cilantro and limes. Boom.
