Spicy Sweet Potato Fries and Avocado Dip

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes

Ingredients
For the fries:

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 sweet potatoes (1 pound)

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon cayenne

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon of dried oregano

1/8 teaspoon of dried thyme

Ground black pepper

Sea salt

For the dip:

1 avocado, peeled and pitted

1/4 cup (2.5 ounces) silken tofu

Juice from 1 lime

1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

Preparation
Peel and cut potatoes into half-inch fries. Soak the fries in a bowl filled with ice-cold water for 1-2 hours. This step removes starch from the potatoes, which helps them get nice and crispy.

Preheat oven to 450° F.

Rinse and towel dry the fries. Spread them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with olive oil to coat.

Combine the spices and herbs in a small bowl; sprinkle over fries.

Bake for 15 minutes.

In a food processor, combine avocado, tofu, lime juice, cilantro and seasonings; process until smooth.

Enjoy!
