Sweet Potato Fries with Lemon Herb Tahini Dipping Sauce

Sweet potatoes don't contain the same starch level as regular spuds, so they don't get as crispy as fries that are made from traditional russet potatoes. Despite that, these sweet potato fries are still absolutely delicious and cooking them on a baking rack helps to get them a little more crispy without a ton of oil.

These oven roasted sweet potato fries are delicious, but the icing on the cake is the lemon herb tahini dipping sauce that goes along with them.

This tahini sauce is garlicky, full of fresh herbs, and the perfect pairing for the sweetness of the fries. Lemon herb tahini may seem like an unconventional pairing that you might not expect, but just trust me on this one. It's so good.

Plus, the dipping sauce also doubles as the perfect salad dressing or as a  dip for veggies, chicken, or beef. Feel free to drizzle it over your favorite salads or roasted veggies for even more flavor.

  • 2 large garnet sweet potatoes

  • sea salt 
  • fresh parsley for garnish 

Method: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes into evenly sized fries. There's no need to peel the potatoes, but if you're not a fan of sweet potato skin, feel free to give the potatoes a peel before cutting them.
  3. Toss the sweet potatoes in oil and then place them on a baking rack that has been placed on a baking sheet. Be sure not to overcrowd the pan, you want there to room in between each potato. 
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the potatoes are tender, and the edges have begun to crisp. 
  5. Remove the pies from the pan and toss with sea salt and fresh parsley for garnish.
