- 2 medium japanese sweet potatoes
- 3 tbs neutral oil grape seed or avocado
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp smoked paprika
- ½ tsp cumin
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ cup fresh basil
- ⅓ cup mayo
- 2 tbsp buttermilk
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp rice vinegar or white vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 1-2 tsp water
Preheat your oven to 350°
Wash and dry your potato. You can peel it if you'd like, but I like to leave the skin on. Cut your potato vertically in half a couple of times and then cut them into sticks. Spread them out onto a sheet pan and drizzle with oil. Combine all your spices together in a small bowl and sprinkle it over the potatoes. Mix to combine everything. Spread your fries evenly onto the pan. Bake them for 20 minutes at 350° and then turn your oven up to 425° and bake for another 15 minutes. Be sure to toss them halfway through baking. Serve with basil ranch. Enjoy!
- This recipe works for any type of potato.
- If you don't have rice vinegar, you can alo use white or ACV.
- Baking the fries at two temperatures, makes them super crispy! Be sure to flip them over at the 20 minute mark.
- This basil ranch is also a delicious dressing for a salad! Just store it in the fridge for up to 1 week.
