When it comes to vegan comfort food, it doesn’t get sweeter than sweet potato fries.
Not only are they hearty and deeply satisfying, sweet potatoes are rich sources of beta-carotene (more than leafy green vegetables, even), which the body converts into vitamin A. Studies show a little healthy fat goes a long way toward unlocking this superfood’s nutrients, so we picked a recipe that matches sweet potato fries with an avocado dip.
The recipe recommends seasoning the fries with paprika, sea salt, cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne, but we throw in whatever we’re feeling—onion powder, cumin, chili powder—for added warmth and flavor. While the fries bake, we whip up the avocado, garlic and vegan mayo into a creamy aioli. “This aioli is dangerously addictive,” warns Sherrie Castellano, who shares the recipe on cooking blog With Food + Love. “It makes enough for two batches of fries, so if you only make one batch you'll have plenty leftover.”
