Baked Cajun Sweet Potato Fries

1 Mar

You’ll need:

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • large bowl
  • ice cubes
  • cold water
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • cajun seasoning

For THE SAUCE:

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375*F
  2. Cut the tip of your sweet potatoes so that it will stand up straight; I do this to make slicing sweet potatoes easier. This way it won’t roll around under your knife. 
  3. Next, when your sweet potato has been sliced, place the fries in a large bowl of water and ice for about a half hour to an hour to remove some of the starch. This will help to make the fries softer on the inside!
  4. After the fries have soaked, place them in a tupper ware or a large plastic bag with olive oil, and shake them around until coated. Finally, place them on a baking tray, cover with cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper, and bake for about 30 minutes.
  5. Then Enjoy! Try this with Jamie’s Avacado-Lime Aoili sauce, so good!

13 Oct Image In Progress...

You never knew your popcorn could get so jazzy… until now.

You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • Splash of Olive Oil/Canola Oil
  • 2tsp salt

For THE SAUCE:

  • 4 Tbs butter/margarine
  • 3 Tbs honey
  • 2 Tbs Cinnamon Sugar (or… 4 tsp sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon)

Let’s Begin:

  • Put your kernels in a pot (non-stick is best) with a splash of oil
  • Heat it up to Medium-High
  • After the pop-interval falls to 3 seconds, take the popcorn off the stove
  • Take your butter and honey and microwave it for about 30 seconds, so that the butter is melted
  • Stir the two nicely
  • Pour it all over the popcorn, and toss it a bit
  • Dash your cinnamon sugar all over the popcorn, and toss it some more
  • Add that salt and toss it one more time.
  • Put it in your mouth. Share it if you want to make friends. Put it in front of the TV if you want to get a movie started.
