Baked Cilantro + Feta Sweet Potato Fries
Okay, so before we talk about the food, lets talk about the background - Something a little different from my norm, and I am LOVING IT. With the help and advice of my sweet friend, Emma, I actually created and painted this background all by myself! Eeeek! I'm so proud of myself and plan on making more this week!!
Now to the food... If you know me, you know I can't get enough of all things cilantro + lime. I also Love sweet potatoes and think they are the best SAVORY! Don't get me wrong, I love a good sweet potato with cinnamon, but THIS is my favorite.
In this recipe I sneak in a favorite ingredient of mine that is so incredibly good for your health: Turmeric! Read the benefits of eating turmeric HERE. (you will be amazed and really should read it)
2 Small-Medium Organic Sweet Potatoes
1 1/2-2 TBSP Organic Olive Oil or Melted Coconut Oil
2 TBSP Chopped Organic Cilantro
1/2 Cup Organic Feta or Goat Cheese
1 TBSP Organic Turmeric
1 Organic Lime
Salt & Pepper to Taste
First, preheat your oven to 375. Next, peel and slice your sweet potatoes so that they look like fries! The thinner, the better (crispier). Toss them in a bowl with the oil, salt & pepper, turmeric and HALF of your chosen cheese. Once your fries are completely covered, place them evenly on to a baking sheet. The more spread out they are, the better they will cook! Put those in your oven for about 25-30 minutes. Once those are done, plate them and top with your lime juice, cilantro and remaining cheese!!
So simple. So delicious. I am in love.
