1 teaspoon black pepper

CRISPY WHITE SWEET POTATO FRIES

INGREDIENTS:
(serves 2)
3 medium white sweet potatoes (you can use yams too, if you’d like)
2 Tablespoons tapioca starch (or you can use another kind of starch, like potato starch)
4 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 or 2 teaspoons flaked or coarse sea salt (fine sea salt works great too, but I prefer the larger flakes on fries)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
2. Lightly grease a foil-lined baking sheet with oil.
3. Peel and then cut sweet potatoes into medium thick fries (not steak fries or shoestring, but somewhere in between).
3. Place starch into a large ziplock bag.
4. Dump sweet potatoes into the bag with the starch, zip it closed, and  toss to coat.
5. Pour coated fries onto the baking sheet.
6. Drizzle melted coconut oil and minced garlic over fries, and toss with your hands.
7. Rearrange the fries on the baking sheet so they are in a single layer and not crowded. (You may need to use an extra baking sheet to achieve this.)
8. Sprinkle with sea salt and smoked paprika.
9. Place the fries in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, turning once halfway through. If using 2 baking sheets, make sure you also alternate the baking sheets halfway through as well.
10. When finished baking, allow to slightly cool before enjoying.
