I found this recipe in the NYT Health section and decided to give it a try...It turned out very good. It's Gluten-Free and very good for you. If you're dairy-free and want to try the chili-cilantro sour cream try using a plain hummus or plain coconut yogurt or vegan sour cream as substitute.



The Food 52 Cookbook's
Southwestern Spiced Sweet Potato Fries With Chili-Cilantro Sour Cream

Sweet potato french fries will surprise everyone at your holiday table and no one will miss the marshmallows. The potatoes are baked, not fried, so no need to feel guilty. Chili powder, cumin, cayenne and paprika complement the natural sweetness of the potatoes. It's probably a good idea to double this recipe, because they go fast

For the Potato Fries:
2 large sweet potatoes, cut in matchsticks/batons, approximately 1/4 inch by 2 inches (no need to peel)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

For the Chili-Cilantro Sour Cream:
1 cup sour cream (for Dairy-Free, try plain hummus, coconut yogurt or vegan sour cream)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons sweet chili sauce
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 heaping tablespoon chopped cilantro

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Toss the sweet potatoes and olive oil in a large bowl.
2. Combine the salt, cumin, chili powder, paprika, pepper and cayenne in a small bowl. Add to the potatoes and toss to coat. (This is a lot of seasoning, I used about half of this combination and it was still "spicy".)
3. Arrange the potatoes in one layer on a large baking sheet. Bake on the lowest rack of the oven until the undersides are browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Turn the potatoes with a spatula and bake for 10 more minutes.
4. While the potatoes are cooking, make the sour cream sauce. Combine all the ingredients except the cilantro in a medium bowl and whisk together. Stir in the cilantro.
5. Remove the potatoes from the oven and cool for a few minutes. Serve with the sour cream.
Yield: 6 servings.
