spicy sweet potato snack
The combination of Cajun seasoning and coconut water powder makes these fries so irresistibly delectable, they don’t even need a dipping sauce!
2 tsp Cajun Spice Seasoning
2 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Coconut Water Powder
2 pounds Sweet Potatoes
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil, melted
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix the Cajun spice seasoning and coconut water powder together, taking care to break up any clumps. Set aside.
Cut the sweet potatoes into small fry-size wedges. Transfer to a large bowl, and toss with coconut oil, as well as a little salt and pepper. Spread out onto 2 baking sheets in flat layer. Roast for 15 minutes, flip the fries with a spatula, and roast for 10-15 minutes longer, or until the fries are cooked through and the surface of the sweet potatoes has begun to caramelize.
Remove the fries from the oven. Use a spoon to scoop up a bit of the spice mixture, and tap it over the fries to dust them lightly with the spices. -- see chef's note below on dusting. Toss the fries and repeat to desired level of seasoning. Serve warm.
The coconut water cannot be simply “tossed on” and then mixed – it will stick together in clumps. It is important to keep a light hand to dust the fries evenly to achieve the subtle flavor effect.
