What a night I’ve had. Angelina and I were up very very early today. 3:15am to be exact! And she didn’t want to go back to bed until 6:45am where she then woke up a little over an hour later. Needless to say she is passed out for now. But obviously now I’m wide awake so I’m lying in bed writing to you.
Big news in my world is I am finally back to black again and I am so happy! Every time I venture out and return back I always wonder what the heck was I thinking! There’s nothing like shiny black hair. I swear once I was done, I looked like I got a hair treatment, cut, style… The works! But really I just did it in my washroom with the door closed. Really truly enjoying silence. Trust me, that was the perfect spa time for me! Total ultimate relaxation.
Now let’s get to the food!!!! Yesterday a girlfriend came to visit and I got to try this recipe for a third time and it was a hit again! She loved it. So obviously I have to share! If I haven’t convinced you already to buy a Spiralizer, you will after today.
You can do anything with these fries. You can eat a bowl just like that and not feel guilty because it’s actually good for you. You can throw it on a salad (this is my new thing, it adds an amazing crunch and flavor) or the hubby likes to add it on top of a chicken breast at dinner or in a burger or sandwich. Doesn’t that all sound delish?!?! The possibilities are endless!!! Hope you love it as much as we do!
Baked Cajun Shoestring Sweet Potatoe Fries
1 large sweet potatoe
2 tbsp olive oil
Celtic sea salt to taste
Cajun seasoning to taste OR Piri Piri Seasoning
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2) Spiralize the sweet potatoe. The key to make this easy, make sure you have suctioned all four legs to the counter before starting. You can keep the skin on or off. I took mine off.
3) In a bowl mix together your spiralized sweet potato, olive oil, Celtic sea salt and whatever seasoning your heart desires. I have tried both Cajun and Piri Piri and absolutely LOVE both!
4) Spread out on a baking sheet and cook in the oven for 25 mins. Make sure you do not overlap any pieces, as it will not cook properly.
Be sure to WATCH YOUR OVEN during baking, because these puppies can burn. Timing can vary between ovens. Now every time I have made this, there are some pieces that burn. But don’t get thrown off, that is okay. Mine has never tasted burnt! It just adds some extra crunch.
Lastly, when you do take it out of the oven it may not be completely crispy all the way but once you leave it out to cool it should crisp up more!
