The perfect side to tonight's dinner - baked sweet potato fries with tahini dip... fast, healthy, and delicious! | Hungry by Nature

My love for sweet potatoes run deep. So deep that I ate sweet potato in some form every single day this week. And twice on Wednesday! Yep, I’m that girl.

But I also ate chocolate every single day. And peanut butter. It’s all about balance, right? RIGHT. It’s all about balance.

Ahh the wonderful sweet potato - how I love thee. I especially love making these into BAKED sweet potato fries. Don't forget the creamy tahini dip! | hungrybynature.com

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods. I’ve always been a potato person – any kind of potato, prepared in any way, and I’ll be there. My favorites include (but are obviously not limited to):

  1. Mashed potatoes. Every Thanksgiving, my uncle JC makes the BEST mashed potatoes and I am always there to be the official taste tester.
  2. Roasted red potatoes. Just a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper and those babes (and YOU) are golden.
  3. French fries. I mean how could I not put french fries on the list?! You can never go wrong. Also, curly fries. Just sayin.
  4. Potato skins. Obvs. Smothered in cheese, Greek yogurt, and scallions.
  5. The classic baked potato. A little melted butter and some Greek yogurt is all you need. Don’t forget to eat the skins!

I can go on; but I think you get the idea.

A creamy tahini dip is just what these baked sweet potato fries need! Make these tonight and serve with your summer BBQ. | hungrybynature.com

There is no shortage of ways that I consume potatoes, but the potatoes I prepare most often are sweet potatoes. In addition to being delicious, sweet potatoes are incredibly good for you; they are full of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), B6, C, D, iron, magnesium, fiber, and potassium.

In other words, they are healthy AF. Are you convinced yet??

A big plate of BAKED sweet potato fries is what's for dinner tonight! And don't forget the creamy tahini dip! | hungrybynature.com

These sweet potato fries hit all the sweet spots. They are baked and not fried, oven roasted and crispy, sprinkled with cumin for a little flaaaava, and dunked in a creamy tahini dip.

What is your favorite way to eat potatoes? Mine, hands-down, are baked sweet potato fries!

      Thanks Amylou! And I just checked out your insta… you might be more obsessed with sweet potatoes than I am! You are so sweet, thank you! As for photography, all I can say is practice. If you look at my pictures from the early recipes which was about a year ago, they were bad. You just need to keep practicing and find good light!
