Sweet Potato Fries with Basil-Salt and a Garlic Mayonnaise Aioli
4 to 6 servings
5 sweet potatoes, cut into about ½ to 1 inch thick, french fry cuts
extra virgin olive oil
2 TBS chopped fresh basil leaves
2 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
Aioli Dipping Sauce
¾ cup mayonnaise
1 medium/large clove garlic, minced
1 tbs fresh lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the sweet potato fries on foil or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over them and toss to lightly coat all fries. Bake until golden and fork-tender, about 35 to 45 minutes, depending on how thick the cuts are.
Meanwhile combine the basil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
Make aioli sauce in a small bowl by combining the mayonnaise, garlic, and lemon juice.
When the sweet potato fries come out of the oven, sprinkle with the basil salt, and toss around to distribute well.
Serve with aioli sauce for dipping.
