Sweet Potato & Carrot Curry-Cumin Fries
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into wedges or fries
2-3 carrots, peeled and sliced into wedges or fries
2 Tbs. coconut oil (enough to coat sw. potatoes + carrots)
1 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. cumin
Sea salt + fresh ground pepper
Preheat oven to 425°. Wash, peel and cut sweet potatoes + carrots into the desired shape of your choice. You can cut them into wedges or long fries or even cubes for a roasted side dish. Toss the carrots and sw. potatoes in a big bowl with melted coconut oil (enough to coat both veggies) + curry powder + cumin. Grind a bit of sea salt and pepper to taste. Toss again. Lay them all out on a big baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through. Once I cook them for half an hour, I like to broil the tops on low for a couple of minutes to give them some crisp, just watch ’em so they don’t burn! These are awesome and always a crowd pleaser. Give them a go.
Fun Nutrition Stuff
Carrots and sweet potatoes contain Vitamin A, which is important in skin and eye health, in immunity boosting and warding off infections. They are also both rich in the mineral potassium, which is good for the heart, helps control blood pressure, carries oxygen to the brain and may even prevent kidney stones. Eat up and enjoy!

Hey! It was a pleasure to meet you today at the the Pass It On sale. If you’d like to ever get together for coffee/tea, exchange recipes…whatever. You have my email. I’d also like to connect you to my cousin who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year at 39 and is going through her own “epiphany.” She decided to write a blog about getting the toxins out of her home….http://localorganicmalarkey.blogspot.com/ I’m going to send her yours as well. I think she’d love to have another person with a similar experience to help her through some of these changes. Cheers!
It was so nice meeting you, Michelle. Great talk! I would love to get coffee/tea with you. Let’s make this happen. Thanks for the connection. I will check out her blog right now. Love that you wrote cheers, I do it all. the. time. (it’s ’cause I’m a wannabe European 😉 ) -Rama
