Crispy Sweet Potato Fries & Vegan Mayonnaise

by - 09:54

Have you ever asked yourself, how the sweet potato fries in all places get so crispy? Everytime i tried to make some at home they just turned really soft in the oven. So obviously i thought they must be fried instead, which i absolutely not wanted to do. 
Nevertheless there are several tricks, which i have now collected, to make Sweet Potato Fries crispy in the oven, with a minimum of Oil. 
Anyhow the vegan mayonnaise i served it with, is kind of pure oil, making up for the non-fried fries.

 Level: EASY
What you need:
TIME: 2h // TOOLS: Blender
1 Big Sweet Potato
3 Tsp Corn Starch
Smoked Pepper Powder
2 tsp neutral Oil
3 dl Rapeseed Oil
1 dl Soymilk
2 tsp white wine vinegar
2 Tbsp Aquafaba (Chickpea water)

1. Peel your Sweet Potato and cut into approximately 1cm thick pieces.
2. Put them in a bowl of cold water for 1h in the fridge. This sounds super weird, but it helps the starch inside the potato to come out, which is important for the crispiness. 
3. Remove the water from the Bowl and add 2tsp of neutral Oil and the Corn Starch. Stirr well so the starch covers all fries. Now add your smoked pepper seasoning. DO NOT add Salt. This will be done before serving at the end. 
4. Now spread your fries on a baking sheet, leaving each single and seperate. 
5. Preheat your oven to 170°c and bake for around 30min or until crispy. My oven does not spread the heat equally, so i always have to check in between. 
While your fries are in the oven, you can prepare
Did you know that making mayonnaise is one of the most simple things ever. You need only a few ingredients and a blender.
1. Start with adding half of the Oil into a Blender with the Chickpea water and Soymilk. Add the vinegar and Salt as well.
2. Now blend until the mass turns slightly yellow and the oil is dissolved within the milk.
3. Add on the rest of the Oil and continue blending until creamy. If the Mayonnaise is too liquid, add more oil. 
Take out the Fries from the Oven and salt them slightly. Then dip into your Mayo and enjoy.
