Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Roasted Red Pepper Dip

You need very high heat to make these fries crispy!


1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. dried Italian herb seasoning


8 ounces fat free cream cheese
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
4 garlic cloves
1/2 cup roasted red peppers
2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette
salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil coated with cooking spray.  I cut the sweet potatoes into strips (you can do wedges too) and soaked them in water for 15 minutes to remove some of the starch. I put them in a bowl and coated them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and spices, turning them over to evenly coat on all sides with oil and spices.

I then spread the sweet potato strips out onto the baking sheet in a single layer.  Bake for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes with spatula. Serve warm.


Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender until everything is blended well. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
