Baby, it’s cold outside! Winter time means comport food time. Time to cozy up to a fire at your local pub (or at home) with a pint and some warm hearty food. You can recreate your favorite pub food recipes with a clean, whole food, Paleo twist. Just a few easy substitutions, a bit of creativity, and . . . Bob’s your uncle. We are starting our Paleo Pub Crawl series with these yummy garlic fries, made with sweet potatoes, which are more nutritious and easier on your blood sugar than regular potatoes. This is an EXCELLENT accompaniment to our Paleo Pub Burger, coming up next.
2 large sweet potatoes, cut into large wedges
2 tablespoons bacon fat or coconut oil, meltedSea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, or more or less, to taste (optional)
2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, roughly chopped
4 – 6 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Cut the sweet potatoes into uniform large wedges, then toss with the melted fat, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper, until the wedges are evenly coated.
- Spread the wedges in a single layer on a cookie sheet. (If they are too crowded, they might get a bit soggy.)
- Bake for 30-40 minutes, turning a few times during baking, until the wedges are done and slightly crispy.
- While the wedges are baking, mix together the chopped parsley, minced garlic, and olive oil.
- Once the wedges are out of the oven, toss them with the garlic mixture and serve while hot.
