I’m really excited about the Nutiva Organic Liquid Coconut Oil Garlic I used to make these Sweet Potato Fries with Tikka Masala Sauce! What I really like about this new coconut oil is that it stays liquid and is extracted from organic coconuts and has a neutral flavor. Unlike many non-organic coconut oils that utilize harsh chemical solvents such as hexane, Nutiva uses a certified organic process to remove the fats that remain solid at room temperature. It’s perfect in salads, sautéing, coffee, baking, and in smoothies!
I love roasting vegetables, especially sweet potatoes. Recently, to spice up my sweet potato fries a bit, I decided to make a rich creamy sauce to compliment my favorite roasted potato. I thought you might enjoy the recipe, so here it is. I hope you love it as much as I do!
Sweet Potato Fries with Tikka Masala Sauce
Time: 45 minutes
Sweet Potato Fries Ingredients
6 small sweet potatoes
2 Tbsp Nutiva Organic Liquid Garlic Coconut Oil
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/8 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
- Wash and cut sweet potatoes into fries, leaving the peel on
- Line a cookie sheet tray with parchment paper
- Toss fries with cool, sea salt, and pepper. Spread evenly on cookie sheet.
- Place in oven for 20 minutes. Toss
- Place in oven for an additional 20 minutes or until crisp. It won’t be super crispy. Be careful to watch for burning. Remove from oven when desired crispness is reached.
While sweet potatoes are roasting, make tikka masalas sauce
Tikka Masala Sauce Ingredients:
1 cup cashews, soaked overnight
1 ½ cups filtered water
1/3 cup frozen peas, thawed (optional)
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets (optional)
20 crimini mushrooms, cut into quarters (optional)
cooking spray, as needed
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, as needed
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp grated ginger
2 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground garam masala
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp Nutiva Organic Liquid Coconut Oil
½ onion, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp tomato paste
3 cardamom pods
1 dried arbol chile (can substitute with ½ tsp red pepper flakes)
filtered water or vegetable stock, as needed
1 14oz. can whole peeled tomatoes
1/3 cup cilantro (including stems), chopped
- Soak cashews in filtered water overnight in refrigerator.
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Remove peas from freezer and leave them out at room temperature to thaw.
- Wash and cut cauliflower into florets.
- Clean mushrooms and cut them into fourths.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat. Place the mushrooms and cauliflower on the baking sheet, spreading them evenly in one layer, and sprinkle with 1/8 tsp of salt (optional), and 1/8 tsp of freshly ground black pepper. Spray the vegetables quickly with cooking spray and place them in the oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, continue with the rest of the directions as follows.
- Drain and rinse the soaked cashews and place them in a blender with 1 ½ cups of filtered water.
- Make the cashew cream. Blend on high until it becomes a cream-like consistency. Set aside.
- Make the spice mixture. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, ginger, turmeric, garam masala, coriander, cumin, and ½ tsp sea salt. Stir to combine and set aside.
- Heat a large, 3-quart saucepot over medium heat. Add oil, wait 20 seconds, then add the onion, tomato paste, cardamom pods, and arbol chile until the tomato paste is darkened and the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. If the onions are not yet translucent but the bottom of the pan starts getting browned bits, add a little filtered water or vegetable stock to deglaze and scrape the bits that are sticking to the bottom of the pan. Make sure it doesn’t burn. Add about 2 Tbsp or more at a time.
- Add the spice mixture and stir well for 1 minute.
- Add the canned tomatoes and their juices and mash, break apart the whole tomatoes with your cooking utensil. I use a silicone spatula. Mix well and make sure to scrape any browned bits at the bottom of the saucepan.
- Add the cashew cream and mix.
- Add the cauliflower, mushrooms and cilantro, and mix.
- Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer, stirring often and scraping any browned bits until the sauce thickens for about 8-10 minutes.
- Place fries on a plate and pour sauce over and top with fresh cilantro. Serve immediately.
