Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

Posted by Marie on Apr 23, 2014

I had a hankering for a veggie burger, so headed to one of my favourite food trucks, Kaboom Box, to get myself one.  To serve with it I made these simple, tasty, crispy sweet potato fries.  You could serve these highly addictive fries with any sandwich you like.

2 lb (900 g) sweet potatoes
4 Tbsp (60 ml) olive oil
1 Tbsp (15 ml) Cajun seasoning
Big pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C).

Peel the potatoes.  Cut them into french fry like pieces.

In a large bowl combine the olive oil, Cajun seasoning and salt.  Add the potatoes and toss until they are coated.  Spread the potatoes onto a large baking sheet.  Pop into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Turn the potatoes and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until they are browned and tender.  Serve with lots of ketchup.

Vegetarian Croque Monsieur

Posted by Marie on Apr 17, 2014
Classic croque monsieur is typically made with ham and cheese, and can be found in almost any bistro in France.  I have come across recipes where it’s grilled only, or made using toasted bread topped with béchamel sauce and baked.  However, I like to combine both techniques; you get the deliciousness of grilled buttered bread, […] MORE»

Roasted Potato & Asparagus with Browned Butter

Asparagus drizzled with browned butter, delicious all on its own, but this recipe, with the addition of crispy, roasted potatoes, almonds and smoked paprika takes them to a whole new level.  Serve this delicious vegetable dish with a nice dry vermentino.  Follow it with a Cauliflower, Cheese & Parsley Omelette.
