1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

organicgirl baby romaine leaves for serving


1. cut sweet potatoes into 1/2 thick inch sticks or wedges and leave to soak in a bowl of cold water for half an hour to remove excess starch. this will allow the fries to become more crispy.

2. heat a skillet over medium heat and toast panko, stirring until evenly golden brown. the crumbs will continue to brown in the oven, but this will give them a nice head start. once brown remove from heat and stir in turmeric, salt and cayenne.

3. preheat oven to 400. coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

4.remove sweet potatoes from water and place on a kitchen towel to dry. once dry, return to a dry bowl and spray to lightly coat potatoes with oil spray. cornstarch into a shallow dish. break the eggs into another shallow dish and whisk.

6. working with a few a a time, coat potato strips first in cornstarch then egg and finally panko mixture before placing onto the prepared baking dish. do not crowd them.

7. bake for 20 to 30 minutes until potatoes are crispy, lightly brown and tender on the inside.

8. while the potatoes are baking, combine remaining ingredients in a blender and process into creamy dip. add a little water, if the dip is too thick.

9. line four paper charcuterie cones with organicgirl baby romaine leaves and fill with potato fries. serve with supergreen godess dip on the side.
