Spicy Cassava Fries with Garlic Sauce
Health Highlights


908 gm Cassava
1 tbsp Sea Salt
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
3/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Paprika
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 whole lime(s) Lime peel (zest)
2 clove(s) Garlic
1/3 cup Avocado oil
1 green onion (stem) Green onion
1/2 whole lime(s) Lime juice (fresh)
1/4 tsp Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp Red pepper flakes


For the fries:

Preheat oven to 450°F and cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Peel cassava with a vegetable peeler to remove the waxy skin. Cut in half crosswise to make it easier to manage, then slice in half length-wise. Cut into ¼-inch thick fry strips.

Place fries in a large pot, cover with cold water, and add the 1/2 tsp salt. Bring to a boil and cook 10-15 minutes, or until tender. Drain fries and place in a large bowl. Toss with oil until coated, then spread in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Roast 10-15 minutes, until beginning to brown, then flip and roast an additional 10-15 minutes. When they're crisped the way you like them, remove from oven and sprinkle with paprika, cayenne and lime zest. Serve immediately.

For the sauce:

Place garlic, avocado oil, green onion, lime juice, cumin seeds, red pepper flakes and remaining sea salt in a food processor and puree until smooth. Serve at room temperature and later store covered in the fridge.
