Sweet Potato Fries with Tamari Cashew Dip | Reclaiming Yesterday

[I made these crave-worthy Sweet Potato Fries with Tamari Cashew Dip for Earth Fare!]

I’m not sure that I’ve ever met anyone who didn’t have positive feelings towards sweet potatoes. 

I mean what’s not to love, really? 

But sometimes I do get a little carried away with them. I just can’t help it—they’re so healthy (full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals) plus they’re so versatile (I’ve yet to find something sweet potato doesn’t pair well with). 

When K says, “Oh, are we having sweet potatoes again?” I can tell I’ve had them on repeat a little too often. 

But even K, who is not a 100% die hard sweet potato fanatic, CANNOT physically walk by a tray of just-roasted sweet potato fries without clearing them out. 

Sweet potato fries are just too good for anyone to resist.

Could a tray of hot sweet potato fries get any better, you ask? Sweet. Salty. Steamy in the middle and glistening with oil (plus those little crunchy bits on the edges where the natural sugars caramelized a bit ðŸ’–).

You may have to stretch your imagination a little, but I’m here to tell you they CAN get even better. 

How?? (I can practically hear you asking!)

By dunking those hot, sweet, salty, glistening sweet potato fries right into this Tamari Cashew Dip.

This dip is the bomb dot com, y’all.

When you soak cashews for a bit, they soften up and can be blended into creamy perfection. I’ve done it before with these Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cashew Curry Dip (a HUGE hit). And we’re doing it again with another flavor profile—because—why the hell wouldn’t we?? ðŸ˜€

The cashews make up the creamy base for this dip, which then gets flavored with garlic, toasted sesame oil, and tamari. 

(Tamari is soy sauce that’s made without wheat, so it’s gluten free). 

The topic of soy is tricky. Generally, most of us eat way too much soy because it goes into so many processed foods. And the bad news is 95%+ of that soy is GMO and heavily sprayed with pesticides. If you’re good about avoiding processed foods (and you can tolerate soy) I think a little bit of organic soy is ok, and can even be beneficial (especially if it’s fermented) 

If you can’t eat soy, Coconut Aminos are a great substitute. 

But back to this dip!! It’s umami flavors pair perfectly with the sweet potato fries (what did I say about SP going well with everything!). 

And if you have any of the tamari cashew dip leftover, I’d highly recommend using it as a sauce to smother over zoodles (or anything, really). I had some leftover, so the next day I spiralized a zucchini, sauteed some chicken and mushrooms, and then tossed it all around in the tamari cashew dip (turned sauce).
