This weekend was filled with embracing the cool but sunny fall days, outside with friends and inside cozied up with a hot cup of tea. I bet I am not the only one who craves more comfort foods in the colder seasons, so I hope you'll like this easy recipe. Actually it depends if you like truffle or not. I for one love love love anything with truffle. Yesterday we bought this fresh truffle and paired it with handmade fresh pasta and a good bottle of red (speaking of comfort foods). As fresh truffle needs to be consumed quickly, today we thought of using up the sweet potatoes that we still had on hand.
And the outcome was decadent and delicious...
Ingredients for two:
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
1tbsp truffle oil
1 tbsp olive oil
pepper and fleur de sel to taste
cheese of your choice (optional)
Preheat your oven to approx. 200 degrees Celsius. In a large bowl, toss and coat the sweet potato fries with the oil and spices. You can use lots of other spices like paprika or cumin, especially if you only use truffle oil and not fresh truffle on top. Arrange your fries on a baking sheet and flip them once mid-way after about 10-15 minutes (depends on how thick you cut the fries, just keep an eye on them.)
When the fries are done, you can let them cool a little bit before garnishing with fresh truffle and/or cheese.
