Coconut Sweet Potato Fries

This meal was insanely good.  I went to hang and cook with my awesome friend Kelly who I hadn't seen or cooked with in far too long and we began with the ever so magic coconut oil.  This meal consisted of bacon wrapped pork loin and parsley mushrooms and then the coconut sweet potato fries!  Throughout the night we gossiped and watched Harry Potter...honestly I couldn't want much more for a Monday night after five days in L.A. and traveling.  I hadn't cooked with coconut oil until this meal and wow I really have been missing out.  So here is the ever so successful Coconut Sweet Potato Fries recipe created by Kelly and I

Serves 2

The Ingredients
1 large sweet potato, peeled and sliced into fry sticks
1/4 cup coconut oil, heated so it is liquid form
1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 medium yellow onion, chopped
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

The Process
1.  Turn oven on to 425 degrees.  In large bowl mix together all of the above ingredients.

2.  Lay fries flat on a foil covered baking sheet.  Put in oven for 10 minutes, then flip fries and bake for another 10 minutes or until tender.

3.  When fries are tender turn oven to broil to crisp up the fries, broil until preferred crispness is achieved (about 5 minutes for us).

These fries were seriously perfect with the sweetness of the potato that mixed so well with the coconut, a little kick from the paprika and the freshness from the parsley....perfect combo.
