Clean Eating Turkey Taco Loaded Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potatoes fries – I can’t think of any other food in the world that I love as much as them. Ok, not completely true not true at all, I can think of approximately a hundred other things that I love just as much but still! They are very, very high on my list. And yet, it’s the first time I’m posting a sweet potato fries’ recipe on this website of mine and I’m like “HOW ON EARTH IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?!” ???

I’ve got plenty of sweet potato recipes for sure (proof here), but nothing for these perfect, crunchy oven-baked sweet potatoes fries that make my heart sing. And that is weird. Because let me tell you friends, there was a time when we ate SPF at least once a week, until Solal put a stop to it. Now it’s only about once a month but the love is still going strong and this new recipe just strengthened it…
  • Sweet Potato Fries
  • 1.7 lbs / 800 g sweet potatoes about 4 small or 2 medium – Tip: small + non-curvy sweet potatoes are easier to cut into fries
  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Taco Meat
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 small garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 onion white or yellow, chopped
  • 1/2 lb / 250 g ground turkey you can also use extra lean ground beef or chicken
  • 1/8 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • Salsa
  • 2 heaped cup chopped lettuce I used iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 avocado chopped
  • 1 scallion white + green parts, chopped (use two if they are small)
  • Tahini sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp tahini (ground sesame seeds)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • sea salt to taste

  1. Sweet Potato Fries
  2. Preheat oven to 220C / 430F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Brush the sweet potatoes under cold water to clean them, but keep the skin on. Pat them dry.
  4. If your potatoes are long, cut them in half crosswise. Then, slice them into planks lengthwise. Rotate the planks and slice them into sticks (if this is confusing, check this video).
  5. Place the sweet potato sticks in a large bowl. Add olive oil, sweet paprika and sea salt. Toss with your hands until all the sweet potatoes are well covered.
  6. Arrange sweet potato sticks on prepared baking sheet in a single layer, making sure they don't touch (they can be close, but make sure they don't overlap). You don't want them to steam. This is key for crispy and delicious sweet potato fries.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until they start to golden, then flip them using a spatula. Bake for another 7 to 10 minutes. All ovens are different so keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn. If the fries start to burn on the sides but are not quite ready yet, reduce the oven temperature to 200C/400F.
  8. Remove from the oven and serve (the other ingredients will be ready by the time they are cooked).
  9. Taco Meat
  10. While the sweet potatoes are baking, prepare the meat. Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. When hot, add garlic and onion and cook until onion are translucent and garlic fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add turkey, chili powder, cumin and season lightly with salt. Cook just until no longer pink on the outside, but not fully cooked, breaking down the meat with the side of a wooden spoon as it cooks. Add tomato paste and chicken broth. Stir and cook until liquid reduces and meat is cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, set aside and cover with a lid to keep warm.
  11. Salsa
  12. Prepare and chop all the salsa ingredients. In a large bow, combine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, avocado and scallion together. Set aside.
  13. Tahini sauce
  14. In a small bow, combine tahini, water, lemon juice and garlic powder with a spoon until smooth. Season with sea salt to taste.
  15. Putting everything together!
  16. Divide the sweet potato fries into three plates. Top with turkey, then salsa and drizzle with tahini sauce. Serve immediately.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
