Yam Fries with Chipotle Aioli

6 Jan


Will and I have been trying for the longest time to figure out how to make crispy yam fries in the oven, and after much trial and error, we’ve finally done it! I made two versions of fries, one is regular salted, the other is cajun spiced! Hope you enjoy!

Yam Fries Ingredients:

1-2 Yams


Olive Oil

Sea Salt OR Cajun Spice

Parchment Paper

Chipotle Aioli Ingredients:

1 Cup Vegan Mayonnaise

2 Chipotle Chiles in Adobe

2 Tbsp Lime Juice

Cajun Spice Ingredients:

1 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Black Pepper

1 1/4 tsp Paprika

1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper

3/4 tsp Dried Oregano

3/4 tsp dried Thyme

(Just mix all ingredients in a bowl to make cajun spice!)


Preheat oven to 450F. ┬áLine two baking sheets with parchment paper. Peel and cut your yams into 1/2″ fry shapes. Wash yams in strainer, then dry throughly.


Put all your cut into a plastic bag, and sprinkle enough cornstarch on the fries that they get evenly coated.


Place yams in a large bowl, drizzle a generous amount of olive oil on top, and mix until all fries are coated. Add either sea salt or cajun spice, and mix well.

Place on baking sheets in a single layer, making sure none of the fries are touching each other. (They are really sticky with the cornstarch!)


Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until underside is golden brown. Using tongs, flip each fry (very gently,) and bake for another 10 minutes.

To make Aioli, combine all ingredients in a blender, or magic bullet, and blend until smooth.
