Sweet Potato Fries:
- Peel sweet potatoes and cut lengthwise into ¼ inch (0.6 cm) thick matchsticks.
- Add 1 Tbsp of cornstarch to a plastic bag and toss in the sweet potatoes. Potatoes should be lightly, evenly coated in cornstarch (add more cornstarch as necessary).
- Lay potatoes on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Toss the potatoes around to evenly coat each with oil, then arrange fries so that none are touching and each has plenty of room to breathe and let out moisture (you may need to use 2 pans).
- Bake fries at 425 degrees F (232 C) for 20 minutes. Remove, flip the fries, rotate the pan, and cook for another 20 minutes, or until fries have begun to brown.
- Turn off oven and slightly prop open the door. Allow fries to crisp for 15 more minutes.
- (Make this while the taters cook!) In a food processor, mix avocado, lime juice, garlic, parsley, and jalapeno until smooth.
- Add Greek yogurt and continue to mix until smooth.
- If desired, add a dash of milk to thin the sauce to a texture of your liking.
- Add a pinch of salt and pepper to suit your taste.
