Fried Tomato Sarnie & Smokey Sweet Potato Frites


This meal checks all the boxes – sweet, savoury and garlicy!

I bought a couple big tomatoes this week, which I don’t usually do. Perhaps my body was craving antioxidants, vitamin C and potassium?

Smokey Sweet Potato Frites

  • 1-2 sweet potatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp garlic salt
  • 1tbsp paprika
  • oil for coating

Peel and cut the sweet potato fries into desired shape. You’ll want to keep them relatively skinny so they don’t take forever to cook. Then throw them into a bowl with all of the ingredients. Use the oil to help dress the fries. Put a little bit of oil onto a baking sheet and then throw these bad boys in the oven at about 200 degrees celsius. They should take about 20 mins, depending on thickness. You could also shallow fry them in a frying pan.

Fried Tomato Sarnie:

  • Thick chunk of tomato (like an inch)
  • oil for frying
  • tbsp each of polenta (or corn flour) and gluten free baking mix
  • salt and pepper

Simply coat the tomato in the flours and S&P. If you want your tomato to be crunchy, use an unripened one. The tomato in the pic was slightly too ripe, so it exploded a little when I took a bite.

Heat the oil in a frying pan – you want this to be super hot. Fry the tomato until it is slightly brown and crispy.

Serve with guacamole, sweet chili sauce, mayo or what ever sauce you love!
