Sweet Potato Fries with a Lemon Butter Sauce

I’m just going to leave this here.

Lemon butter sauce

There’s not much that I love more than sweet potatoes, they are so versatile! I usually enjoy them sweet in a yogurt bowl with peanut butter, don’t knock it until you try it, but today we’re enjoying sweet potato fries with a lemon butter sauce. Like come on, could anything be better?!

Lemon butter sauce

Lemon Butter Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2-4tbsps fresh lemon juice, divided
  • Six large fresh basil leafs
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Extra chopped basil for topping

Instructions:

  • Cook your sweet potatoes fries either in the oven or air fryer. I loveee my air fryer!
  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. When it begins to brown, lower the heat and add the garlic and whole basil leaves. Sauté for about a minute until fragrant. Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Stir and remove from the heat.
  • You can either add the cooked sweet potatoes fries to the skillet and toss to coat, or you can transfer the potatoes to a plate and drizzle the sauce over them. Sprinkle the coated potatoes with the remaining basil and squeeze more lemon over the potatoes.
