Lemongrass Sweet Potato Fries with Wasabi Mayo

Sweet Potato FriesIt may be very cliché to say this but, 'When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.' I find this quote applicable in all aspects of life. Cooking is no exception. I wanted to make sweet potato fries to go with our dinner. I remembered trying sweet potatoes with truffle oil and served with a wasabi mayo. To me the truffle oil was a bit much, it's a personal preference but I don't think truffle oil should exist. A little drop is way too strong! It's just not natural! However, truffle salt is amazing. I reach in the cupboard and realize that it is all gone. Heart quickly sinks but I press on. I start perusing through my sea of spices and run by the lemongrass. Thinking that it would pair great with the sweet potato fries we gave it a whirl. The lemongrass with the wasabi mayo was awesome! I hope you like them!

Mix all ingredients in a bowl so the fries are completely coated. Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes. Depending on your size of fry they may need a little more or less time so make sure you check.
