Today's Dorm Room Lunch: Sweet Potato Sandwich

One of my favorite sandwiches in the world is the sweet potato sandwich at Crema Cafe in Harvard Square. It has roasted sweet potato, slices of granny smith apple, sprouts and whole grain mustard on toasted bread. It's pretty fabulous.

The other night I made some baked sweet potato fries with some spicy mayo to dip them in. I used the leftovers to make this tasty, tasty sandwich with the sweet potato, the spicy mayo, some crunchy lettuce and some chopped green onion on toasted whole grain bread. Yum.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

An incredible simple, healthy dish that only takes a few minutes of involved preparation. A tasty side for your dinner, or a delicious stuffer in your sandwich! I serve these with a dip of mayo, Sriracha sauce (or any hot sauce) and chopped green onions. They're delicious with honey mustard as well. You could get creative and season them with fresh herbs or spices before baking them as well. 

-4 medium sweet potatoes
-3 T. olive oil
-salt and pepper

-Preheat an oven to 450. 

-Cut sweet potatoes length wise into 8 segments each. 

-Mix with olive and season with salt and pepper.

-Arrange in a single layer on a sheet pan and place in oven. 

-Allow to bake until cooked through and browned nicely on top, 30-45 minutes. Serve at once.
