Currently Loving:

Adele's newest album. If I wasn't pursuing a career in food, I would try out to be her back up singer. I'm already practicing in the car as it's always smart to have a plan B.

Perusing recipe ideas on Pinterest (Introduction to this organizational wonderland from my sister in law whose offspring can also fall on this list).

Positive, encouraging emails from you party people. I appreciate letters/emails so so much.

Dried beans from Rancho Gordo. Most specifically the Runner Cannellini Beans. Big, creamy, pillowy white beans. Never thought I would be so particular that I would be mail ordering beans, but, here I am.

The last Meyer lemons from my parents tree. Homemade Apricot Jam. Puffins Cereal. Lessons learned. Love.


Because I want to offer more meal ideas, I will point you over to Lovely Morning for these fabulous looking veggie burgers. That tasty recipe and some of these baked fries and you've got yourself a filling and tasty dinner!

Inspired by Veggie Belly via Pinterest

Because I know you are thinking what I thought, "will this work with yams/sweet potatoes?". I tried it. They have a higher water content than a russet, so they don't quite crisp up like russet. I still ate them, of course, but comparatively, they need a few minutes longer in the oven and were still a tad soggy in texture. Tasty? Yes. Crispy pomme frite? No.

1 Russet Potato (about 10 oz.)
1 Tbsp. Melted Coconut Oil or Ghee
Heaping 1/2 tsp. Curry Powder
Few generous pinches of Salt

Cucumber Dip
1/3 Cup Seeded and Finely Diced Cucumber
1 Tbsp. Chopped Mint
1 Tbsp. Chopped Parsley
1/2 Cup Whole or Lowfat Greek Yogurt
Salt + Pepper to tasteundefinedundefined

Preheat the oven to 415'

1. Using a mandoline or sharp knife, cut the potato into 1/8'' slices, lengthwise. Pat them dry with a dishtowel or paper towel. Layer up like-size pieces, and cut them into small matchsticks, more narrow than a ballpoint pen.
2. Toss the matchsticks gently with the curry mix. Matchsticks should be coated, but not soggy. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment and put lay as many as you can in a single layer, this will have to be done in shifts. Sprinkle with a few pinches of salt. Bake them on the middle rack for 10-14 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. Watch them closely, you want them to have some brown spots, but not turn to charcoal. Mine were super thin, so they got a bit charred.
3. While they bake, mix the diced cucumber, both herbs, yogurt and a pinch of salt and pepper together and set aside.
4. Eat them hot from the oven with the yogurt dip. You can use the same parchment for the second round, or prepare a second baking tray and put it in as soon as the first batch is done. Repeat process of spreading them out in a single layer with a few pinches of salt on top.undefined

Ooh! Love the idea of curry in pomme frites!

All my favourite things together! Mhmmmmmm. Your photos are still so so amazing.

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJoy

I am just listening to Adele as I'm writing this! Isn't she amazing?! But so are these fries, I think you've definitely made the right career choice Sara ;-)

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMaria @ Scandifoodie

Wow this looks so delicious!

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSally

yum! i also just bought adele's newest album and have been listening to it to and from work in the car all this week! i keep telling people that if i could sing, i would want to sound just like her.

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterandrea

Sara! This is making my mouth water :) I can taste the spicy with the cool right now! Happy to have a recipe for some cucumbers in our garden! And Adele - she rocks. I think I've been listening to her almost everyday. What an amazing voice!

YUM. This is insanity! So simple, yet such robust flavors. Thank you, Sara! :)

Those look amazing. I just made some sweet potato fries with aoili to go with my burgers last night. Next time I'll give these a try.

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLindsey

Mmm, these look like my favorite pommes frites at Barbette, in Minneapolis, now 1600 miles away. Nostalgia just might be mine... cucumber dip looks great, like a tzatziki without the garlic surge? Thanks for the ideas!

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNiki (of SI)

I imagine the curry gives these little pommes a wonderful punch- thanks for the recipe and link!

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbianca

Wow, I bet these are delicious! Must make soon.

June 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertea_austen

Yum! I love the idea of curry fries! And the sauce is great... you gotta have a great sauce with fries.

June 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKatie@Cozydelicious

yum!! beautiful, rustic and elegant photos. P.S. i've been craving boxed cereal lately too, for some reason. Puffins = classic.

June 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

This is my kind of snack! Thanks for the inspiration! Keep the great recipes coming! I look forward to the great work you produce!

June 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

Somehow the fact that you sliced the potato mandolin thin makes me feel this is perfect for a summer snack.

I absolutely love the Indian theme on this from the curry spice to the cucumber dip.

June 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVal

Wonderful! I'm in love. WITH FRIES.

June 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBev Weidner

I think you've just out done yourself. Bravo!

I'm crazy for anything and everything curry. I often feel like curry is more of a winter thing for me, but this recipe sounds so perfect for a summer day. I've made tzatziki style sauce for my lunch salads and have really enjoyed it, so this is a dish for my taste in many ways! Happy last week of June!

June 27, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertiina

Yum!! I love keeping up with you and your beautiful posts :) I hope the book is going well!! xoxo

June 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLeah

You've inspired me to make this dish and to buy the new Adele cd. :)

June 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterOne in a Brazilian

Curried pomme frites and adele. Nice combo. Fast food has nothing on you.

June 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTender B.

Haha! Pinterest makes the blog mention! :) And mail ordering beans? You and Hugh are perfect for each other! ;)

June 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMollie

Bahahahaha!!!! I cannot believe this... The day you posted this, I was rocking out to my Adele album in my kitchen doing a baking bonanza. I was singing along, love number 2, writing my recipes, sifting, and creating. Then I check out your email recipe, and I busted out loud laughing to your witty humor about being her back up singer. HILARIOUS! Love it, and loving this recipe, and photos. Thank you!

June 28, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterfabiola

LOVE pomme frites! this reminds me of the apps they'll serve at restaurants - nice spice, fancy dipping sauce, lovliness!

i started the pinterest thing too, but haven't found many people on it; so far, it's just fun to persue!

June 28, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterheather @ chiknpastry

For the love of the often misunderstood and under-appreciated potato, thanks for the lovely photos of these beauties and the inspiration of yet another potato dish!!

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEpicurea

I haven't made homemade fries in forever, but know that the next time I do it will be these! Perfect to accompany grilled meats and veggies all summer long.

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

I am SO making these tonight. I haven't done homemade fries in ages, but I just got a new mandoline, so now is definitely the time!!

By the way, I LOVE Adele...and I love how my Meyer lemon tree has been giving me tons of lemons lately:)

J'adore les pommes de terre ainsi cuites, bcp moins grasses et croustillantes. Je fais la même chose avec les courges.

June 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNaolia

Love the idea of adding curry spice to the pomme frites - genius! I'd love to try with a little tzatziki dip too. I'm hearing what you're saying about Adele -- have been caught mid-lip synch in my car at the traffic lights a little too often on her account ..

Another gorgeous and inspired recipe. And that is the dreamiest photo of a potato I have ever seen.

July 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKimberley

Ah, wow! I´m loving the first picture of the potato! It almost feels like it´s going to say "well hello everyone" :) Way to go on your singing practice<3 Good luck!

July 3, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterElenore Bendel Zahn

I'm with you on Adele. I can't get enough of her smoky, motown voice!
I always love the combination of warming curry powder with cooling yogurt. They look fabulous! I'm going to make them tomorrow for the 4th!

July 3, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

Oooh! So thin and crispy. They look awesome!

Rancho Gordo are my favorite beans! I buy them as a gift to myself every-so-often. Love everything about this recipe. Curry is my favorite spice. Can't wait to try this!

July 5, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteradrienne

Can't think of a better side to go with the veggie burgers than these pomme frittes! The flavors are just marvelous. The question, however, is will these last long enough to share with your guests? Probably not.

I've tried this many times on my own and it never came out the way I had thanks for this recipe!

July 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterzziggysgal

I made these last night and they were absolute perfection. Totally worth cranking up the oven in the middle of the summer.
