How hippies do football food...

Being whole food eating hippies AND massive football fans, I had to figure out some healthy(ish) football food for the NFC championship game. I'm pleased with the spread! We had tempeh hot wings, roasted potatoes, sweet potato fries, a green salad, and fruit kabobs with an orange cashew dip. It was yummy!

I got the recipe for sweet potato fries from a fellow food blogger, and the original recipe is here. I changed it a little to reduce the salt and make it gluten free. So, here's how I made them:
Sweet potato fries
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp gf all purpose flour or amaranth flour
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne
1 tsp salt
Chop sweet potatoes into fries. Put the rest of the ingredients in a big bag. Put the fries in the bag and shake them until they're coated. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes until soft and slightly browned.

Here's the recipe for the orange-cashew dip
1 1/2 C raw cashews
1/4 C maple syrup
1/2 C orange juice
1 tsp vanilla
Blend in a high powered blender until smooth and creamy. Chill and serve with fruit!
