  • 2 tbsp Nutiva Organic Hemp Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric (dried or powdered)

  1. Preheat the oven to 357 degrees

  3. Mix spices and seeds together
  4. Place potatoes into a large bowl, coat with oil and then add in seed/spice mixture, being sure to distribute the spice over each "fry".
  5. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Lay potatoes out on the sheet ensuring one layer (Note: overlapping layers will cause the potatoes to steam not crisp)
  7. Bake potatoes in the oven for 25-30 minutes, turning them halfway through the baking time.
  8. Harissa Dipping Sauce:
  9. Ensure your manna is a room temp and smooth.
  10. Add all other ingredients to manna and mix well. Note: this is a spicy sauce, if you like a little less kick decrease the amount of Harissa paste.
