Hot potato alert! The sweet potatoes in this recipe are about as gloriously tender, crisp, and steamy as can be thanks to a shallow frying technique. Plus, they’re seasoned with smoky spices,— basically, a riff on barbecue sweet potato chips. They’re not the only good thing about this recipe, either: artichokes, quinoa, baguette croutons, feta, and tomatoes ensure that things stay filling and fully loaded

Meanwhile, heat ¼ cup oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Cut sweet potato into ½-inch cubes. Drain artichokes, then pat dry with a paper towel. (TIP: Dry them well to reduce oil splatters when cooking). Halve tomatoes. Cut baguette into 1-inch cubes. Line a plate with paper towels.

Once oil is hot, add sweet potato to pan. Cook until tender and crisped, turning to brown all over, 8-10 minutes. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside to drain on your lined plate. Season immediately with 1 tsp barbecue seasoning (we’ll use the rest later) and plenty of salt and pepper.
