  1. Heat oven to 425F (218C) degrees. Toss sweet potatoes with cooking oil and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Spread out onto a sheet pan, making sure fries don’t touch each other. Roast for 15 minutes, flip and roast for another 10 to 15 minutes, until tender on the inside and crisp on the outside.
  2. Heat saute pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add first part of oil and then sliced sausage to heated oil. Saute until golden, ~5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Return pan to medium-high heat and add second part of oil. Add onions to heated oil with a sprinkle of salt. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes.
  4. Next add in peppers and saute for another 3 minutes.
  5. Add tomato paste, water, coriander. Saute for another 3 to 5 minutes, until ingredients are softened. If at any point the pan looks dry and ingredients might burn, add more water.
  6. Toast buns in oven with sweet potatoes if desired. Spoon sausage and peppers into buns and drizzle with your favorite condiments (we love good ol’ ketchup and mustard). Enjoy with fries!
