These are so yummy I almost can’t believe they’re the healthiest food ever! Sweet potatoes are SO good for you, and this is such a better way to prepare them than coating them with butter, sugar, or marshmallows. These make a great late-night snack, and they don’t take very long to prepare at all. They look a little like carrot sticks when they’re all cut up, but once they’re cooked, their color and flavor get so much richer. Leave the skins on if you want less color, more fiber.
Oven Sweet Potato Fries
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled
1 tsp black coarse sea salt (you thought it was pepper, didn’t you?)
1 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise into thin strips, and place on a baking sheet.
3. Sprinkle olive oil, sea salt, onion salt, paprika and garlic powder, and toss to coat thoroughly.
4. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until “fries” are soft and delicious.
