Spiced Sweet Potato Fries

So, I don't know about you, but I have a pretty unhealthy obsession with sweet potatoes. I like sweet potato anything. They just have such an amazing flavour to them and don't need much of anything to make them taste good!

Tonight for dinner I made sweet potato fries - baked, not fried! So they're a little healthier for you. If you use a minimal amount of oil on them, they're even healthier for you. :) Healthy + easy = what more could you want!

Preheat your oven to 425F. Cut two medium sized sweet potatoes into 1/4-1/2 inch rounds and then cut them into fry shapes (mine made 4-5 fries per round). Toss all the fries into a medium size bowl and drizzle with your favorite type of oil. Sprinkle with whatever spices you like (I used lots of chili powder, a little garlic, and coarse salt). Toss to coat then spread in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake 30-35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Enjoy!

I served with some homemade sweet chilli dip - mix some sweet thai chilli sauce with a couple spoonfuls of fat free greek yogurt and you're laughing!




Happy Cooking my Friends!

  2. I'm obsessed with sweet potato everything too, except I swing more towards the purple variety! Your description of these baked fries leave me weak in the knees, and yes I'd be laughing too if I had that sweet chilli dip to eat these with.

    Thanks again for your kind comments on my blog!
