Oh magical sweet potatoes.
When I was growing up, my Dad was the only one who liked sweet potatoes in my family. My Mom is not a fan of them at all so I adopted her feelings on sweet potatoes without ever really trying them. What a shame. All those lost years of not having sweet potatoes.
Easy Sweet Potato Fries
2 large sweet potatoes
1 Tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut potatoes into sticks about 1/2-inch in diameter.
Nutrition Notes: Sweet potatoes have more soluble fiber and vitamin C than regular potatoes. There is also significant difference in the glycemic index, and beta-carotene content that make a sweet potato a better option! They aren’t just for your Thanksgiving meal – eat them year round!
Taste Test: The pictures look like the fries are a little burnt but they weren’t – just a nice brown color. These weren’t as crispy as white potatoes but the result was so delicious! They were simple to make and we quickly devoured them! Yum!
