Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

Sweet potatoes are a staple dish in numerous countries, including the United States, China and Indonesia, and are praised by many for the health benefits they provide. Sweet potatoes from Japan are the sweetest. Sweet potatoes have been popular in the South for generations, but in recent decades cooks in other regions have been succumbing to the charms of this healthy and flavorful distant cousin of garden-variety spuds

Sweet Potato Fries are slices of pure sweet potato. Sweet Potato Fries are a wonderful, colorful and healthy change to regular fries. Sweet potatoes not only have more fiber, but, more nutrients than a standard white potato. Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A, or beta carotene, and contain fiber, plus vitamin C, B6 and potassium. Sweet potatoes are packed with nutrients, and one of the best foods you can eat.

Sweet potatoes can be boiled, steamed, mashed, baked, grilled, deep fried, served in a savory soup/broth or coconut milk, hot or cold. Baked sweet potato fries are a great treat, and mashed or baked sweet potatoes make delicious comfort food. Sweet potato fries, baked in the oven, are a wonderful alternative to the traditional French fry. The sweet potato fries were a nice twist to regular French fries. The sweet potato fries are definitely interesting and different, especially paired with the different sauces (thai chili, ginger-wasabi aioli) Sweet potato fries are easy to make, and what I have written below barely qualifies as a recipe.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

2 large sweet potatoes

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick
vegetable cooking spray. Peel raw sweet potatoes and cut into 1/4 inch
julienne strips. Place in plastic food bag and drizzle with olive oil.
Seal bag and shake gently to cover potatoes evenly. Spread in a single
layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes, stir gently, turning
strips over. Bake 15 minutes, stir gently. Bake 5 to 10 minutes or
until nicely browned. Season hot potatoes with salt, pepper and
cayenne. (I spice them before baking...)
