Who doesn’t love sweet potato fries?!
Wait. Actually, if you don’t love sweet potato fries, then don’t answer that question. If you do, then answer away.
I KNOW, RIGHT?!? WE ALL LOVE SWEET POTATO FRIES!!! (Those of you who don’t, thanks for playing a long. I’ll write about something you do like, just message me what it is).
Why not take a food you love, and make it yourself?! This way, you have control over how your food is made and can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home. Win for everyone.
Plus, these fries are easy peasy to make and also nutritious! Packed with vitamins D, B6 and C as well as iron and magnesium, this makes for a great snack or part of a meal.
Ingredients I used (You can tweak the recipe for yourself, depending on how much you want to make).
Two organic sweet potatoes or yams
All purpose organic salt
Organic avocado oil
I didn’t even measure out exactly how much of each ingredient, except the last one. I used two cups of love, this time. That’s the beauty of cooking your own meals. You can try and see whatever works. I understand when recipes get a bit more complicated, you may need more guidance with amounts of ingredients. With this one, if you want the product to have less fat, then use less oil. If you have been watching your intake of good fats and not so good fats, then it shouldn’t be too big of a deal.
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
Cut the sweet potato a couple times length wise. Then cut the resulting pieces width wise. Depending on how think you want your sweet potato fries, you can mess with this portion of the recipe.
Put the pieces in a mixing bowl and pour in a bit of oil. Coconut oil would work great as well. Shake on a bit of salt (sea salt would work great, too) and use your hands to mix it all up. Make sure the pieces are nice and coated with oil. This will keep them from sticking on your cooking sheet.
Place the pieces of potato on a cooking and bake for 15 minutes. Once the time is up, take the cooking sheet out flip the pieces of potato and cook for another 10 or so minutes. Or until the sweet potato fries look crispy.
Take the tray out and let cool for a few minutes.
Once those bad boys have cooled off, impress your girlfriend or boyfriend or friend or family members with your home cooked food. You can tell them it was really complicated to make. You and I will know it was no sweat. It will be our little secret. 😉
