Sometimes the best foods are simple. This recipe is of of those and I eat these all the time! Just three ingredients – sweet potatoes, olive oil, sea salt – and a little patience while they cook.
I like to cut the sweet potatoes into half moons, and very thin. I used three different colors for this – orange, white and purple. I love the purple sweet potatoes as they taste a little bit different, and they a high in anthocyanins – protective antioxidants that give deep purple veggies their color. These beauties contain up to 150% more antioxidant power than blueberries!
I toss them in a bowl with a generous swirl of olive oil. Check out that purple color!
Spread them thinly on a sheet and roast at 350. I try not to let them touch as they will get crispier, faster that way – but they are so dang delicious that sometimes I am greedy and just cut too many to fit!
When they are done, sprinkle with sea salt and enjoy!
A few of these maybe got a bit too browned but you know what?…I ate them all anyway.
Sweet potato fries are remarkably high in vitamin A. They also have a lower glycemic load than regular white potatoes so although they taste sweet, they are easier on your blood sugar. Great additions to a healthy diet!
Sweet Potato Fries
1-3 sweet potatoes, depending of how many fries you want to make!
Cut the potatoes into half moon shapes. Toss with olive oil until well coated. Spread on a baking sheet and roast at 350 for 30 min, flipping them halfway through the cooking time. Sprinkle with sea salt and eat.
(see, I told you it was simple!)
