Sweet potatoes are good COMPLEX-carbohydrates providing several vitamins and minerals good for health. They contain Beta Carotene, Vitamin B5, B6, magnesium and dietary fiber. When baked, the amount of Vitamin C increases too!
These are some carbohydrates I can get behind! What do you say? Lets bake some Sweet Potato French Fries!
What you’ll need:
- 5-6 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 TBLS olive oil
- 1 Freezer bag (for covering in olive oil)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Next, you’ll want to shave the outer skin of the sweet potato. Cut the sweet potatoes into medium to thin slices to represent a “french fry.” Then, shake the potatoes in a freezer back with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Lay out on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper (I use sea salt).
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, take out of oven and move them around to be sure they aren’t sticking. Bake another 7-10 minutes until done to your liking!
Serve as a side for any meal or just enjoy as an afternoon snack! Try dipping them in this sweet, homemade greek-yogurt dip for an appetizer at any type of party!
