Really though, is there anything more satisfying than a nice big plate of fries? Especially when you know that they are actually good for you. Yes, fries that are good for you. Welcome to my world friends.
These fries are nutrient packed, and obvi not deep fried (because that needs to be saved for treatin’ purposes only.) Sweet potatoes are good for you for many reasons, my favourites being their low sugar content in comparison to yams andddd the fact that they are packed with antioxidants. Yes. All of it.
My Sweet Potato Fries are great for any night of the week and are super quick and easy to make.
Here are the ingreds:
- 1 – 3 medium sweet potatoes
- coarse ground sea salt
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Dried basil (or fresh if you have it around!)
Ready? Let’s go:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 F.
Step 2: Cut sweet potatoes into medium sized wedges and toss in a bowl.
Step 3: Cover sweet potatoes with your EVOO, basil, and sea salt. Spread out evenly on a baking tray and pop in the over for 35 minutes.
Step 4: Crank the oven up to “broil” for 3 minutes to brown the fries.
And you are doneeee! I like to enjoy these with ketchup because I am ratchet like that. And because ketchup is awesome. 🙂
