Sweet Potato Fries

This one’s a keeper!

Ingredients:

  • 3 sweet potatoes, washed and sliced thick like steak fries (I sliced each of mine lengthwise into eight pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 scant teaspoon EACH garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What I did:

  • Mix the seasonings together in a small bowl.
  • Put the sweet potato slices in a gallon bag with the olive oil, shake to coat.
  • Add the seasonings, shake to coat again.
  • Spread evenly on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 400 for 15 minutes, take out and turn each over.
  • Bake for another 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

These were SO SO SO GOOD.

Did you know that one baked sweet potato with skin contains:

  • 262.2% vitamin A
  • 28.4% vitamin C
  • 26% manganese
  • 13% copper
  • 12.6% fiber
  • 12.5% vitamin B6
  • 8.7% potassium
  • 8.1% iron

and is only about 95 calories?
