You will never have tastier fries ! Sweeter and healthier, these perfectly crisp fries will give colour and taste to your side dishes. Plus, sweet potatoes have a lower glycemic load than normal potatoes, which means they don’t raise your blood sugar as much. They are also loaded with very healthy nutrients such as vitamin B’s and a whole lot of fiber. Of course, they have to be made as healthy as possible and we will show you how. You can make just about anything with sweet potatoes if you bake them right; cubes, fries or even just cut in half. Blending it into a soft purée is equally delicious. Sweet potatoes are definitely a trend this year !
It’s very easy to make crunchy sweet potato fries. Here’s how:
- 1 big sweet potato
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- paprika (optional)
- olive oil (or any cold pressed oil)
-Cut the potato in sticks, preferably of the same size and width
-Sprinkle some salt and oil over the potatoes.
– Bake in the over for 20 minutes at 180°. Try to pierce the fries with a fork, they need to be crisp outside and tender inside. Sprinkle paprika, onion powder and garlic powder and bake for another 5 minutes.
-Serve with some fresh herbs.
Bon appétit !
