Roasted Sweet Potato Fries
Love french fries but aren't crazy about the fat that comes with them? Try substituting your usual culprit with these sweet potato fries instead!
2 tbsp (25 mL) vegetable oil
2 tsp (10 mL) chili powder
1 tsp (5 mL) paprika
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
- Peel potatoes and cut into sticks like fries. Place in a large bowl and toss with oil.
- Prepare rub by combining chili powder, paprika and salt in a small bowl. Toss with potatoes. Arrange in a single layer on one or two parchment-lined baking sheets. Roast in a preheated 425°F (220°C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until browned on the bottom. Turn potatoes over and roast 10 to 15 minutes longer, until tender, crisp and nicely browned.
Bonnie says: These sweet potato fries are great as a side dish, a snack or serve them as an appetizer with a dip.
Fran says: One serving of these fries contains about 199 calories and two grams of fat. Compare that to a medium order of fries at a fast-food chain—about 360 calories and 17 grams of fat.
