Spice Sweet Pototoe Fries Recipe



Here is a great alternative to unhealthy fried fries. White potatoes tend to quickly raise your blood sugar whereas sweet pototoes don't.

This recipe is great to go with your favorite bar-b-que or hamburger.
You can spice these fries up anyway you like giving you a sweet and spicy treat.
Be sure to test your blood sugar after trying these.

Sweet potatoes also pack a bigger punch health wise since sweet potatoes have rich in fiber, Vitamin A and C, and B6.
You can find many ways to prepare this healthy tuber.

I especially love these fries during the summer months since you can find sweet potatoes all year round.

Be sure to use a low sodium, low sugar ketchup with these, better yet eat them alone.

INGREDIENTS
2 medium sweet potatoes, washed and cut (lengthwise) into strips (1/3 inch on each side)
1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

DIRECTIONS
1. Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
2. Preheat oven to 450 F.
3. In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix to evenly coat potato strips.
4. Place potato strips on lined cookie sheet (allow space between individual strips for even cooking).
5. Bake for 15 minutes (or until potatoes become crispy) turning strips every 5 to 7 minutes (or as needed).
