This post is going to be everthing the baked sweet potato fries are:
sweet (kind of),
It is as simple and easy as chopping up a few sweet potatoes and throwing them in the oven with some spices.
Now, you can totally bake a bunch of these and keep for leftovers to add to your salads. However they stay crispy only when fresh out of the oven.
And hey- who said the sweet potatoes only have to be a side dish? Make some guacamole or hummus and serve up for a yummy dinner- no hassle and so delicious!
Baked sweet potato fries hype
Everyone has been loving sweet potaotes lately. Is it because they are loaded with healthy carbs, vitamins and minerals? Did you know 1 medium sweet potato has 103 calories, 24 g of carbohydrates (4 grams of fiber and 7 grams of sugar), 2.3 grams of protein and over 100 percent of your daily needs for vitamin A. Check here to read the whole article about this yummy goodness, but first let’s get to the recipe!
Why I love the baked sweet potato fries?
One, it is so easy to make. All you have to do is turn on the oven, cut a few sweet potatoes and drizzle them with oil and spices, put it in the oven and, preferably, wait for them to cook whilst sipping on some red wine in a good company. Ok, usually I am alone and on Instagram, but you know… 🙂
Two, it is delicious! As a side dish, or the main thing happening- fries are winners, aren’t they? Feel free to use regular potatoes as well, or the purple potatoes, possibilites are endless. The polenta makes them so crispy on the outside, yet they are soft and sweet on the inside.
Three, these are really nutritious. Also you are skipping on a lot of unhealthy oil when you are baking them instead.
Four, there is nothing else to say. I feel silly calling this a recipe. So basic, I know. But I had to have it in on my blog… You just need these things in life, ok? 😉
