>Super Easy Veggie of the Week: Sweet Potato Fries

Category : Healthy Eating

These are a delicious substitute to regular fries and a great way to get your kids to eat their veggies!

Start by peeling the sweet potatoes.

Then slice them into approximately equal sized fries.

Put the raw fries into a large ziploc bag.
Add 2-3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
Add seasonings…your choice.
We use Nature’s Seasoning, some cayenne pepper and/or garlic powder.
Shake in bag until all fries are covered.

You can just put them on a oiled cookie sheet and then smear them with more oil and sprinkle on the seasonings, but I feel they get coated much better in the bag. The only draw back is washing out the bag if you are like me and want to re-use it.

Next, arrange fries on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes.
Flip them over after the first 15 minutes so they brown on both sides.

Cooking times will vary depending upon how thick you cut your fries, so use your own best judgement…
like Ryan always says, you have to try a sample!
