sweet potato fries w. coconut oil
April 18, 2014 § 1 Comment
this is seriously one of my go-to recipes because of the delicious and ease factors. oh and they’re healthy which is another reason why i love them so! this batch has coconut oil which sometimes i choose to simply leave out if i’m feeling in a particularly over-the-top healthy mood. just spray the potatoes with a bit of cooking spray before placing them in the oven if you choose to go the oil-free route. either way i promise you’ll love these!
ingredients: (serves 1 or 2)
• 1 medium to large sweet potato or yam of the organic variety if possible
• 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil, melted
• cracked black pepper
• sea salt (optional)
• cardamom (optional)
• non-stick cooking spray
line a large baking sheet with tin foil and mist with cooking spray as to avoid sticking. cut the sweet potato into small rectangle pieces and spread onto the baking sheet. drizzle the coconut oil evenly over the potato sticks, season and toss together with clean hands to coat. bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes until slightly browned. if you’d like them a bit more on the crisp side as i do, switch the oven setting and broil them for a few more minutes careful not to burn. serve immediately with ketchup or barbecue sauce and enjoy!
