Healthy Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

I love sweet potatoes and since I bought low fat cheese for rommie this week (which is a no no), I decided to make a treat using more olive oil than usual.  I'm also trying to avoid any added sugar this week, so a few extra calories at dinner were OK.  These things never get old in my opinion.  This recipe is a keeper and super easy.  I also made roasted cauliflower with a little bit of EVOO and sea salt (roast for 1 hour at 425).  

Sweet Potato Fries

Cut up 1 lb of Sweet Potatoes with skin on into thin strips.  Place in a bowl.  Add 2 tbsp of EVOO (or enough to your liking, I usually just use minimal amount when I'm not cooking for someone else).  Add 5 dashes of Paprika, Pepper and Cumin.  Add 3 dashes of Garlic Powder, Chili Powder and Red Pepper Flakes.  Add 1 dash of salt.  Tosss together nicely.  Place on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, turning once in the middle or until desired crispiness is acquired.    Nutrition is about 200-300 calories for one serving.  This makes enough for 2 hearty portioners or 3 calorie counters.  

This is also my first pic with my new camera.  I'm have a lot of learn when it comes to using an HD SLR!  If you must know, I bought the cheapest one I could find with good reviews, Olympus Pen PL1.
