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.
