Looking for a healthy alternative to French fries? Look no further than homemade sweet potato fries!!! This recipe may take a little less than an hour to make, but the end result is a really tasty side to any main course. Compared to traditional potatoes, sweet potatoes have more vitamins, fiber and flavor and less carbohydrates and calories. This recipe is easy to do, but does take some time to bake in the oven, so plan your meal accordingly.
If you don’t like traditional sweet potatoes, try oriental sweet potatoes. Oriental sweet potatoes are a little harder to find, but they flavor is great and they have similar nutritional benefits. Oriental sweet potatoes have a purple peel and are white inside. The flavor tastes more like a white cake than a sweet potato. I like these better and use them more often than the traditional sweet potato. If you use these skip the Cinnamon, and just season with salt and you don’t need to cook as long.
