Garlic Sweet Potato Fries

Prep

Cook

Total

Yield 30-40 Thin-sliced fries

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Step #1:  Preheat your oven to 400°. Cut sweet potato in the size fries you wish. Easiest to do by cutting it in half lengthwise and continue to do so with each piece.

Step #2:  In a medium bowl,toss sweet potatoes with butter or coconut oil, salt, garlic powder and chipotle chile powder to taste. I like using 1/2 teaspoon of garlic and chipotle and 1/4 teaspoon sea salt.

Step #3:  Spread potatoes on a baking sheet. Avoid crowding so potatoes get crisp. Bake 15 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 15 minutes or so. Ovens may vary so keep an eye on them and be sure to cut all the potatoes the same size to ensure even cooking.

Megan’s Comments:

This is my go to sweet potato recipe. Super simple idea for a side to any meal!

Notes:

  1. You can flavor these in so any ways. If you want a sweeter version, try cinnamon and a little nutmeg.
  2. The thinner you cut the sweet potato, the more crispy they will be.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a much healthier version of the American classic – potato chip.  Sweet potatoes are rich in beta carotene, which gives them their orange color.  They are also a great source of fiber that helps to feed the microbiome and support the production of healthy microbes and small chain fatty acid production in the gut.

Adding in good fats with grass-fed butter and coconut oil is essential!!  Most potato chip recipes are using cheap vegetable oils that are high in inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids and trans-fats.

Adding in some good herbs such as garlic, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, oregano, etc. is a great idea to improve flavor and provide more anti-oxidants and phytonutrients.

This is a fantastic snack for active children and adults.  Enjoy!
