Growing up many of us have fond memories of eating french fries without worrying about the salt, fat, or oil that we now try to avoid as adults. We’re now seeing Sweet potatoes are appearing on more menus as a healthy option for fries; as a solution to wanting the flavor and the comfort without the consequences.
Sweet potatoes contain more vitamin A and C with a lower glycemic load and glycemic index that won’t spike your blood sugar like regular potatoes. Unfortunately, all these health benefits are destroyed once they are deep fried. Lucky for us our Chef Catty Boom Batty created a delicious baked recipe that’s easy and healthy. For a gourmet twist she includes fresh herbs from the farmers market to add flavor and texture to these incredible baked sweet potato frenchies. A couple bites will bring you back to your carefree days as a kid while still being a health-conscious grownup.
2 lbs Sweet Potatoes, peeled
2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 t Kosher Salt
1/2 t Cracked Black Pepper
2 T Chopped Parsley
2 T Rosemary Leaves
2 T Sage Leaves, roughly chopped
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut the sweet potatoes to 1/4 to 1/2 an inch wide and 3-4 inches long. Toss them with the oil, herbs and seasoning. Spread them on 2 baking trays and bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Flip the sweet potatoes to the other side and cook until crisp, about 10 minutes. Serve hot!
