Have you ever flipped over a package of frozen sweet potato fries and looked at the ingredients? Usually there is soy or canola oil, sugar, corn and various other ingredients that turn a healthy food choice into another junk food option. These paleo and gluten-free sweet potato fries are easy to make and taste delicious. I like to use white sweet potatoes as they have a nice mild, slightly sweet flavor that blends well with the oregano. Yum!
2 lbs white sweet potatoes
2 tbsp oil (this recipe needs a high heat/smoke point oil. I use sunflower oil)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Slice your sweet potatoes lengthwise into fry shaped sticks (you can peel them first if you like but I don’t- it’s easier and the skin tastes good baked).
Mix together the oil and seasonings in a small bowl. Using either a large bowl or a gallon sized ziplock bag add in the sweet potatoes and the small bowl of ingredients. Stir together until well coated (if you use the ziplock bag zip it up and shake the ingredients around until well combined). Spread out your sweet potato goodness onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. Let cool and enjoy! I like to serve this with chicken nuggets. To find my healthy chicken nugget recipe click here.
