Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries are a healthy alternative to deep fried french fries. These sweet potato fries are spiced with salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder, cinnamon, garlic and coconut oil to deliver a punch of flavor. I created a creamy curry sauce to go with my sweet potato fries, because who doesn’t like to dunk their sweet potato fries?!

Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that converts to vitamin A in the body. If your sweet potatoes are organic you can leave the skin on because the skin is a great source of fiber. If not, get peeling!

    Delicious! This is a great-tasting, yet healthy take on sweet potato fries. I especially liked the curry sauce. Finding coconut oil was a bit of a challenge, but I finally located it in the Organic section of Loblaw’s. Definitely a keeper.
