Sweet Potato Oven Fries *melissa
I've recently become interested in low glycemic foods and have learned that if you're going to follow a strictly low glycemic diet, white potatoes are out and sweet potatoes are in! So, I tried these sweet potato oven fries and they are delicious and a big hit with the husband!
Ingredients: (serves 2-3)
1 large sweet potato
1 Tbsp chopped rosemary
Set oven to 450 degrees
Begin by washing skin of sweet potato. (I like the taste of the skin so I keep it on. Also, I've been told by my farmer sister-in-law that the skin holds a good portion of the nutrients.) Slice in half then into wedges.
Then place wedges in mixing bowl. Coarsely chop rosemary.
Toss rosemary with sweet potatoes and drizzle with olive oil (to lightly coat) and sea salt
Cover baking sheet with tin foil and spread potatoes out on sheet so that none are overlapping
Now place baking sheet in oven for approximately 30 min. Then, broil on high for about 10 min flipping once for a golden perfection.
(**time saver** Normally these will take 35-40 min to roast to perfection in the oven. If you're running short on time, microwave potatoes in shallow dish for 5-7 min on high until just tender, then place under broiler in oven)
