Oven Sweet Potato Fries

These are so yummy I almost can't believe they're the healthiest food ever! Sweet potatoes are SO good for you, and this is such a better way to prepare them than coating them with butter, sugar, or marshmallows. These make a great late-night snack, and they don't take very long to prepare at all. They look a little like carrot sticks when they're all cut up, but once they're cooked, their color and flavor get so much richer. Leave the skins on if you want less color, more fiber.

Oven Sweet Potato Fries

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled
1 tsp black coarse sea salt (you thought it was pepper, didn't you?)
1 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise into thin strips, and place on a baking sheet.
3. Sprinkle olive oil, sea salt, onion salt, paprika and garlic powder, and toss to coat thoroughly.
4. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until "fries" are soft and delicious.

Serves 4.

After making these, I literally thought to myself, "where have these been all my life?!?" I could have saved myself from eating so many bags of chips in law school...

Strangely enough, I fell in love with sweet potato fries when I was living out in Cleveland. One of my favorite restaurants - Max's Deli in Rocky River - offered them with a side of cinnamon sugar. So good!

I liek to sprinkle pizza pepper over them as soon as i take them out the oven. I don't know the name of the pepper, but its cousin would be parmesan :). Thanks for the tip
