Healthy sweet potato fries that are baked in oven. Less in fat and loaded with complex carbohydrates, dietary fibers and vitamin A
- 2 sweet potatoes
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 1-2 tablespoon parmesan cheese to garnish (optional)
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley to garnish (optional)
Preheat the oven at 400 F.
Wash the sweet potatoes thoroughly. Dry and cut it into half across the length and then into even sized sticks.
In a large mixing bowl add 1 tablespoon oil, vinegar, garlic powder, dried parsley and paprika. Then add sweet potato sticks, salt and pepper. Mix well until sticks are evenly coated with oil and spices.
Prepare a baking sheet by evenly coating with remaining oil. Spread the sweet potato sticks onto the pan. Ensure each stick is touching the pan and not overlapping each other for even heating.
Transfer the pan into preheated oven. Bake it for 15 min. and then flip the fries. Bake further for 10 min. Again flip, turn the oven on to the highest heat setting (mine is 500 F) and bake for another 10 min to get those little brown and crispy edges.
