Sweet Potato French Fries

Hey there friends! I’m back with another super quick, appetizing treat. I had bought sweet potatoes with no particular idea as to what I was going to do with them. I wasn’t feeling a heavy winter recipe like the sweet potato ginger soup I make during the arctic months and it has been a beautiful 70 degrees in western Colorado.  So I decided to try my hand at the trendy sweet potato fries. These fries are actually baked, not fried so we can all feel even better about indulging.  Turn on your favorite podcast, mine currently happens to be Rachel Brathen’s (yoga_girl) From The Heart, and get to baking!

My husband makes killer breakfast potatoes so I basically stole his seasoning recipe and used it for my sweet potato fries.

•3 medium sweet potatoes

•2-3 tablespoons olive oil

•Black Pepper, Himalayan Sea Salt, Garlic Powder, Paprika (add to your liking~ I used about a teaspoon of each)

Pre-heat oven to 425°

•Cut sweet potatoes 

•In a large bowl toss sweet potato strips with olive oil and seasoning mix

•Lay on a baking sheet with space in between each fry

•Bake for approximately 15 minutes on one side 

•Flip fries and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until crispy

Serve warm with a side of your favorite sauce; use local honey to add extra sweetness and balance the savory spices

p.s. These were baked at 9,000 ft above sea level. So if you’re as high as me they should work for you too! (lol)

I’m off to the lake for the day with friends to enjoy the sunshine and some down time before the rush of a new week surges once again. Our town is based on a tourism economy so with the end of June and beginning of July near, our 9 block town is packed and locals are busy! Any time we can find to enjoy the beauty of where we live, we take without hesitation! Hoping your day is just what you need it to be!

Thank you all for joining me here ♥
