sweet potato fries
There is a restaurant in Houston that makes the BEST sweet potato fries. I pretend like they are good for me, and I eat every last one (besides the ones stolen off of my plate). They are delicious. When we have our yummy grass fed burgers here at home, I like to make a version of the sweet potato fries.
First I peel and chop the potatoes. I like them kind of thick, but not too thick. If they are too thick they take too long to cook.
I place them on a lightly oiled sheet (either coconut or olive), and then sprinkle some oil on top. Very little oil. Then I place them under the broiler until they crisp up a bit.
My husband would want me to stop right here and tell you that they don't get nearly as crispy as truly fried potatoes would. But it doesn't really bother me. These are delicious!
To sweet potatoes! God's crowning achievement in the root vegetable category!
