Two-Ingredient Tuesday: Garlic Sweet Potato Fries
I'm pretty sure everyone likes sweet potatoes. They are the most inviting winter vegetable (in my opinion). I do love squash, but you run a much higher risk of coming in contact with a less than flavorful squash than you do a sweet potato.
Both sweet and white potatoes are a great thing to add into any diet. They have an extremely low caloric density, meaning we can eat a ton without actually gaining weight and filling our bodies with great nutrients and fiber at the same time!
Here is one of my favorite new go-to recipes to liven up a sweet potato. They are absolutely delicious, taste even better than fried, and guy-approved!
Feel free to customize with whatever spices peak your interest. Cinnamon, dried oregano, turmeric and sumac powder all have worked great for me! A sprinkling of fresh parsley (and maybe even nutritional yeast!) is a nice touch and burst of fresh flavor.
Garlic Sweet Potato Curly Fries!
Sweet Potatoes are super in season in the fall, so they should be at their peak flavor and nutrition! They are great for getting your Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Potassium, Fiber, and many more beneficial vitamins and minerals.
- 2 large Sweet Potatoes (preferably evenly thick through and not miss-shapen in order to spiralize easily)
- 2 Tbsp Liquid cooking fat (Coconut oil, Ghee, duck fat, avocado oil, etc)
- Sprinkle on some orange turmeric and black pepper for even more anti-inflammatory boost!
- Set oven to 375 degrees
- Spiralize (or cut into thin batons) sweet potatoes
- Toss fries with your cooking fat
- Lay them out on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and season with a generous shake of garlic powder, some salt, and other spices like turmeric, black pepper, and oregano if using.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your potato. That’s it!
1) Spiralize a ton of sweet potato and keep in glass containers with a paper towel to use throughout the week! 2) To recrisp, add to hot pan with no extra oil and sautee for a few minutes.
