Since Josh and I have started our sugar-cut-back journey, I’ve since become reacquainted with some of my old vegetable friends. One of those being sweet potatoes. I had forgotten how much I love this versatile vegetable! I’ve tried a couple new things with this vegetable. One of those being sweet potato crusted quiche. Let’s just say that I will NOT be posting that recipe on Sweet Wife. It was one of those recipes that looks great on Pinterest and then after you make it you realize why there were only “before” pictures of the ingredients being put into place and then no “after” pictures. After stretching the sweet potato boundaries a little far I decided to rein it in and try something a little more… traditional.
Let me first make note of a few reasons to try (if not love) the sweet potato version of the French fry:
- A fair amount of vitamin B6 which energizes one’s metabolism and supports hair/skin/vision health (who doesn’t want that??)
- A TON of vitamin A which supports immune and vision health.
- They also have a good amount of fiber and protein which will allow your body to process this food easily (it won’t stick to your hips) and protein, of course, helps rebuild muscle.
All that being said, sweet potato fries just taste better than plain ol French fries. The combination of sweet and salty put these fries on a whole other level.
Let’s get to it, shall we?[amd-yrecipe-recipe:9]
This recipe works as a great side that is super versatile and makes a great pair to lots of all-American entrees. When I made this I paired it up with my BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches and the entire meal was a hit!
For an unexpected twist, try adding curry seasoning to your sweet potato fries!
