    Sweet Potatoe Fries

    I came up with this little recipe for sweet potatoes cause i dont really like them baked or mashed. let me know what u think, worked really wellfor me i love em, altho they are a little spicey....

    1-2 sweet potatoes- boil 8-12 minutes

    Cut potatoes into wedges or rounds

    Place on baking sheet or aluminum foil

    rub about 1-2 tbs of olive oil on both sides of potatoes

    dust with black pepper, salt, and garlic powder/or garlic salt whatever you have ....

    broil til browned or cooked to ur liking


    I used to eat this every day with a pound of ground beef and zuccinni... amazing!!

    I just cut them into fries, toss them in oil and chuck them in the oven. I don't boil them first (it takes forever). Usually though, I just cut them up and toss them in a skillet with coconut oil for frying.

    coconut oil is a unique fat, a medium chain fat. Look it up...some interesting things the body can do with medium chain fats.

    Its very healthy.

    thats how I do them, then sprinkle salt and cayenne on them. They go good with this sauce: mayo, cocktail sauce, wasabi sauce (mix those together like 60% mayo, 30% cocktail sauce, and 10% wasabi sauce). YUM!

    I love eating these things. I have been eating a few chunks of sweet potato now during the day as nearly my only carbs. They're just so healthy feeling.
