Spicy Sweet Potato Fries – November's Recipe of the Month

Sweet potatoes and yams are plentiful and cheap this month. Many people do not realize that they are much healthier for you than potatoes. This recipe was in our monthly safety and health magazine at work. It is super low fat (14 g for the whole recipe). I made these last night and they were so delicious. It’s a great substitute for high fat French fries. Baked on the high heat, they were very crispy on the outside. The seasonings bring out their special flavor – no need to add salt.

Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

3 medium-large sweet potatoes
1 TBS olive or canola oil
1 TBS red wine vinegar
2 tsp sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 475°. Peel and cut potatoes length-wise into wedges 1-2 inches wide. Blend remaining ingredients and pour over potatoes, tossing well to coat. Place wedges on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake 10 minutes; turn wedges over and bake another 10 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender and starting to brown.
