Baked Sweet Potato Fries


Sweet potatoes are considered one of the earth's healthiest foods, according to "The World's Healthiest Foods". Filled with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory nutrients, and blood sugar-regulating nutrients, these should be added to everyone's diet. 
I admit I am not a big sweet potato fan. One of the only ways I like them is in fry format. Of course that usually leads to another unhealthy dish. So instead I bake them. 

This is a very easy recipe. It is also healthy. So indulge! 

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Olive Oil, for tossing
5 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch long slices
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon parsley

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Combine all seasoning together. 
Line a sheet tray with parchment. In a large bowl toss sweet potatoes with just enough oil to coat. Sprinkle with seasoning. Spread sweet potatoes in single layer on prepared baking sheet, being sure not to overcrowd.
 Bake until sweet potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally, about 20 minutes. 
Serve hot.
