Sweet Potato Fries

Baked sweet potatoes have become a weekly staple ever since my youngest started solid foods! They’re easy to prep in advance and heat up during the week and a great food for the entire family. But tonight, I decided to spice them up a bit and make some homemade sweet potato fries.

I started with 4 small sweet potatoes and cut them into strips.

Make sure you clean them good!

Keeping them close to equal size was a challenge but I did my best!

I tossed the pieces into a stainless steel bowl and added 1 TBS of olive oil, 1 tsp of sea salt, a sprinkle of cracked black pepper and a TBS of minced garlic. (Note: you could add cinnamon if you’re looking for something sweet, or even some cumin and cayenne pepper if you want a kick. Since my kids were eating them I kept it simple but feel free to get creative!)

SP prep

 

I put the lid on, gave it a good shake, then laid them out on a jelly roll pan.

Baking time will vary, but I did 30 minutes, flipping every 10 minutes.

SP cooked
While the potatoes were cooking I cut up and steamed some broccoli and served it with some grilled chicken I had grilled last week, froze then defrosted for tonights dinner!

Well rounded clean eating, fulfilling meal enjoyed on this hot hot summer night!
