3 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds total), peeled and sliced into rounds about ¼-inch thick
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons lime zest
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Place the sweet potatoes and oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste and then toss until well coated.
Place the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender.
Season with the lime zest and juice. Serve warm.
Back to the Basics:
Lime doesn’t go with your main course? Then just omit it and you have simply delicious baked sweet potato fries.
Sweet potatoes are not only sweeter in flavor than their white counterpart, but they are also nutritionally far superior. Packed with vitamins and fiber, sweet potatoes are ranked the number one vegetable by the Center for Science in the Public Interest. For those concerned about sugar, this complex carbohydrate also ranks extremely low on the glycemic index…despite what its “sweet” name suggests.
