Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries.  They’re the new hotness. Colorful, orange, fiber and vitamin-packed goodness fried up and served to order. Wait… fried? I’m calling shenanigans!

Look, if you’re going the route of losing weight, you don’t have to give up sweet potato fries. At all. You just prepare them differently by getting rid of the deep fryer and going the baked/broiled rout with this HDIGF recipe. And honestly, it doesn’t get easier than this.

Sweet Potato Fries Recipe: What You Need


A sharp knife, a Ziploc bag (or mixing bowl), a cookie/baking sheet.


2- 4 Sweet potatoes (depending on how many you’re feeding/how many leftovers you want)

1 TBSP. Olive Oil

1/2 tsp. Himalayan Salt


Sweet Potato Fries Chop and Toss Prep

Set your oven to “Broil” and take the top rack a couple rows down (middle is a good spot).

Wash your sweet potatoes. I don’t remove the skins as they’re full of fiber and, well, I like them. Grab that ultra sharp knife and cut into wedges. This may take some muscle so be careful. Each potato should give you 8-12 wedges. Grab your Ziploc bag and place your wedges into it. You may need a couple bags depending on how many potatoes you’ve chopped. Add a your oil and salt (at this point, it’s personal preference as to how much oil and salt you’d like on your fries). Seal the bag and shake until sweet potatoes are coated with oil and salt.

Dump those potatoes out of the bag and onto your baking sheet, placing the potatoes with skin side down (I don’t lay them on their sides as they tend to stick). Broil for 15 or so minutes until tops brown and you can pierce the fries with a fork.

Done and done. Eat up with your favorite protein and big ol’ green salad/veggies. Counted as a carb serving.
