Since I began my fit lifestyle, I have tried a wide variety of healthy recipes. I usually end up forgetting an ingredient or adding something that wasn’t supposed to be in it (oops). Sometimes those recipes turn out absolutely terrible… while on other occasions, they turn out fantastic! This Healthy Sweet Potato Fries recipe, just so happened to be one of those GOOD accidents!
I don’t know about you, but I think sweet potato fries are amazing! These are awesome paired with just about anything.. Today I had them alongside steamed asparagus, and broiled chicken topped with salsa!
- 2 Large Yams
- 1/4 Cup Liquid Egg Whites (or 2 Egg Whites)
- Tsp Chili Powder
- Tsp Garlic Powder
- Tsp Oregano
- Tsp Ground Cumin
- Tsp Sea Salt
- 1/2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 1/2 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
Pre-Heat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Chop yams or sweet potatoes into classic french fry shapes. Try to keep them an even thickness or they won’t cook properly (ie. make sure some aren’t super thick while others are slender). Mix spices in a small bowl. Put uncooked yam/sweet potato into a large bowl and add the egg whites. Toss the yam/sweet potato until it is coated in egg white. Next, sprinkle the mixed spices on top and toss until all fries are lightly coated with spices. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray and spread the fries out evenly. Bake for about 20 minutes (keep an eye on them so you don’t over bake). Flip the fries and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until they reach a desired consistency (less time = softer fries, more time = crispier fries). If you like them really crispy, turn your oven to broil for a few minutes after the full 35 minute cook time is up. Keep an eye on them though so they don’t burn! Serve warm and enjoy!
