Sweet Potato Fries

My new favourite snack! Tasty, yummy goodness...and yes, healthy too, but mostly just good! As per usual with my recipes my best advice is make it your own, add what you like, don't add what you don't like. Sweet potatoes can handle a lot of flavour, give it to them!

The thing about this recipe is that I mostly just played around until I was happy with the flavour, so um, I don't have exact measurements. Next time I make them (which will be soon) I'll update the recipe to reflect better measurements.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
cover baking sheet with parchment paper or tinfoil (this is important - they will stick - i speak from experience)

4 sweet potatoes (for about 3 servings, keep in mind they shrink up a bit)
cut them up as you like your fries, just be sure they're all about the same size
toss with olive oil (a tsp or two, well coated but not oily)
Paprika
cinnamon
nutmeg
ginger
curry powder
salt and pepper

I decided the fries needed a complimentary dip:

1/4 cup mayo
1 or 2 cloves of garlic (I like it garlicky)
juice from 1/2 lime

Sooooo good!

I'm always on the lookout for sweet potato recipes as we get a lot from our markets. These look great and the kids will love them. Thanks.
