French fries are a guilty pleasure, but they no longer have to be. Swapping in sweet potatoes and replacing the deep fryer with your oven can make these a 'healthy' side dish for any meal. The key to this is using a mandolin so that all the fries are similar in size and cook evenly. If you do not have a mandolin, you can use a knife, but try your best to get that precision.
Recipe yields 4 servings
2 large sweet potatoes
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp sea salt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Scrub the potatoes clean in the sink. Using a mandolin, slice the potatoes into a fine julienne.
Toss the potatoes in a bowl with your olive oil and sea salt.
Generously spray a baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange the potatoes on the pan in a single layer. Place in the oven for 20 minutes, remove and flip, then return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
Once cooked, remove from the pan and place on paper towels to remove any excess grease from the cooking spray.
Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy!
