After a holiday meal I always have plenty of leftover sweet potatoes! These sweet potato fries are a real treat and so healthy too!
Be sure to use a good, clean cooking oil or fat and these fries will have none of the problems commercial fries have. I can’t even tolerate the smell of commercial french fries (even the sweet potato fries) because they insist on using rancid vegetable oils to cook them in. I find the smell of fried foods nauseating.
The vegetable oils they use commercially are rancid to begin with and become even more toxic when used for high heat cooking such as when making fries. Read more about fats and cooking oils here and here.
Essentially you want to use a fat or oil that comes from a clean animal source in the case of fats, and from organic plants in the case of oils. For this recipe I used avocado oil which is a great oil for high heat cooking. I’ve also used coconut oil in the past for this recipe.
In combination with the onion and spices, these are a true hit!Print
