This week I was lucky enough to find more purple sweet potatoes. They taste almost like the yellow, however, much better. These ones will steal the show every time they come up in your dinner plate, smile.
Approx. Prep and Cook Time: 20 to 40 Minutes
Approximate Cost: $3.25
Difficulty Level: Easy
Allergens, Other: Gluten Free __X__ Vegetarian __X__
3 to 4 medium purple sweet potatoes ($2.50)
2 tbsp. roasted garlic and herbs (.25)
3 tbsp. Angie’s basting olive oil (.50)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Rinse the sweet potatoes thoroughly, pat dry and peel them, or leave the peel on.
In a stable cutting board, cut them into large but not thick French fries.
Season and rub well with my basting oil and roasted garlic and herbs.
Place in a single layer on a baking pan and oven fry at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, then bring the heat up to 400 and continue to fry until golden and tender, however, crispy. (Keep an eye on them half way though.)
