Sweet Potato Fries
The sweet potato is a nutrition powerhouse. One large sweet potato furnishes almost twice the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A. 42 % of vitamin C, and four times the beta carotene. When you eat a sweet potato with the skin on, it has more fiber than oatmeal. And sweet potatoes are naturally gluten-free.
Add a Flavor Variation
If you have a favorite fresh herb, such as basil. or dill, try it in this easy-to-make recipe instead of the rosemary.Marcia says:
Our children love these fries-but they prefer them made without any herbs. To keep everyone happy, we make two pars--one for the adults and one for the kids!
