Sweet Potato Fries

My absolute favorite after skiing treat is Home Made Yam Fries.
They are tasty, delicious, and a healthy alternative to a deep fried plain potato version.

Sweet potatoes are rich in Vitamin A, and Vitamin C. Both Vitamins are powerful antioxidants that encourage cell renewal. 
Sweet potatoes offer a calming effect for muscle pains and are a great food for refueling the body after intense muscular work. 

Homemade Sweet potato Fries:

Pre-heat oven to 400F

1 sweet potato or yam
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh Rosemary 
one-two cloves garlic minced
dash of salt
dash of chipolte chili powder

Cut up the potato into thin wedge like strips and put in a large mixing bowl.
Add the oil, rosemary, salt, and spice.
Bake for 20 mins, or until soft
Broil for 2 minutes to get a crisp frie like crunch

Serve as is or with humus, aioli, or mustard.

This recipe can be easily doubled to feed a larger group
