Sweet Potato Fries: gluten free, vegan

sweetpotatofries4

I love sweet potatoes! I go through phases where I eat a lot of them. I roast them, bake them, mash them and fry them. I like them with some butter and salt, or baked with maple syrup on holidays. I have put them in enchiladas and in soups.  But my very favorite way to have them is to make them into spicy french fries.

Homemade french fries are great. They are easy to make and much healthier than their fast food counterparts. I have to make a lot of these! Everyone in the house likes them. I don’t know about your house but in my house its rare to have everyone love the same thing. Even my sweet potato hating son likes these fries.

Give them a try and let me know how you like them!

If there are any left over store in an airtight container. Reheat in the oven just until warm. We love them with an over easy egg in the morning!
