Chili Sweet Potato Fries

Ah, sweet potato fries. God's gift to paleo-kind. Delicious, crispy yet soft. A good way to get carbs - I know many paleo-ers are uncertain if sweet potatoes are actually paleo, but I know that when I eat a higher amount of health carbs (like once every day or two) my mood, and hormones stabilize.

I have been making this recipe for a while, and it is still one of my favorites.

See that funny swirly vegetable in the background - those are called fiddleheads. I'm only telling you that because until I bought them, I didn't know what they were! They are delicious and remind me ever so slightly of asparagus in flavor.

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite things, and I often keep a bag of pre-cut fries in the freezer if I want an easy meal. These are super easy to make, and delicious.

To make them you'll need one sweet potato, oil of choice (olive or coconut), chili powder, arrowroot powder, and salt and pepper.

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel and chop your sweet potato into fries (I like mine skinny). Dust the fries in about 2 TBSP of arrowroot powder. This is optional, but makes them crisp up. Toss the fries in about 2 Tablespoons of oil, then mix in spices to taste.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until crispy, flipping twice. Eat right away and enjoy!!

On another note, if you are in the Calgary area, I've created a facebook group called Paleo Calgary - we'd love to see you there!
