Weightloss Wednesday Recipe

Sweet Potato Oven "Fries"
This is how the cookbook (Magic Foods RD) version looks.

The Recipe and how mine look:

2 Medium Sweet Potatoes Peeled

I left mine unpeeled for extra fiber and ended up only using half - the other half I saved for later.

2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

I added smaller amounts because I was using less potato.

Preheat Oven: 450 Degrees

Cut Sweet Potato into 1/2 inch wide wedges and toss in seasonings.

Place on sheet.

Bake turing several times until golden brown and tender, 25 to 30 minutes.

One serving is 1 cup.

This is what I had for that meal:

Salad with lots of veggies, some feta cheese, light vinagarette and a few croutons.
Veggie Morning Sausage

They were so Delicious! 30 minutes was a little too long and I ended up taking mine out early and they were still very crispy.   A blood sugar and weightloss friendly meal.
