In this healthy redo of french fries, replacing russets with sweet potatoes amps up the vitamins -- and baking rather than frying reduces the fat but keeps the crunch.

Cook's Notes

Replace the russets with sweet potatoes and get 52 percent more vitamin C, plus more than a day's worth of vitamin A. You'll bump up the fiber, too.

    This was a really great snack (I could eat it every night) for being on the action plan. I only did 1 sweet potato for myself and skipped the egg white wash (no animal products in week 1) and it gave me about 6 grams of protein: I was feeling a bit protein low during the detox part of the plan, so it was a good addition.

    I've tried to make sweet potato fries without a recipe before, and they end up tasty but limp. I think the combination of starting them in the microwave and the egg wash made them perfectly cooked. However, at 450, the parchment paper burned, but maybe it was my oven. Otherwise, they were delicious! I seasoned with old bay, cayenne, brown sugar and ate them with bbq sauce!

    These were really good, and very easy to make. I think I would skip coating them with the egg whites and just toss the potatoes with a little bit of oil to coat and then add the herbs, plus I'd skip the parchment and just line the pan with foil and either cooking spray or oil to facilitate clean up.

    You can find the calorie counts in the article, before the actual recipe (I found the article first and then clicked on the recipe).

    Delish and super easy. The spice combo adds a nice addition to the already tasty sweet potatoes. Will certainly make again.

    I'm trying to find nutrition information on all of these "healthy" recipes. Am I missing it, or is it simply not included for any of them?

    Ah yes.....the blue words (hypertext). I use a high contrast black screen and have often not seen hypertext w/o highlighting first. I see it now. Thank you.
