Curried Sweet Potato Fries

Health benefits of Sweet Potatoes:  They are bursting with vitamin A (377 percent of your daily recommended intake per cup!) and are high in potassium and fiber, this versatile vegetable can be worked into a variety of dishes, from sides to desserts. One point to note: Its high sugar content translates into a fair number of calories, so consider this ingredient more like a starch than a vegetable.

1 serving

1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into long 1/2-by-1/4-inch-thick fries

1 tsp. olive oil

1 tsp. mild curry powder

3/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. finely grated lime zest, plus a lime wedge for serving


Preheat the oven to 425 F. Combine all ingredients in a large zip-top bag; toss until fries are well coated. Spread in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet; bake until fries are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve with a lime wedge. (Fries can be reheated in the oven or a toaster oven.)
