RECIPE - Roated Sweet Potato (or Yams) w/ dip

These are such a great alternative to your regular french fries!  We LOVE them!

  • 3 med sized yams
  • 2 tbsp oilve oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3-2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  1. Preheat oven to 325.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (your potato will stick if you don't) 
  2. Scrub the skin on the yams to get all the dirt off
  3. Slice the yams into "fingers"
  4. In a large zip lock bag combine the remaining ingredients. 
  5. Add the yams to the bag and shake!
  6. Empty the bag onto the baking sheet making sure there is room around each yam "finger" so it will crisp up.
  7. Bake for 60 - 80 mins, until the yams are browning and crisping.  Make sure to flip them a couple times.
Dipping Sauce

  • Combine 1/2 cup low fat sour cream with 1 tsp paprika, and 2 tbsp dijon. Dip and Enjoy!
