Today the kids asked for (hmmm demanded) for french fries but i politely declined and happily offered to make sweet potato fries using coconut oil instead. I know you are thinking that french fries are a near perfect food and that it would be very hard to improve perfect...right? well, we are talking about sweetness here and yes loads of nutrients and good fat- Vitamin A and Beta Carotene which french fries can never give. When you prepare and serve these crispy sweet potatoes for your kids or yourself, they will feel anything but deprived!
So here we go...
2 Medium sweet potatoes
Coconut oil to fry
Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Chop them into think "fries" or into wedges- ask your kids for guidance here.
Heat enough coconut oil in a large pan to cover the fries. When the oil is hot, add half of the potatoes to the pan. Fry them for about 7 minutes or until they are done. ensure you remove them before they turn brown as they will crisp up after they are taken out of the hot oil. Serve and enjoy!
P.S you can sprinkle sea salt or herbs.
