Growing up in the South, I remember that sweet potatoes were practically a staple at our family table. However, I didn’t keep up the tradition of serving this bold-hued, extra nutritious vegetable in my own kitchen. That is until I discovered Alexia Sweet Potato Julienne Fries. My local Whole Foods stocks them in the frozen food section. On a whim one day, I picked up a package and discovered how easy and quick they were to prepare. You can bake or deep-fry them, but I always opt for the former. You simply spread the frozen fries on a baking sheet, and pop them into a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes until they are hot and crisp. I’ve served them with grilled steaks, roast chicken, and burgers, but they could also be offered as an appetizer with a bowl of aioli for dipping. These fries contain no trans fat, and are seasoned very subtly with hints of sea salt, chili pepper, and mustard.
