Zippy Sweet Potato Fries with Paleo Ketchup

Recipes, Veggies | January 12, 2015 | By

French fries are the bane of my existence…feeling like I won the lottery with this sweet potato fries recipe is an understatement. These fries are slightly sweet, salty, spicy, crunchy and just so all around perfect that it’s hard to believe that they’re actually amazingly healthy for you to eat!  I like to bake mine until they’re almost black around the edges and crispy!

Not only are sweet potatoes high in vitamin B6, vitamin D, vitamin C, iron, magnesium, and potassium, they are high in carotenoids that help prevent cancer and protect against the effects of aging. These sweet potato fries are absolutely mouthwatering and there’s no way you will be able to just eat a few.   I may or may not have been known to make and eat an entire batch to myself, especially when dipped in my paleo ketchup.  This paleo ketchup is versatile and can be used on all things and on everything.  Make a batch and prepare to be amazed…try dipping my Paleo Chicken Tenders in it!
