Greek Sweet Potato Oven Fries

Sweet potato fries are suddenly very popular.  Even our non-veggie eating daughter is suddenly into sweet potatoes and sweet potato fries, now that she is a “crossfitter”.  Sadly, too many people end up buying a bag of frozen fries or tots.  These are so easy, taste super yummy, are cheap to make, and if you cook them yourself, you know exactly what is in them!  These are well worth the extra few minutes.

Everyone will love this one.  You can make it fancy by making a curry dip for these.  Just mix about a cup and a half of plain Greek yogurt with a tablespoon of curry powder, a squeeze of lime or lemon juice and salt and pepper.  My friend the Organic Eater @organiceater tells me that honeymustard is great with these.  She says that the secret to great honey mustard dressing is that it’s not just honey and mustard! Add mayo!  These oven fries are so yummy though, I bet you don’t even think about the dip.
