Recipe: Baked Cajun Sweet Potato Fries
Need a healthy side that’s still full of flavor? Try out these sweet potato wedges with Cajun spice!
These crispy sweet potato wedges come out Cajun spicy and sweet. Don’t tell anyone but they’re also really healthy. They’re loaded with antioxidants and phytonutrients and are a great source of beta-carotene. Another plus? As complex carbs, they digest slowly and raise blood sugars gradually — keeping you from a spike and drop-off.
