Recipe: Baked Cajun Sweet Potato Fries
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.
2 sweet potatoes, cut into wedges (about 8 wedges per potato)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
- Preheat oven to 425° F.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, oil and Cajun seasoning. Mix well to evenly coat wedges.
- Spread the wedges in a single layer on one (or two, if needed) ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until crispy and brown on one side.
- Flip fries over and bake for another 30 minutes or until the wedges are crispy on the outside and tender inside.
