Sweet potatoes are a better choice than white potatoes when cooking fries. They are packed with beta carotene and are a low GI food. This means they provide longer lasting, slow-burning fuel for your body. This is better for your blood sugar and energy levels.
In this recipe, these ‘fries’ are not fried at all, but baked in a small amount of heart-healthy olive oil. When baked they are still crispy and delicious – without the avalanche of fat and calories that come with cooking in deep fryers.
