I found out about sweet potatoes just a couple of years ago and HOW I love them. Oven baked, in stews, grilled. They are so versatile and nutritious. Today I used both the “regular” orange potato, but also a purple one that I found in the store yesterday. They are very similar apart from that the purple one is firmer when cooked and makes crispier fries.

2 Sweet potatoes – peeled and cut into fries

Put them on a tray lined with baking sheet, spreading them out.
Cook at 250 degrees C until slightly brown, turn them once.
