Zesty Lime Sweet Potato Fries

This is our favorite sweet potato fry recipe. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

Prep and cook time: 35 min
Tools: Sharp knife, baking sheet
Serves: 2

1 large sweet potato
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 - 1 tsp sea salt (depending on preference)
zest of 1 lime
freshly ground black pepper

1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Zest the lime, cover with cellophane and set aside (this keeps it from drying out). 
2. Peel the sweet potatoes and trim the ends. Cut the potatoes in half crosswise and then cut those halves lengthwise and into match sticks (be careful!). Or, you can just slice the peeled sweet potato into medallions. 
3. Transfer the sweet potatoes into a large bowl (or onto the baking sheet) and toss with oil and salt until well coated. 
4. Arrange the sweet potato fries in a single layer on the baking sheet (this will help make the crispier instead of steamed). The oil should prevent the potatoes from sticking to the pan. Put the potatoes in the oven for about 20-25 min., until tender. Stir half-way through for even baking. 
4. Remove the cooked potatoes and toss until well combined with the lime zest. Season with salt and pepper as needed and serve hot.
5. Enjoy!
