Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

Okay, the 'shine' of being back to work has worn off... today was definitely a work day.  But that's all good.  That's how it goes, right?  I got in a great workout though, despite going in thinking I was too tired.  Those are the best ones! I love the little zip of energy I get from a good workout.

Today's recipe is a healthier version of french fries... it's another side dish, because I wanted something simple.  Paired with a nice sirloin steak from my parent's farm, and some fresh steamed vegetables, it was a great supper.  Really simple to make.  The longest part was waiting on the oven -- which provided the right amount of time to cook my steak.  Yum!

Roasted Sweet Potato Fries
Makes: 4 servings

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp chili powder

Preheat oven to 425 F.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Cut sweet potatoes into approximately 16 pieces.

In a small bowl, mix together the oil and chili powder.  Using a pastry brush, coat each potato slice with the oil mixture and place on the baking sheet.
Bake 30 minutes, turning wedges several times during roasting so they cook evenly.
