Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries

This healthy and delicious recipe makes a great substitute for traditional French fries. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene, which is a precursor of vitamin A. Sweet potatoes are also a very good source of vitamin C and manganese, and a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B6, and potassium.
