Curried Sweet Potato Fries

I was a sweet potato late comer. For some reason, as a child I thought I didn’t like them. I didn’t even try them until I was pregnant. Looking for nutritious foods, I read up on the good old sweet potato. Full of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, high in fiber, low in calories what more can you ask for?

I mostly eat my sweet potatoes one of two ways, straight up baked or like below. When I bake them, I eat them plain, skin and all, with just a bit of salt and pepper. I find the flesh of the potato super moist and just perfect. However, when I cut and bake them in fry pieces a little curry powder does wonders!

And yes, the toddler and I LOVE dipping them in ketchup!Curried Sweet Potato Fries

    Hi Holly! #1 - Thanks SO much!! #2 - Ummm, I really want to but I think I would be braking the law. I wonder if it would be legal to use the term, DietUnits. Any lawyers out there??? Notice why I give you calories, fat and fiber though! ;~) #3 - That's great! I'm glad. See, there, I'm kind of breaking the rules as bit. ;~) #4 - You have NO idea how good that make me feel! Reply

    I love your website. I found you a couple of months ago and have lost 15 pounds so far on WW. You are a true inspiration, and I check in here often to see what's happenning. I get some really good ideas from you - you have done so much for so many people. Thanks to you, I'm making sweet potato fries at 9:30 a.m. - I don't love breakfast foods, and this will be a perfect and delish way to start my day. Thanks again. Reply

    Marcy - I LOVE eating non-breakfast breakfasts! Since having the toddler I don't do it as much. Wait a minute, what am I saying, I have a leftover stuffed pepper this morning! LOL Reply

    Another fabulous and helpful video! Thanks so much for all your hard work. I tell everyone (with links!) about your site. Everyone loves it. I talk about you like we're friends, "Roni says..." blah, blah, blah. Then they say, "That's cool, who's Roni?" Reply

    These look amazing! I have tried your buternut squash fries but mine didn't come out with any crunch.. these look like I can get that crisp bite that potatoes get. Just wanted to thank you for being such an inspiration :) Jennie Reply

    Hi Roni. I love your sites. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and creativity with us. The recipes are great and easy. I'm not a fan of the WW website for recipes; too difficult to find certain things and some recipes are too difficult to make. I LOVE the frattata (which I just made for dinner!!!). I plan to make the sweet potatoes over the weekend. I've been on WW since the end of May and I've lost 63 lbs (plus I lost 30 lbs before starting WW after the birth of my second child for a total of 93 lbs.) I just made LifeTime today and plan to stick with it. STill have about 7 lbs to go to my ultimate goal. My big issue (besides exercising) is finding good foods to eat. Just wanted to thank you again for everything. I know everyone has said it, but you are a huge inspiration to us all. Hope you and your family have a wonderful New Year. Reply

    Hello. Awesome. I didn't have curry powder so I used garlic. So yummy. Thanks. Reply

    Made them tonight as well as the tilapia and they were fabulous. Mine weren't crunchy either, but I didn't care. I just need to add more curry next time. Thanks, Roni! Reply

    I made these tonight but I decided to cook without the curry. I just used some salt. Then I made a curry dipping sauce of 2 tbls. fat free sour cream and 1/2 tsp. curry powder. I enjoyed it, but honestly probably could have been perfectly happy with the potatoes plain, too. I am also so inspired by you Roni! I'm a good cook (so I'm told) but had lost my desire to come up with new, healthy, creative ideas. Your site has really helped me out! I can't thank you enough for that. Reply

    These are awesome! I used a little different spices....chili powder, garlic powder, and some onion powder. It gives a nice little spice to the sweetness..YUMMY!!! Roni...I have told so many people about you and this site! First time posting for me...But I am on the site ALL the time!!! You really are an inspiration. Thank you:) Reply

    I'm going to have to try this. I've always associated sweet potato with sweet so this would definitely be different. Like you I was late with the sweet potato too and when I did try it it had to have pecans or marshmallows on top. Then I tried baking in the microwave and sprinkling with pumpkin pie spice. So yummy!! Reply
