All Natural "FRY"-licious Sweet Potato UN-Fries =)

Submitted by: LOOKING4SKINNY

Introduction

I recently (10 days ago) went vegan (I occasionally slip slightly into the vegetarian side - no actual animal products but a few "health food" products with animal derivatives) from full-blown omnivore. I always thought I could go vegetarian if I wanted or wasn't influenced by those around me b/c I like a lot of things that, for example, many meat-devouring men (women, too), most kids, and most ppl in general just can't stand. Ex: I really like brussel sprouts and ppl hate it when I cook them when they're around - especially @ work!! I was inspired by "very meat-devouring" brother-in-law who went vegan June '09. His cholesterol dropped 100 points!!! So, I decided to get healthy and do it the "easy" and yummy way: just get rid of animals, eliminate soda (maybe occasional), and limit sugary sweets (that's the HARD one).

So, I'm studying overnight and my tummy's growling. So, what do I do? I headed to the cabinets, fridge, & freezer while ignoring everything that I didn't buy. Hmmm.... "I'll have 2 of these Garden Patty burgers, no bun, and, oh yeah, I need to use that sweet potato while it's still good and I wanted to make fries with it. So, I know, I'll make some fries w/ the burger patties." The RESULT is BELOW in yumm-alicious form:

**Very yummy, too!!

Ingredients

    Ingredients:
    1 - Medium (Avg) Sweet Potato
    "tajin" Fruit & Vegetable Seasoning, to taste
    Pam cooking spray, desired flavor / whatever's handy

    Hardware:
    Cookie sheet or shallow pizza pan
    Peeler
    Knife

    == (I got the "tajin" at Wal-Mart in produce dept. on one of those little shelf displays in front of & near end of the stand or shelving they put the produce on. Look hard where they put other seasonings, mixes, etc.)

Directions

Wash & peel sweet potato.

Cut into strips of desired size;
(bigger than fry, smaller than wedge cooks up better)

Spray cookie sheet / pan with cooking spray, 1.5-2 seconds.

Spread strips apart in single layer.

Spray strips with cooking spray, 1.5-2.5 seconds.
*enough to coat so seasoning will stick

Sprinkle with desired amount of tajin (or other seasoning of choice).

Place in center of middle rack in oven.

Bake @ 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, depends on oven.

*Mine was 50 minutes (got distracted by Spark) and the smaller ones burned but really thick ones are very good. So, check often after 30 minutes (no checking needed until then) and most likely no more than 45 minutes

Enjoy! They are absolutely, delish!!

**Makes 1 serving (2 if you have a small appetite).
