Meatless Monday – Healthy (!) fries

Who doesn’t like French fries?  Crispy, salty and utterly delicious, but if I eat too many they go straight to this Jewish girl’s hips.  Here is a healthy kid-approved version for Sweet Potato Fries  from my favorite cookbook Vegan with a Vengeance.  Believe me, they are just as satisfying as the real thing without packing on the lb’s (and they’re good for you too! )

Sweet Potato Fries

2 large unpeeled sweet potatoes, cleaned and cut into strips lengthwise

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground coriander

¼ teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 425.  Lightly grease a large rimmed baking sheet.  Combine oil, cumin, coriander, and pepper in a large mixing bowl.  Add the potatoes and toss well to coat.  Arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet .  Bake for 15 minutes .  Flip potatoes over and bake for another 10-15 minutes.
