I’ve always loved substituting regular fries with yam fries when I eat out because I find them more flavourful and hearty. Did you know that it is incredibly easy to make these at home?! I didn’t until recently!
All you need are a few yams, 2 tablespoons of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), sea salt and cracked black pepper. Easy eh?
You first cut the yams up into strips (I like to leave the skin on), rub them with olive oil, then sprinkle the salt and pepper and arrange them on a baking sheet.
Bake them for approximately 20 minutes in the oven (400 degrees). If the fries are not soft to your liking, leave them in for a bit longer.
Trust me guys, these fries are DELICIOUS and so healthy!
Yams are a good source of energy and are only 118 calories per 100g. It also contains a good amount of Vitamin C, A, B, potassium, copper, iron, and antioxidants which will aid in night vision, maintaining healthy skin, immune function, anti-aging, wound healing, bone growth, and protection from lung and oral cavity cancers.
Hope you enjoy the recipe, and…
