Sweet Potato Fries

We turned to a very easy classic for dinner tonight, a grilled steak, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed spinach with slivers of garlic and sweet potato fries.  We grilled some New York Strips seasoned with Montreal Steak Seasoning since it was a beautiful day for outdoor grilling.  Since white potatoes are not recommended on our eating plan at the moment, I turned to sweet potatoes and decided to make fries which turned out great.  While the fries were baking in the oven, I sauteed the mushrooms and at the last minute I sauteed the spinach with the garlic.

Our menu for the day:
Breakfast - Protein Shake
Lunch - leftover Bolognese 

Sweet Potato Fries
Makes 2 servings

1 washed, skin-on, medium sweet potato, cut into 1/2" x 1 1/2" strips
3/4 tablespoon coconut or palm fruit oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a bowl, toss the sweet potatoes, oil, sea salt and paprika.

Place strips on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 to 28 minutes, depending on consistency desired.  Flip or toss the fries about every 5 to 6 minutes to cook evenly.
