Creature(s) of Habit: Sweet Potato Fries

by Nadine on January 14, 2014

Every Tuesday, I make sweet potato fries.

Matthew has hockey on Tuesday evenings and insists on making his own pre-game meal — carefully measured pasta with a couple tablespoons of tomato sauce — so I get to indulge in my favourite comfort food without feeling guilty that I’m cooking selfishly. (Matthew doesn’t get as excited about sweet potatoes as I do. Weird.)

So even though my husband is out of town for a few days — Fun fact: this is our first time apart overnight since we got married almost two years ago! — I stuck to the food schedule.

Nadine’s Sweet Potato Fries
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 25 mins
Total time: 35 mins
Serves: 1 or 2
  • One large sweet potato
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Cinnamon
  • Nonstick spray
  • 1/3 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. Scrub sweet potato, cut into fries*.
  3. Toss potatoes in bowl with olive oil and a few shakes of ground cinnamon.
  4. Bake potatoes on baking sheet for 15-17 minutes.
  5. Take fries out of the oven, toss/stir, then bake for 10 minutes more.
  6. Eat with yogurt dip (see below).
  7. For dip, mix yogurt and mustard in small bowl. Serve on the side.

*Leave skin on. Peeling is tedious, unnecessary and robs you of the good stuff.


Next up: Kale chips. (It’s girl-friendly food week!)
