Purple Sweet Potato Fries

purplesweetpotatofries1I LOVE sweet potatoes.  I have an unhealthy obsession with them.  I screamed at Whole Foods when I saw these purple sweet potatoes.  I’ve never seen or tasted purple sweet potatoes before.  I am happy to report that they are similar to the orange ones and are still a little sweet.  I love making sweet potato fries because they are the perfect accompaniment to any meal.  Whether I’m making a cheeseburger, grilled fish or steak, they are the perfect starch.  First, I preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  I peel the sweet potatoes and cut them in long strips.  I season them with kosher salt and extra virgin olive oil and bake on parchment paper for 15 minutes or until the fries are crispy.
