Trendy Side: Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet potato fries are totally having a moment. They're a more festive alternative to regular russet potatoes and don't necessarily have to be fried. This particular variation is baked in the oven and are seasoned with a soy chili oil before being placed in a pan. They are a lovely companion to roast meats and poultry and they jazz up the classic burger. They would also be wonderful as an appetizer at a holiday cocktail party. Take a look at the recipe now, just

I was a nanny for triplets and made sweet potatoe fries for them all the time because they all three kids had a sweet tooth and it was a struggle to get them to eat their veggies! They loved them!! All you moms and nannys out there, write this one down, kids love them!

Mmmm... These are sooooo good! I used to go this restaurant in Berkeley and their signature fries were delicious! It was a combination of sweet potato, taro root and regular potatoes. You brought back mems of my younger years. Sigh!
