Nutrition for Runners: Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges


I came across this recipe last week. I had some sweet potatoes to cook with the salmon we were having for dinner. Having a little more time on my hands since I was home from work with a sick kid I looked for something a little more exciting than just boiling or baking the sweet potatoes. I came across this recipe for oven roasted sweet potato wedges.

I was sceptical when I first came across this recipe because I have tried to make healthier versions of sweet potato fries before and they always came out soggy. I have to say I was really impressed with how they turn out. Unlike my previous attempts these ones actually came out of the oven crispy, especially the side that got the most cooking time.

My kids loved them too which is always a plus. We already made the recipe twice. It really is not hard to make. The longest part is chopping the sweet potatoes. I will definitely keep this recipe in mind when we have sweet potatoes in the kitchen.
