Delicious Healthy Microwaved Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries

The sweet potato fries are very similar to regular potato fries. However the health benefits are tremendous. Eat it they way you would eat regular fries.

Note: Microwaves differ in the wattage. Therefore it is not possible to give you an exact cooking time. It is best to go for about 8 minutes, then test if the sweet potatoes need more cooking. You will soon find a time that works for you.

The link below is the website where I found useful information on the, The Goodness of Sweet Potatoes. Below is an extract from that site.

Sweet potatoes are low in sodium, cholesterol free, fat free, high in fiber, contain minerals and vitamins A, C and E. Sweet potatoes are also more nutritious if cooked with the skin on. They are also rich in beta-carotene (a special kind of vitamin A). This vitamin helps your body wage war against free-radicals. Free-radicals try to damage your cells, but beta-carotene coats your cells and help your immune system fight back.
