Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring and these Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries with Yogurt Dipping Sauce prove that to be true!
Growing up in a family where meals were meat and potatoes, it’s been a tough transition to cutting carbs down! I’m also a big texture person when it comes to food, so I have to be strategic about cooking things that are good for me otherwise it makes me not like them!
Growing up in my family, the other part of food was growing our own food! We grow green beans, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, etc! While we don’t have room to grow a little bit of everything, my dad does and he loves to share, so sweet potatoes are easy to come by!
When I was in college I worked at a golf course one summer and they served the best baked sweet potatoes! I’m not sure how they prepared them and I’ve never been able to recreate them. They also served fresh whipped cinnamon butter with them and it was the perfect pair! So, the other day I was trying to figure out how to create a delicious sweet potato that I could enjoy! And that is how these cinnamon sweet potatoes with yogurt dipping sauce came to be!
- Sweet Potatoes
- Olive Oil
- 5.3 oz plain Greek yogurt
- 1½ tablespoon honey
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- For the fries:
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Begin by peeling the sweet potatoes and slice into wedges the or fries.
- Toss in olive oil and cinnamon
- Spread fries in a single layer on a foil covered cookie sheet.
- Bake for 15 minutes, flipping half way through cooking
- For the Dipping Sauce:
- Combine the Greek yogurt, honey, and cinnamon whipping together well and refrigerate until serving.
- *Since I’m typically the only ones that eat them, I prepare one sweet potato for a meal! For one sweet potato, I use about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
- The yogurt dipping sauce can be kept in the fridge for as long as the yogurt is good. Mark the expiration date on your container with a dry erase marker!
- If you don’t love cinnamon, then either omit the cinnamon on the potatoes or just reduce the amount.
- I like to broil the potatoes for just a couple of minutes before pulling them out of the oven to crisp them up just a little bit!
- I sliced my potato with a knife, but now that I’ll be making them more often, a frie maker like this one is on my Christmas list!
The sweetness of the sweet potatoe combined with the tartness of the yogurt dipping sauce is the perfect combo! Avoid feeling bored and mundane with your eating healthy with these fries and dipping sauce.
