Lasang Pinoy Sundays: STRIPS

SWEET POTATO FRIES – OVEN BAKED

kamotefries1

Sweet potato is another favorite at our house.  Nikita loves them mashed and mixed with her vegetables.  My husband likes them oven-baked. I like them deep fried.

I got so busy with class, party and daring bakers, I forgot about LaPis So for this late Lasang Pinoy Sundays entry, I made STRIPS of sweet potato (kamote) fries. I sprinkled these with chili powder before baking them in the oven.  They don’t really get sort of crunchy when baked (that’s why I like them fried!). They come out a little soft.  They are also great with parmesan cheese or cinnamon sugar.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and sliced into strips
  • 1 egg white, beaten until foamy
  • 1 tbs chili powder

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mix egg white and strips of sweet potato. Drain in colander for 5 minutes
  3. Sprinkle chili powder then place in parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until strips are browned and slightly crunchy.

Potatoes are just so versatile… fried, baked, boiled… always YUM!

I love a crispy sweet potato fry, but every once in a while it’s good to bake them. Yours look relatively brown and crisp even from the oven.
