Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Maple Dipping Sauce

  • 3 large sweet potatoes (peeled and cut into wedges, about 1 inch thick)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup plain low fat yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and place a sheet pan in the oven to heat up. In a large bowl, toss the sweet potato wedges with the olive oil, salt, spices and brown sugar. Remove the hot pan from the oven and pour the sweet potato wedges onto it.  Make sure they are spread out so they are not crowding each other. Bake for 10 minutes and then turn each wedge over.  Return to the oven for another 10 minutes, or until the wedges are tender when pierced with a fork. In a small bowl mix together the maple syrup and yogurt. When the sweet potatoes have cooled slightly, serve them with the dipping sauce…YUM!
