-Hi, I'm Miranda, and today I'm gonna show you how to make fat free sweet potato fries. Now, this totally fat free fries boast a zesty little spice mix that coats his homemade fries. I definitely recommend serving it with burgers for dinner. You have a lovely little who [unk]. I have our ingredients all laid out here, so let's keep cooking. So, I have sweet potatoes here. I have 2 medium sweet potatoes about a pound each. So, I scrub the potatoes and cut them each lengthwise into 4 quarters and then cut those quarters into 4 equal wedges, have them here in this nice baking dish. I lightly coated it with cooking spray, and then over here, we have that yummy spice rub I was talking about. So, we have 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon of chilli pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of paprika, and then 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper, and over here I have some fat free cooking spray that we're just gonna give it a little spray with that again because remember we're not cooking with any sort of like oil or butter, so this is what gonna get it nice and crusty yummy. So, my oven is behind me preheated at 425 degrees. Let's just put this to the side and combine all of our spices. It is so yummy and I love sweet potato fries. You know, it's compact carbohydrates, so it breaks down in your body, takes a longer time to break down in your body than like a simple carbohydrates like white potatoes. They are just delicious, that yummy kind of caramelized soup flavor can't get enough of that. Alright, so now this is all ready. Look at our pretty, pretty little [unk]. Now, I'm just going to lightly cook this with the fat free cooking spray so the spices have something to grab on to and I'm just gonna sprinkle the top now and you could just spoon if you wanted, but I'm just gonna get on in there with my fingers because I think it is easier. Look how pretty this looks, yum, yum, yum. Looking good, looking good, alright, fabulous. Okay, so, we're gonna pop this in the oven now, again for 425 degrees and we're gonna bake for about 20 minutes until they are lightly brown and I'm going to turn them once during that cooking process. So around minute 10, we're just go in and give them a nice little toss mixture. Everything is cooking evenly and we'll pull them out of oven in 20 minutes. Alright, so our fries baked for about 25 minutes exactly how e like them, so delicious, can wait to eat them as is or carry them with some burgers for dinner, but either way you're gonna love this fat free sweet potato fries.
