This month Joy Bauer’s recipe contribution comes from her Celiac Disease Recipes Collection. Low in fat and sodium, this gluten free sweet potato fries recipe is absolutely delicious without a thing added to them besides a little olive oil cooking spray. We found them a welcome change in our gluten free dinner menu. Fries don’t have to be crispy and drenched in oil to taste great. If you haven’t made them yet, I’m sure you’ll agree. Thank you again, Joy for your healthy gluten free recipes.

An easy low-fat, low-sodium sweet potato fries recipe from Joy Bauer's Celiac Disease Recipe Collection.
- 2 medium potato(es), sweet, (about 8 ounces each)
- cooking spray, olive oil-flavored*
- Salt, Kosher, (optional)
- Pepper, black, (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a large baking sheet with oil spray. Slice off the ends of the potatoes and cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half into wedges or strips (approximately ¼-inch thick). Spread the fries out in a single layer on the baking sheet and spray liberally with oil spray. Sprinkle the fries with salt and pepper (and any other optional seasonings like curry, cinnamon, chipotle chili powder, cumin, etc.).
- Bake the fries for 20 minutes, flipping them halfway through. To finish, set the oven to broil and broil for 5+ minutes (depending on how brown and crispy you like your fries).
