Fat Free and Fabulous French Fries
These natural, fat free fries are so good! I used yams and purple potatoes to make them with.YUM! The purple potatoes are slightly sweeter and creamier than traditional white potatoes and more nutritious and they don't spike your sugar as quickly . I dip them in a natural, agave sweetened ketchup that has no added colors or preservatives to keep it really healthy. The kids (that includes my teens) LOVE them and eat them up. Both the yams and purple potatoes are super good for you and have a large amount of beta carotene in them which helps aid in the reduction of night blindness and other eye problems as well as an aid in cancer preventions among other things. They contain high amounts of vitamin C, Potassium, magnesium, protein, vitamin B-6, calcium and is high in fiber . As an added bonus for women of a certain age it helps reduce menopause symptoms!
For these fries you can use any kind of potato you want. You can chose from standard Russet potatoes, the smooth and creamy Yukon Gold, Red, or Purple potatoes. You can even do Yams, Sweet Potatoes or fingerling too.
