Yes sir! but... you might wanna make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm my answer as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the Dukan Diet guys because they can help better...
Now, a bit about sweet potatoes before I fork over the recipe. According to Worlds Healthiest Foods, sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A and vitamin C - both powerful antioxidants. It also is considered an antidiabetic food, which means that it can stabilize blood sugar and lower insulin resistance..
Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries.
1 - 1 1/2 lb sweet potatoes.
1/4 cup olive oil.
1/2 tsp no salt (salt substitute).
1/2 tsp paprika.
1/4 tsp cinnamon.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (preferably the easy release kind)..
Peal the sweet potatoes. Cut into strips that are about 1/2 inch wide on each side..
Place the sweet potatoes into a sealable plastic bag. Add oil, salt, paprika and cinnamon. Seal the bag and shake well to thoroughly coat the fries. Spread the potatoes out onto the baking sheet in a single layer..
Cook for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. Transfer immediately to a paper towel lined plate and serve warm...
If you're looking for variety, try the zuchinni fries. I'm addicted. I will take those over regular fries any day of the week...
That sounds yummy.....do you make them the same as the sweet potatoes, just sliced, oiled, and oven baked?..
Here's one thread from an advanced search.
I dip mine in egg beaters, then lightly coat w/bread crumbs. People also use Heartsmart Bisquick, I just haven't gotten a chance to pick any up yet. But they are delicious!!..
I just buy bags of them at Trader Joe's. I try hard not to eat 2 servings...
I make the baked sweet potato "fries" usually once a week. (not too much cuz they're starchy). I love having them with my chicken breast sandwich or burger because it seems like cheating...
Mmm, sounds good, but do you count the Eggbeaters and crumbs/HS Bisquick toward anything (or do you not use enough since you're just coating everything)? This sounds like a nice alternative to just the "plain" fries (zucchini) I've been eating. THANKS!!..
I think that the calories are so low, I don't count it for anything. Maybe you could count the calories as a free food? Not enough sticks to really do any damage..
Since 1/3 cup of yams is a carb serving and sweet potatoes/yams don't count as vegetables, how are there enough in 1/3 cup to eat/make as french fries? That's a TINY bit of yam...LOL Just wondering...
Wait, I might be behind the times but we can have sweet potato as a veggie???????? OMG!!!!..
Or egg plant fries, I've had these at a couple of restaurants now!..
Where are people seeing that sweet potatoes/yams are vegetables? I'm confused...
Darn! I was going to try sweet potatoe fries next! It never dawned on me that sweet potatoes weren't listed as "okay".
That's your job Pam. To keep us in check..
I thought 1/3 cup counted as 2 veggies just like the butternut squash. Am I wrong?..
I just make believe they are veggies. I love them and I try not to eat a double portion. Once every week or two can't hurt. I make them because my DH will eat some, a few. He eats no carbs, and is too thin...
OOOOH happy bubble bursted, oh well glad I didn't have/buy any yet.....
