Cook the Book: Oven-'Fried' Sweet Potatoes
Last summer, I worked for the nonprofit Wellness in the Schools, where I helped to develop a nutrition program for NYC public schools. One of the dishes we promoted was sweet potato fries—a really great alternative to French fries, for both adults and kiddies alike. I'm sure I don't need to remind everyone of current childhood obesity stats, so I'm just going to push Mollie Katzen's recipe for oven-"fried" sweet potatoes from The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without. They are super simple to make, much better than a trip to the drive-thru, and your heart will beat a pitter-patter of thanks.
