Full of flavor and the goodness of sweet potato – this is a quick and delicious side dish for busy weeknights.
1 very large sweet potato, peeled and cut into fry-shape
1/2 Tbsp. virgin coconut oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
zest of 1 lemon
Preheat oven to 425-degrees F and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread sweet potato slices onto pan in a single layer and bake for about 15 minutes. Turn slices and continue to bake until they are soft and beginning to brown.
While the sweet potato bakes, put the coconut oil in a deep skillet and add the garlic. Just before the fries are done, gently sauté the garlic in the oil until fragrant. Add the fries and stir, coating them with the oil and garlic. Remove pan from the heat and stir in the parsley and lemon zest.
