Tastier than traditional home-fried potatoes, and much more nutritious!
Serves: 6
  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 1-inch cubes.
  3. Rinse the potato cubes under cold water, drain well.
  4. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat.
  5. Toss the potato cubes with the melted coconut oil and spread in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until the potatoes darken in color and start to get tender, about 15 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar, turn to coat, and bake for 5 to 10 minutes more, until tender and starting to caramelize. Serve immediately.
To lower the Glycemic Index of the sweet potatoes, boil them until al dente after step 2. Drain, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Proceed with Step 4 when you prepare them for breakfast.
