While sweet potatoes are insanely delicious, they also supplying a wide arrange of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and blood-sugar-regulating nutrients. High in the antioxidant vitamin C, sweet potatoes are an excellent immune boosting addition to your meal. Another delicious antioxidant found in the orange coloured vegetable is beta-carotene. In the body, beta-carotene converts to vitamin A – a healing nutrient for the skin and the digestive system. When it comes to regulating blood sugar levels, the sweet potato has its fibre content to thank for that. One medium sweet potato contains about 6.6 grams of dietary fibre.
Alright, here’s the secret ingredient for Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries. Brown rice flower. Yep, that simple. A light coating of brown rice flour creates the perfect crispy coating. I also soak my sweet potatoes before coating them – this step makes a huge difference.
