Giving odd-looking vegetables can be one of the hardest tasks as a mother (specially if your child has a sweet tooth). These sweet potatoes are healthier than french fries and they taste great with Ketchup. 2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 small) 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise, and place it flat side down on a cutting board. Cut the potato halves into 1-inch-wide wedges. 2. In a small bowl, combine the oil, chili powder, and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Place the potatoes on a roasting pan and brush with the oil mixture. Lay the potatoes flesh side down on the pan and put the pan in the oven. Cook until potatoes, turning once, until soft, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and season with remaining1/2 teaspoon salt. Let the wedges cool for a bit, and serve warm. For dunking, ketchup always works (at 15 calories per tablespoon), or try a squeeze of fresh lime juice for a British chips-and-vinegar effect. These are also great healthy snacks for adults.
