These are delicious simply tossed with olive oil and sea salt and roasted until crisp.  If your potatoes are small, consider dicing them instead of cutting into strips – the results will be equally tasty!  Also, they may be pale in color when you first peel them, but they will turn a rich deep purple as they cook.

Ingredients:

2 large purple Okinawa sweet potatoes
