RECIPE: Roasted Purple Okinawa Sweet Potato Fries
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.
