I've been on a sweet potato kick recently. Baked sweet potato fries is my go to starch. The sweet potato is nutrition laden carbohydrate that is gluten free and relatively inexpensive. To mix it up I found a recipe from Anne Burrell on foodnetwork.com. I first read about Anne in Bill Buford's book Heat. She was/is a sous working under Mario Batali. Now, of course, she has a tv show, possibly a book or two, and is popping up under popular search engines with recipes for sweet potatoes.
