Sweet potato fries are typically healthier than their regular potato counterparts. Sweet potatoes contain vitamins A and C, as well as a high amount of potassium.
In this recipe, the sweet potato fries are topped with a unique jackfruit and apple slaw. Jackfruit is known for its subtle sweet taste, but also for how versatile it can be. The large fruit can be used for a variety of dishes, sweet and savory. Vegan and vegetarian eaters use the fruit as a substitution for meat due to its unique texture. What makes this fruit stand out is the high amount of protein it contains – more than three grams per cup.
