French fries with zero grams of fat? That’s the magic of oven-baking and using creative, healthy substitutions for the usual heavy oils. In this recipe, sweet potato wedges are tossed with pure vanilla and a light sprinkling of cinnamon, then baked to crispy, chewy perfection. Not only are they packed with fiber, vitamin C and potassium, an entire serving contains just 144 calories!

1 large egg white (beaten lightly)
½ tsp. vanilla extract
