Alexia Sweet Potato Puffs

These crispy, sweet potato puffs take the guilt out of satisfying your spud craving. Unlike many frozen taters, these tots are made with canola oil, so they’re saturated and trans fat free. They’re curiously low in total fat too, with less than 4 grams per serving. Made from ultranutritious sweet potatoes, 2/3 of a cup contains 70% of your day’s immune-boosting vitamin A plus 2 grams of fiber, all for a respectable 130 calories. Pop them in a 400° oven and they’re table-ready in just 22 minutes.
