Oven Sweet Potato Fries

November 6th, 2007

These are so yummy I almost can’t believe they’re the healthiest food ever! Sweet potatoes are SO good for you, and this is such a better way to prepare them than coating them with butter, sugar, or marshmallows. These make a great late-night snack, and they don’t take very long to prepare at all. They look a little like carrot sticks when they’re all cut up, but once they’re cooked, their color and flavor get so much richer. Leave the skins on if you want less color, more fiber.

Oven Sweet Potato Fries

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled
1 tsp black coarse sea salt (you thought it was pepper, didn’t you?)
1 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise into thin strips, and place on a baking sheet.
3. Sprinkle olive oil, sea salt, onion salt, paprika and garlic powder, and toss to coat thoroughly.
4. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until “fries” are soft and delicious.

Serves 4.

    After making these, I literally thought to myself, “where have these been all my life?!?”  I could have saved myself from eating so many bags of chips in law school…

    Strangely enough, I fell in love with sweet potato fries when I was living out in Cleveland.  One of my favorite restaurants – Max’s Deli in Rocky River – offered them with a side of cinnamon sugar.  So good!

    do these come out crispy?  I have never had a crispy sweet potato fry!  I don’t know if the water content is too high or what!  I made beer battered butternut squash “fries” once and achieved the texture I was looking for (crunchy on the outside soft and gooey in the middle)!

    YUM!!! I also tried a sweet variation: sprinkle the fries with cinnamon and sugar. Then after they are done cooking, drizzle with honey!

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we
    could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested
    feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Terrific blog by the way!
