Sweet Potato Fries

This is the first time I tried making sweet potato fries and we were totally in love with it. I adopted the recipe from here. These are good since they are baked and have a natural sweetness and a little spiciness. You can add any herbs and spices according to your liking. They serve as a great appetizer and also a good snack to munch on!

Ingredients

Sweet potatoes - 2

Olive oil -2 teaspoons

Dried Oregano - 1 teaspoon

Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon

Salt and pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Peel the sweet potatoes and chop them into long strips of about 3 inches long and about 3/4 inches thick. They tend to shrink while baking. So make sure they are thick.

In a bowl, combine together the spices and olive oil and toss in the chopped sweet potato fries until they are well coated.

Spread the sweet potatoes on a greased baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes turning them twice in between. 

Serve hot!

  15. Mmmm, I love sweet potato fries too! We like them julienned the way you did but also really like to cut the potatoes into cubes and just add olive oil, seasalt and a few chili flakes.

    They're great with jerked chicken and/or curries, don't you think?
