A trend that I’m SO excited to see popping up at restaurants lately is a food that’s been a favorite of mine for years: sweet potato fries. They are SO delicious, and better for you than plain old russet fries since they’ve got antioxidants and beta carotene in them. But how do you get that amazing flavor at home? And how can you make them a little healthier than frying?
In your oven. And what’s even better, is that they are EASY.
Preheat your oven to 375*. First, you’ll need to cut it up. I go for a size a little smaller than ‘steak fries”.
Throw them on a baking sheet and toss them with a little oil, or just mist them with olive oil if you have a mister. Spread them in an even layer on the sheet. Let them bake for about 15 minutes, then stir them around a bit and redistribute. Continue doing this until they are soft and, if you desire, crisp on the outside.
Or you can take it one step further and toss them in some brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, cumin and a pinch of cayenne when they are hot from the oven for a sweet and savory treat!!
