Who can resist sweet potato fries? Not this girl! Whenever there is a combo of sweet and salty – I’m eating it. I love keeping sweet potatoes in the house this time of year to throw in the oven for my version of “fries.” Sometimes I’ll even cube them up small and cook them the same way. Either way they’re always fantastic.
1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into thin fry-size pieces
1-2 tablespoons red palm oil (or coconut oil, duck fat or ghee)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon maple syrup
few dashes of cinnamon, sea salt, pepper, cumin and all spice
Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl until sweet potatoes are coated. Scatter onto a cookie sheet and throw into oven. Check back in 10 minutes and give them a good flip. Check back in another 10 minutes and flip again. Check every 5 minutes after this until they are soft enough to stick a fork through, and they should be starting to brown. If you like they a bit crispier, keep them in a little longer. (Timing for these totally depends on your oven). Serve with organic ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce. ENJOY!
