Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I love sweet potato fries. I often have them for dinner with a rando avocado dip of avocado smushed together with whatever else I have laying around. Usually coriander and lime, often some kind of spice, maybe some garlic.

That’s really all I’ve got to say about them. So on to the recipe.

Equipment

  • Oven
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment
  • Large bowl
  • Small bowl
  • Tea towel

Ingredients
  

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 T - 30 gr corn starch
  • 1 t - 5 gr cumin
  • 1/2 t - 2.5 gr chili
  • 1 t - 5 gr paprika smoked if you've got it
  • 1/2 t - 2.5 gr garlic powder
  • 2 T - 30 ml vegetable oil I use sunflower - avoid olive oil
  • pinch salt SET ASIDE

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat an oven to 225°C/ 435°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Wash the sweet potatoes and cut it into 50x50 mm - 2"x2" fries. The more evenly you cut them, the more even they will cook. So try and be tidy (or not).
  • I like to leave the skin on because I'm lazy and I like the added texture but feel free to add extra work if that's your thing and peel your potato before you cut it into fries.
  • Place the fries into a bowl of cold water and let them sit there while you mix your spices.
  • Mix the spices with the cornstarch. DO NOT ADD THE SALT.
  • Strain and towel dry the fries.
  • Place the dried fries back into the (dried) bowl, slowly drizzle with roughly 2 T - 30 ml of oil and mix together so all the fries are coated evenly. You may not need all of the oil.
  • Sprinkle your fries with a thin layer of the cornstarch/ spice mix, making sure the fries get evenly coated.
  • Place the fries on your baking sheet in a single layer. Make sure none of the fries are touching. Make sure your fries have breathing room or they won't crisp up.
  • Bake your fries in the oven for 30-45 minutes. Turn the fries every 10-15 minutes until they are crisp (or crisp enough, because well really now...). Remove smaller fries if they're done cooking sooner and have a little pre-nibble if you want.
  • Season your fries with salt before serving.

Notes

Times and temps may vary, depending on your oven. You'll have to test what works best for you.
