Another health blogger trend right now is sweet potato fries. At first I thought that sweet potato and savory spices wouldn’t go together but I was wrong. I gave them a try the other day as a snack food for movie night. I loved them and will definitely make them again. This recipe is not that exact as I tend not to measure what I add unless I am trying someone else’s recipe. These will definitely be a repeat. I am actually planning on making another flavor today.
Sweet Potato Fries
2 large sweet potatoes or several small ones
1-2 tablespoons of the oil of your choice (I had to use regular cooking oil as I am out of olive oil)
1-2 dashes garlic powder
1-2 dashes oregano
1-2 dashes thyme
1 dashes basil
1-2 dashes salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Cut your sweet potatoes into your desired size (I think I will do wedges next time). Some people peel the fries and some don’t. As you can see I didn’t. If you have a slightly deep dish, lightly oil it and put the fries in a heap in the middle. If you are using a flat baking pan put the fries in a mixing bowl. Drizzle the fries with the oil, mix, add the spices and toss. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until they are a little brown and soft inside.
Next time I am going to make them with taco seasoning on them. Yum!
