Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205C)
2 Sweet Potatoes - Peel and cut into fries sized lengths
(Use more or less sweet potatoes depending on how many you are cooking for and adjust the following accordingly)
1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin (optional)
Sea salt & pepper to taste
1 teaspoon approx.Corn starch - (optional)
In a large bowl toss the potatoes with the oil and spices until they are evenly coated.
If you want the baked sweet potato fries to be a little crispier, sprinkle the cornstarch into the mixture.
Use either a non-stick baking pan or parchment paper or a light coating of oil on a regular baking pan and arrange the sweet potato fries in a single layer.
Bake for about 15 minutes , then flip the fries so they will brown nicely on all sides. Bake another 10 to 15 minutes until they are nice and crispy.
You will know they are done when the surface of the fries change from shiny orange to a matte color and are puffed up in texture.
If you don't cook them long enough they will not be crispy.
They are delicious plain or you can serve with a creamy type dip of your choice or with ketchup.
Experiment with various dips, spices & herbs to your taste.
Hint: Garnet Yams are a good choice for sweet potato fries.
They are the ones with the red skin and bright orange flesh.
