Tips on how to make baked sweet potato fries
- Cut the sweet potatoes fries about 1/4 ” thick.
- Season simply with salt and olive oil, or add any other spice or herb you may like.
- We love the combination of sumac and oregano, but you can any spice, from add za’atar, to smoked paprika, garam masala, shawarma seasoning, thyme, and chili powder. The possibilities are endless!
- Always line your baking sheet with parchment paper, so the fries don’t stick to the pan.
- Bake the sweet potatoes in a single layer without crowding the pan. You want the sweet potato fries to caramelize, not steam.
- Bake them at 400F until caramelized. You can also broil them for 2-4 minutes, to get some additional crispy edges, but make sure to check them every minute because they can go from crisp to burnt in no time under the broiler.
- Serve our baked sweet potato fries with Black Bean Chili ,our Avocado Chickpea Salad or any of our veggie burgers.
- Slice sweet potatoes in rounds
- Cut them into French fries shape
- Add oil, salt and seasoning (if using)
