Spicy oven baked sweet potato fries are a delicious, satisfying, and healthier alternative to the standard deep-fried French fry.
- 1 tbsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp oil + drizzle (we use olive or macadamia nut)
- 2 medium size sweet potatoes (about 16 oz total)
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Cover baking sheet with foil (for easy clean up) or skip this step. Drizzle a little olive oil onto baking sheet and wipe with a paper towel to coat evenly.
We like to coat the baking sheet, as well as, add a thin coating of oil on the fries themselves, to ensure that they do not stick (without having to add massive amounts of oil).
In a small bowl, mix spices together with a fork. Set aside.
Cut sweet potatoes into ½” x ½” fries. We slice the potato stick in half as well if the potatoes are really long. We also leave the skin on, for nutritional purposes and for the extra crispiness.
In a large bowl, combine the cut potatoes and oil, and toss with one hand. With your other hand, add the spice mixture a sprinkle at a time, and continue to toss until the potatoes are evenly coated.
Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet and place on the middle shelf of the oven.
Bake until edges are crisp and potatoes are cooked through -- about 15-20 minutes.
