Oven-Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

Among the healthiest unhealthy things you can make. These are a nice balance to having a salad.

Speaking of which, I wish I could say this was less labor and time-intensive than the salad, but it’s not :( Still, though, I have several family members vouching for their deliciousness so it was well worth my time making them.

I’m writing down a half recipe from the original, which made a HUGE batch.

  • 2 medium garnet yams
  • 1-1.5 tbsp neutral cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Peel and slice the yams lengthwise into 1/2 inch thick slabs, and cut each slab into 1/2 inch thick strips.

Stir the oil, salt, paprika and garlic powder in a large bowl to blend.  Add the sweet potatoes and toss to coat.

Arrange them on the baking sheet, making sure not to overcrowd them.  Bake until they are golden brown, about 30 minutes.  Allow 5 minutes to cool, and enjoy.
