Sweet potatoes are amazing for multiple reasons, it’s low on the glycemic index and makes the best fries! They pair perfectly with burgers, but are also a great snack on their own.

I’ve been making sweet potato fries for so many years now that I think I could do it in my sleep. Albeit they don’t look like this every time, they always taste great!

This recipe is also great because it utilizes the oven rather than a deep fryer, thus reducing the amount of added fat.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • ½ tbsp avocado oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp dried parsley

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400oF.
  2. Cut your sweet potato in half width-wise, then into ¼“ thick sticks. (You can cut them into the thickness you prefer, keeping in mind that the thicker they are, the more time they will take to cook).
  3. In a large bowl, toss the sweet potato in the oil and spices.
  4. On a lined baking sheet (preferably parchment or a silicone baking sheet), spread the fries out in 1 even layer, ensuring that none of the fries are touching or overlapping – this will prevent them from becoming soggy!
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown and tender.
  6. Serve with ketchup or aioli!
