- 2 large sweet potatoes washed and thoroughly dried*
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil organic canola, safflower, or grapeseed oil
- Sprinkle of salt
- Optional seasonings use just one: Chipotle chili powder, rosemary, cumin, cinnamon, garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, then into 1/2 inch strips—this will create wedges; if you want your fries matchstick shaped, cut strips in half.
- Parcook the fries in the microwave for 15 seconds (without added liquid) to speed cooking time in the oven.
- Toss the sweet potatoes with oil (additional oil will make for a crispier fry, but also add extra fat—make sure they are at least coated), sprinkle wedges with salt and spices, if using, and spread in a single layer on a sprayed baking sheet.
- Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, or until brown.
- *Leave the skins on for extra fiber
