Sweet potato fries

These are so easy to make and are healthy-ish because they're baked instead of fried. The spices on these really bring out the unique flavor of the sweet potato. You can make these with orange fleshed sweet potato or yams too, if you'd like! These are what I could find at the store. The recipe is from "Oh She Glows". We ate these tonight for dinner with crispy breaded tofu.


1 large sweet potato, sliced into fries
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cumin
pinch of salt

1. Preheat oven to 400ºF and line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and grease.

2. Place the cut sweet potato with the rest of the ingredients in a gallon-sized plastic bag and seal tightly. Shake to coat evenly.

3. Spread out on the cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes then flip and bake for another 15-20 minutes. Carefully broil for another 5 minutes, watching to be sure they don't burn.

These were really delicious and were a perfect side to our crispy breaded tofu.
