Baked Sweet Potato Fries
WARNING: you may become addicted to these! I've put a healthy twist on my favorite food-french fries. Fall is the perfect season for sweet potatoes and yams. Try this recipe for sweet and spicy sweet potato fries. They are baked, but still crispy and every bit as delicious as traditional french fries! They would make a delicious side dish for the holidays!
I have made these several times and recently updated the recipe. I find that leaving the skins on and cutting them into wedges (not thin strips) works the best! Please follow all the tips below so you'll have crispy (not soggy) fries that don't stick!
Ingredients: Use organic ingredients whenever possible!
* For extra crispy fries, you can lightly toss them in corn starch before drizzling with oil and skip the agave.
*When you wash the potatoes, it is important that you dry them very well before putting on the oil and seasonings! Otherwise, your fries will be very soggy! Make sure you leave space between each wedge and turn them every 10 min. because the sugars in sweet potatoes will cause them to stick and burn easily. You may have to make them in batches or use two pans. But it's VERY important not to overcrowd them! I learned my lesson with that. Wedges + Skin + Space = Perfectly Crispy Sweet Potato Fries!
