Spicy Sweet-Potato Oven Fries

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.

Category: Side Dishes



2 large unpeeled sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds)

1 T olive oil

1 t ground cumin

1 tsp onion powder

pinch of cayenne

OR 2 tsp chili powder or any "cajun spice blend" - whatever you prefer

1/4 t black pepper

Vegetable cooking spray



Clean potatoes, cut into french fry strips (1/4-inch by 1/4 inch).

Combine oil, cumin, cayenne and pepper (or whatever spices) in a large mixing bowl.

Add potatoes and toss well to coat.

Arrange on a single layer on a baking sheet coated with vegetable cooking spray. (I like the "Olive Oil Pam").

Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Flip potatoes over, and bake for another 10-15 minutes until browned.

Additional Comments:



- Flavor is best if potatoes are well coated when tossing with oil and spices.

- When spreading the potatoes on the baking sheet their sides can touch, but its best if they don't overlap.
