Sweet potatoes, as you know are my one true love in life, so I try to find different ways to eat them. Roasting them is probably one of my favorites, they are so great with seasonings, or just plain. Also, they make for a great transportation for dip to my mouth. Yumm!
I encourage you, if you try this recipe, to experiment with different seasonings.
Some of my suggestions are:
Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
Chili powder, cumin, paprika
Garlic, rosemary, sea salt, pepper
but definitely let your inner chef take control, and try whatever it’s telling you!
Wash/scrub your beautiful potatoes….and f.y.i. all of these potatoes were less than TWO DOLLARS!?!
Cut your potatoes in either sticks, like I did, or cubes. Try to keep them the same size so they can evenly cook.
LIGHTLY spray your soon to be fries with olive oil spray, or even better, coconut oil spray.
Season those babies up! Use whatever types of seasonings your heart desires, and use as much or as little as you’d like. I used the Roasted Garlic & Herb seasoning by McCormick, and I think it made them taste quite similar to Arby’s curly fries….but then again, it’s been a while since I’ve tasted an Arby’s curly fry..
Give them a shake, gently shake the pan to get all the fries seasoned…or you can just use your hands to move them around.
Put them in the oven (425 degrees) I usually leave them in there for around ten to fifteen minutes, depending on how small I cut them. But just keep checking on them every five minutes to make sure they don’t burn. I like my fries super crispy, so I leave them in a little longer, but if you like yours not as crispy, then take them out sooner.
Let your fries cool off, if you can wait that long…
Enjoy your delicious fries! I made these for my sister, along with some homemade mac and cheese (which will be featured in an upcoming post….so keep a look out!).
Also, she wanted to dip hers in ranch, and I dipped mine in salsa. You could also use hummus, or balsamic vinegar, or really anything you’d like to dip them in….or just enjoy them by themselves.
