Sweet Potato Fries

5 from 2 reviews

An easy recipe for sweet potatoes fries using only a touch of oil.


  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt, cumin powder, chili powder, ground black pepper (optional)


  1. Cut the potatoes into matchsticks – about 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick.
  2. Toss the sweet potatoes with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle sea salt on top. You can use all kinds of seasoning to play with the flavors here. I like to add a little cumin and chili powder and plenty of ground black pepper!
  3. Cover a baking tray with aluminum foil and spread the sweet potatoes, laying flat. You may need two baking trays for this. Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping them over halfway through.


You can keep the leftovers in an airtight storage container, refrigerated. To reheat, microwave for 1-2 minutes, or bake in the oven on low (175 ºF) for about 10 minutes.
