Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line sheet tray with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Wash and scrub sweet potatoes to clean and remove dirt. Leave skin on and cut into 1-inch slices. Take each slice and cut into sticks (about 1 inch by 1 inch by 4 inches). Set aside.
  3. Mix together the Extra Virgin Olive Oil and red wine vinegar in a medium to large bowl.  Add the sweet potato sticks and toss in the oil and red wine vinegar until thinly coated. Add salt, oregano, and pepper if using. Toss again, making sure the sweet potatoes are well coated with the seasonings.  Spread the fries onto the prepared sheet tray, in a single layer. Do not overcrowd or they won''t get crisp.
  4. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until tender. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Chef Tips

Cut the fries into similar size and shapes so they cook evenly. Feel free to add extra seasoning as desired.

For less fiber, peel the potatoes first.

  1. With regular potatoes, the general advice is to lightly boil (up to 8 mins) before putting them in the oven; does that apply for sweet potatoes as well? Thanks!

    1. It does! Pre-cooking potatoes helps give them that restaurant-style crispiness. And obviously cuts down on the amount of time it spends in the oven 🙂
