Summer is right around the corner and so is barbecue season! Nothing goes better with a grilled veggie burger than some homemade sweet potato fries! These fries are so cheap and easy to make you will never buy the ones in the freezer case again!
The first trick to making your own sweet potato fries: don’t buy sweet potatoes, buy jewel yams. Confusing, I know. I think it’s because nobody would order “yam fries” in a restaurant.
Use as many yams as you want, the recipe below is for each yam. Multiply as needed! I find I can easily eat one yam all by myself!
1 jewel yam
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
You can also experiment with other seasonings like:
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
Preheat oven to 425. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
Peel the yams and slice them into “French fry” sized pieces. Put the yam in a large mixing bowl, add the oil and desired spices. Combine using your hands.
Spread the fries out on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip the fries and bake for 10-15 more minutes until browned.
