Sweet Potato Fries


Last weekend my aunt and I made sweet potato fries that were absolutely delicious. The sweet potatoes were from her local farmer’s market. I love farmer’s markets! It is great to actually know where your food is from and they always have a homey feel to them.

You will need the following ingredients:

4 medium sweet potatoes
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Here is our recipe for sweet potatoes fries:
1. Set oven for 375⁰ and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2. Peel potatoes, then cut them into fry-like slices. (Sweet potatoes are very hard to cut so be careful! Watch your fingers!)
3. Put potatoes slices in bowl and toss with 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
4. Add in 2 teaspoons of cumin, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Toss all ingredients together.

5. Spread slices on baking sheet.
6. Bake for about 20 minutes, flip slices at 10 minute mark.
7. Enjoy 🙂


Hope you enjoy these fries! They are a great substitute for the greasy fast food ones and work well as a side or an appetizer. Enjoy the rest of your holidays!

    I’ve heard orange foods are high in beta carotene. But I don’t remember why that is good for you. You wrote great descriptive steps for this recipe.
