Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries are just better than normal fries. It’s a fact, validated by always having to pay extra $$$ to sub them for regular fries when eating out. Why do they always do that?

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Lucky for you, with this recipe you can make them at home!

Using a pound of sweet potatoes, “rough peel” them. By that I mean, peel off about half of the skin off each potato. I like to leave on some skin for extra texture. Then slice them into long skinny fries. The fries will be varying sizes depending on the size and shape of each sweet potato and that is fine!

Once they are all cut into fries, put them in a gallon-sized ziplock bag and toss them with coconut oil, cumin, coriander and dried cilantro. Bake until crispy and then sprinkle with sea salt.

While the fries are baking making the Honey Harissa Dipping Sauce – because what are fries without their dipping sauce? … potatoes, just potatoes…

The sauce is really easy to make! Mix harissa pasta, honey, lemon juice, crushed garlic and a little salt into plain greek yogurt. The sauce is a little sweet with a lot of spice which pair perfectly with the sweet potatoes!

For best results serve the fries hot, immediately out of the oven and the dipping sauce cold!

      Hi Carole, I’m so glad you enjoyed the fries! I’m sorry you found the ads frustrating. I do have a “jump to recipe” button at the top of all of my recipe posts that makes it easier to find the recipe quickly. Please remember that all of my recipes are free for you to view, but they take a lot of time and effort to develop and photograph. Unfortunately, without ads I do not make income and cannot continue to put out quality content.
