Sweet potato fries are crispy and delicious. These baked french fries are a far healthier choice when compared to fried, and they are super simple to make. Combine them with these Vegan Chicken Burgers or a Chickpea Salad Sandwich for the ultimate cozy meal.
By the way, if you love sweet potato as much as I do, you don’t want to miss this incredible collection of healthy sweet potato recipes.
But for now, let’s get to the fries!
How do you make sweet potato fries?
To make my fries, I use a Nicer Dicer french fry cutter to cut my sweet potatoes into uniform french fries. However, you may use any french fry cutter you like. If you don’t have a french fry cutter, you may also cut these by hand with a large knife. Just try your best to get your french fries as uniform as possible for even cooking time.
When baking your fries, make sure you spread them into a single layer for optimal cooking and crispiness. If they are too crowded, use two baking trays to spread them out a little.
If your fries are not crisping up as much as you’d like, you can stick them under the broiler for 5 minutes or so towards the end of cooking. Just watch carefully to make sure they don’t burn.
Want a dipping sauce for your sweet potato fries? Quickly whip up some Cayenne Spicy Dip for a nice kick of heat to each bite. Or opt for some dijonaise, my favourite. I just mix Vegenaise with a little mustard!
