Oven Baked Yam Fries Recipe

Photo Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

Yams or sweet potatoes offer a flavourful twist on traditional French fries.

4 servings

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
6 large yams or sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into strips
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
Coarse salt


Step 1: Preheat oven to 450°F. In a large bowl, drizzle oil over yams and toss to coat evenly. Add spices and toss to combine.

Step 2: On a greased baking sheet, place fries in a single layer leaving space between them so they get cripsy on all sides (you may need to bake in batches).

Step 3: Bake for 10 minutes, then flip fries over with a spatula. Bake for another 10. They should be tender on the inside and golden and crisp on the outside. Sprinkle with salt to taste and serve warm.
