Friday Night Fries

Sweet potatoes are a deceptive little bunch. They aren’t even really potatoes. In fact, in all of their orange, sweet, comforting goodness, they pack a nutritional punch that puts Yukon Golds and Russet Reds to shame.Who doesn’t love Vitamin A and fiber? C’mon, now.

Eat these babies as often as you want. These fries are your new, lifelong friend. Promise.

Cumin-Spiced Baked Sweet Potato Fries

serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 sweet potato, washed
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • cumin

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 425*.
  • Slice your sweet potato in half lengthwise. Then slice each half across the middle and slice 1/4″ thick lengthwise slices from each half.
  • Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle of kosher salt, and a very generous 1/4 teaspoon of cumin.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Simple? Yes. Simple enough for a Friday night, even. Tasty? You bet.
