I first came to know about these baked sweet potato fries in Shaz( feeding my kids better) blog. So simple and sounded delicious. The good thing is you can put in whatever seasoning you like such as black pepper, paprika, garlic salt, cinnamon, etc. These are baked in an oven till crispy but dont expect it to be as crispy as french fries and it is soft on the inside. It's nice to eat after it has cooled down but dont let it sit for too long as there were a few pieces left that got a little harder after an hour or so. I've used cinnamon and sugar as seasoning and after baking, sprinkle with a small pinch of salt. Great for snacking! Initially i bought these purple sweet potatoes intention to make angkoos kuih , then i got a little lazy so i changed my mind and made this. You can use other variations of sweet potatoes.
here's what i did..
Preheat oven to 190C. Cut 3 small sweet potatoes into about 1/4 inch strips and in a large bowl, toss them over with some olive oil and season them with some cinnamon plus sugar, about 2tsp each. Bake them for about 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fries , turning them over and return to bake for another 10 minutes or until they are tender. You can go with any dip if you like..that's sour cream you see in the picture.
