Roasted Sweet Potato "Fries"

Here's a quick and easy way to cook sweet potatoes. These are not really all that French-fry like; they don't get nearly so crisp. However, they are very tasty.

2 servings
45 minutes - 15 minutes prep time

Roasted Sweet Potatoe Fries2 or 3 medium sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash the sweet potatoes, and trim off any bruised spots. Cut them into slices about 1 centimetre thick, or even slightly less. Cut each slice into further slices, lengthwise, about the same thickness to form the fries.

Put the oil in a shallow roasting pan. Toss the fries gently in it, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast the fries for 15 minutes. Turn the fries over, and roast for another 15 minutes.

Serve very promptly; because of their small size they will cool off fast.

Sweet potatoe fries are certainly delcious!! I love their slight sweetness which requires very little spice. I have never met a potato I didn't like!
