Simple Sweet Potato Oven Fries
Makes about 4 servings
2 pounds sweet potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon fine grain sea salt
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Peel the sweet potatoes, slice them lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick slices, then cut the slices into 1/2-inch wide strips.
3. Put the strips in a large bowl and toss them with the olive oil. Then add the sea salt and smoked paprika and toss them to coat. I find that using my hands for this step ensures more even coating.) Spread the strips in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet, being sure not to overcrowd them. (I used two large baking sheets for this job.)
4. Bake the strips in the preheated oven until they are tender and golden brown, turning them occasionally so that they bake evenly, about 20 minutes.
