Total Time30 mins
Course: Side Dish, Snack

Ingredients

  • 1 pound (1/2 kilo) sweet potatoes peeled and cut
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves chopped
  • 1 tsp rosemary leaves minced
  • 1 tsp sage leaves chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano leaves chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced (or ½ tsp garlic powder)
  • Sea salt to taste

Instructions

  • Wash sweet potatoes under cold water and peel the skin off. Then cut sweet potatoes in fingers (approx. 1/4″ wide) and wash under cold water (to remove any skin leftovers).
  • In a large mixing bowl, add olive oil, all herbs (if fresh finely minced), garlic and salt and mix until all potato fingers are well coated on each side. Set aside and leave for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, place empty non-stick baking sheet/pan in oven and preheat for 10 min. on 200 C/ 400F. If you do not have non-stick sheet, cover your oven pan with aluminum foil and let preheat for 10 minutes (works like a charm!).
  • After 10 minutes, carefully take out hot baking sheet from oven and toss all seasoned sweet potato fingers onto the sheet (if using foil, do not remove it rather toss over the foil). Distribute evenly and return in oven until potatoes are cooked (approx. 15-20 min in my oven) on 200 C/ 400F.
  • Once cooked (I check with fork), let cool slightly and serve while still warm.

Notes

VARIATIONS: If you do not have fresh herbs on hand, dried herbs and garlic powder work as well. I personally prefer using the Provence Mix. If you are not feeding young kids, a fiery hot pepper mix will fit perfectly to these oven-baked fries as well.
No flipping required for this method of cooking.
