Homemade Sweet Potato Fries

017Homemade Sweet Potato Fries

Ingredients
  • 1 tsp ground cumin (divided)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (divided)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne red pepper (divided)
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil (divided)
  • 2 large (about 1 1/2 pounds) sweet potatoes
Steps
  1. Prepare the sweet potatoes: In a small bowl, combine half of each spice – cumin, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Peel potatoes, if desired, and cut into wedges. In a large bowl, combine the cut potatoes, 1 tsp oil and spice mixture. Toss until potatoes are evenly coated.
  2. Bake the fries: On a non-stick baking sheet, arrange potatoes in a single layer and place on the middle shelf of the oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile mix the remaining spices and oil to create a glaze. Drizzle glaze over sweet potatoes and bake for another 15 minutes, or until edges are crisp and potatoes are cooked through. Serve immediately.
