Sweet Potato Fries


Ah, it's Monday again, after all the holidays. Does it feel good, or does it feel like... Monday? Me, I'm not so sure.

We made these fries a few weeks ago, as part of a snack-y dinner. They were really good, particularly with the edamame dip I posted about earlier. Titus loved them too. You can totally adapt the seasoning of course - I'm a cumin fan, but I'm sure paprika or garlic would be great as well.

Sweet Potato Fries

3 medium sweet potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Peel the potatoes and cut into wide fry-like sticks. Put them in a plastic bag - add the olive oil and seasonings, and mix well.

Pour into a baking pan, and make sure you only have one layer. Bake at 200°C for 20-25 minutes. Give the fries a good shake after half that time.

I learned recently that yams are actually really great for women nearing or experiencing their period. Random, but I am eager to find creative ways to eat them besides just microwaving them. Yams and sweet potatoes both make excellent fries...

Anyway, thanks for the recipe! If you are ever interested in other random and helpful culinary advice, check out my blog
