Thick-Cut Sweet Potato Fries




Yield 2 servings



  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F
  2. Wash and dry your sweet potato, using a peeler to remove any imperfections you might not want to consume. You can remove all the skin if you so desire.
  3. Cut your potato into 1/2 inch thick strips. I like to start by cutting it in half vertically and horizontally. Then 1/2 inch slices, depending on the thickness each slice should make 3-4 fries. Just make sure they're all uniform.
  4. Transfer them to a large bowl with cold salted water. Let them soak for about 6 minutes.
  5. Drain the water and lay them out on a clean dish towel to dry.
  6. Toss them in a bowl with coconut oil and spices till fully coated. Lay them out on a parchment lined baking sheet, making sure to give them space.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes flip and 12-14 minutes to brown, (Broil as needed to crisp them up more).
  8. Remove them from the oven to cool.


If you want to make these extra crispy, toss them with a tbsp of arrow root powder or cornstarch.
