Sweet Potato Oven Fries
2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves of garlic crushed or minced
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
optional: 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
optional: 1/2 tablespoon chopped herbs such as rosemary thyme and oregano
Heat the oven to 400.
Cut the sweet potatoes into sticks 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long, and toss them with the oil.
Mix the spices, salt and pepper in a small bowl, and toss them with the sweet potatoes. Spread them out on 2 rimmed baking sheets.
Bake until brown and crisp on the bottom, about 15 minutes, then flip and cook until the other side is crisp, about 10 minutes. Serve hot.
