Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries

Posted Jan 31 2013 7:00am

Fresh rosemary and sweet potatoes are a match made in heaven.

I first tried this tasty combo at a local restaurant, and now I’m hooked. Fresh rosemary elevates classic sweet potato fries to a whole new level of deliciousness! Plus, since these fries are baked, and not fried, you won’t have to deal with greasy fingers or heart burn later!


serves 2

Ingredients:

2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into fry shapes
1-2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
sea salt & pepper

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 425F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Soak the cut potatoes in cold water for at least 20 minutes, up to an hour if you have the time, to remove some of the starch content. (This helps make crispier fries!)

fries soak Drain and rinse well, to ensure the starch is removed, then pat dry with a towel, so that the resulting fries are nice and dry.

Transfer the fries to a clean bowl, and toss with the coconut oil and rosemary, using your hands or a spoon to coat evenly.

bake fries Arrange the fries into a single layer on the lined baking sheet, and bake at 425F for 15 minutes. For crispier results, be sure to leave some space between the fries, so they don’t sweat by being overcrowded.

After the 15 minutes, remove from the oven, flip them over using your fingers or a fork, then return to the oven for another 10 minutes, or until the fries are golden around the edges. Sprinkle immediately with a generous portion of sea salt and pepper, while the fries are still hot and glossy.
