Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons potato starch or cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil


Heat the oven to 400°F. Arrange 2 racks to divide the oven into thirds and heat to 400°F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper if desired.

Peel and cut the sweet potato. Peel the sweet potatoes. Cut in half lengthwise. Turn onto the cut side, then cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch wide planks. Lay the planks flat and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick sticks or wedges.

Coat the sweet potato in starch. Place the sweet potato in a large zip-top plastic bag or bowl, add the potato starch or cornstarch and salt, and shake or toss to combine until all the starch is absorbed into the sweet potato.

Coat the sweet potato in oil. Add the oil and toss vigorously to coat.

Transfer to 2 baking sheets. Divide the sweet potato among the 2 baking sheets and spread into a single, even layer, leaving space around each fry.

Roast. Roast until some of the fries are just starting to brown around the edges, about 15 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the oven. Using a flat spatula or turner, flip the sweet potatoes. Place back in the oven, switching the sheets between racks, and continue to roast until the fries are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside, 5 to 15 minutes more. They will crisp up a little more as they cool.

Season and serve. Sprinkle with more salt if desired before serving.
