Seasoned Sweet Potato Fries

I made these fries for dinner a few weeks ago and at long last I am posting them! Lots has been going on behind the scenes here at Hungermama HQ and we (yes, WE!) will have an announcement coming soon!

I made these to accompany a homemade fish and chips dinner. (I loosely based the fish on this recipe.) It all ended up being a  much bigger undertaking than I usually take on for a weeknight, but it was all SO yummy that I am likely to make it all again soon!

The original recipe for the fries can be found here. I love this recipe for the ice bath (which helps make them nice and crispy) and the awesome seasoning. They were so good!

Seasoned Sweet Potato Fries

Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 5 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil (not olive oil) -- I used rapeseed oil
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • salt to season

Instructions

1

preheat your oven to 225° C (435° F)

2

cut the sweet potatoes into thin, evenly sliced sticks (they need to be the same size so they cook at the same rate)

3

fill a bowl full of ice water, and place your sliced sweet potatoes in the water while you prepare your spices

4

mix all your spices (NO salt yet) with the cornflour

5

remove the sweet potatoes from the water and pat dry

6

place sweet potatoes in a bowl and drizzle oil over the the sweet potatoes. Mix with your hands until all of the sweet potatoes are covered.

7

sprinkle your spice mixture over the top. Mix until all sides are covered.

8

place sweet potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet topped with either a silpat or wax paper. Make sure they aren't touching each other as this will make them soggy!

9

cook for 10-15 minutes before flipping potatoes to their other sides and then let cook for another 10-15 minutes

10

season with salt
