Herbed Garlicky Sweet Potato Oven Fries

You noticed those tasty guys next to the portobello sandwich, huh? If you're like me, it's pretty hard to resist french fries. (Would you like fries or salad with that? Um, would you like $100 or a punch in the mouth?) Anyway, making them in the oven saves you a lot of calories and fat. And sweet potatoes are much more nutritious than their white counterparts: rich in dietary fiber, complex carbs, protein, vitamins A and C, iron and calcium, these guys are actually really good for you!

Sweet potato fries are notorious for turning out soggy. One trick I've learned is to preheat the empty pan in the oven first, then drop the oiled buggers on--you should hear a sizzle. They will never be those stiff, stand-up-straight, deep-fried concoctions, but your body will thank you for skipping the drive-thru.

2 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed and sliced 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon fresh oregano, finely chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Preheat oven and rimmed baking sheet to 450F. Toss together all ingredients and drop onto hot baking sheet. Bake 30min, turing them 1/2 way through.

Serves 4


  1. I too am a complete frie-a-holic! I can't ever seem to resist tasting them from a new restaurant/diner/hole-in-the-wall...(and I also love to cook!) In fact, my favorite fries du jour are sweet potato fries, so you had me the moment I saw the posting! I will definitely try this recipe...just as soon as I step away from the bucket of fries in front of me... ;)
