Nothing better than sweet potatoes, in my opinion! So yummy in so many different ways. Because these are baked, they aren’t going to be as crispy as if you fried, them, but they are still delicious! Love serving these as a side dish to burritos or veggies burgers.
- 1/2 – 2/3 lbs of sweet potatoes per person, cut into 1/4″ x 1/4″ x 3 – 4″ long fries
- olive oil, drizzle
- salt, to taste
- salt-free cajun seasoning (I like using the salt-free kind so that I can better control the salt levels and flavor levels), to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss sweet potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil, a (somewhat generous) shaking of salt, and Cajun seasoning to taste. You can always add more after baking to taste, but you can’t take it easily away once it’s on, so you might go light at first.
When spreading on baking sheets, make sure that the potatoes aren’t too close together. I made 2 lbs and used two different baking sheets. After 15 minutes, flip (or toss around). Keep an eye on them after that – mine took about 30 minutes, but the exact size of your fries will affect the cooking time.
This is the Cajun Seasoning I use. You could probably make your own with those ingredients listed.
