Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

I have never been able to successfully make sweet potato fries. They don’t like me even though I really like them. Until today. We put aside our differences and I was finally able to make fries that weren’t too soggy or burnt. I originally found this recipe at Williams & Sonoma but I made a few changes. Instead of olive oil, I used avocado oil and I took the fries out halfway through to add the spice mixture, rather than waiting till the end. I also took out the excluded the cheese.

Sweet Potato Fries


  • 2 lb. (1 kg) orange-fleshed sweet potatoes
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/4 tsp. coarse sea salt, plus more, to taste
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced



Preheat an oven to 450°F (230°C).

Rinse and dry the sweet potatoes. Cut the unpeeled potatoes lengthwise into slices 1/2 inch (12 mm) thick, and then cut each slice into batons about 1/4 inch (6 mm) wide and 3 inches (7.5 cm) long.

Place the potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive or avocado oil, sprinkle with the 1/4 tsp. salt and toss to coat. Spread the potatoes out evenly. Roast for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir together the parsley and garlic. After the potatoes have cooked for 10 minutes, pull them out and rotate them. Sprinkle spice and garlic mixture on top.

    Caroline – these look delicious! I’ve never thought to add the parsley before. And my fries are also usually soggy or burnt and sometimes both. I’ll be giving this a try!
