I’m totally in love with sweet potato fries. I’m trying really hard to swap out regular potatoes for sweet potatoes whenever I can. It’s the smaller healthier choices that add up. This recipe is pretty straightforward, just like you’d make any kind of oven fries. The thing that makes them a little more special is the homemade rosemary sea salt. It just takes them to the next level.
I learned from my friend, Meg, that most of the nutrients in sweet potatoes are located just below the skin, so I’ve stopped peeling them too. Just scrub them really well. Use organic if you can find them. They also don’t need more than a little drizzle of olive oil – just enough to keep them from drying out. All in all, they are a much healthier alternative to baking potatoes.
