Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I would chose sweet potato fries over regular fries any day. Sweet potatoes are so much more delicious and definitely more wholesome than regular potatoes, with significant amounts of vitamins A and C, beta-carotene and fiber.

To makes these fries, all you need are a some sweet potatoes (of course), some vegetable oil and some seasonings. I like to use a combination of salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried thyme - the thyme and garlic powder are a good contrast to the sweetness of the potatoes. 

Enjoy! You might find that these are addictive. 

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

3 to 4 sweet potatoes
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp garlic powder

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Pat them dry. Cut into wedges or 1/4 inch strips for thinner fries.
3. Arrange in an even layer onto a baking sheet, and toss with the vegetable oil, salt, pepper, thyme and garlic.
4. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until the fries are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally the prevent the edges from burning on one side.
