Serves 3

Recipe ingredients


  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano, dried
  • Salt to taste
  • Grated parmesan cheese to top (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Wash sweet potatoes under running water to remove dirt.
  3. With a sharp knife, remove the corners of the sweet potatoes. Leaving
    the skin on, cut sweet potatoes into long ¼-inch strips.
  4. In a large bowl, soak the cut fries in cold water for at least 30 minutes to remove starch, which promotes crispness.
  5. Drain water and lay wet fries onto a dry towel. Pat dry fries with another towel, removing as much moisture as possible.
  6. In a large, dry mixing bowl, toss fries in olive oil.
  7. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch, garlic powder and oregano. Add ingredients to the large bowl of fries and toss to combine.
  8. Drizzle extra olive oil evenly on a baking sheet. Add fries to the baking
    sheet, forming a single layer.
  9. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Flip fries and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until the fries have browned.
  10. Sprinkle with salt and parmesan cheese. Let cool for around 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
