Yam or Sweet Potato Fries

''Fries that won't end up on your thighs!''

Makes 4 servings...

■4 Teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

■4 Yams (or sweet potatoes)

■1/2 TSP Sea Salt

■1/4 TSP Fresh Ground Pepper

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and brush with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Cut the yams or sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1/2 inch thick wedges. Transfer to a large bowl and toss in the rest of the olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and toss to coat. Arrange the fries in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake in the oven at 450 for 12 minutes. Turn the fries and bake another 10 to 12 minutes.


With Chili!!! Prep as above and add 1/2 TSP chili powder and 1/2 TSP paprika when you sprinkle with the sea salt and pepper.

With Garlic!!! Prep as above adding 1/4 TSP garlic powder when you sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.

With Cinnamon!!! Prep as above and instead of sea salt and pepper sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. The cinnamon goes really well with sweet potatoes.


Many restaurants will double fry fries to make them extra crispy. Make yours extra crispy by boiling the sliced yams or sweet potatoes for 2 to 3 minutes (to release moisture) then drain, toss with olive oil and bake.
