My good friend Mindy made me try some sweet potato fries a few years back and I fell in love! I grew up knowing sweet potatoes as that stuff from a can with marshmallows on top for Thanksgiving. I know some people love it but I was not a fan. I’ve been experimenting with sweet potatoes ever since those amazing fries (thank you, Mindy!). Here’s how I make them – I usually just throw the ingredients together, but tonight I did a few measurements. Anyway, you could add more or less of any of these ingredients and they’d probably still turn out awesome.
Peel 3-4 sweet potatoes and cut into cubes. Stir together with:
2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 Tbs dried rosemary
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Spread out on a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (otherwise, they’ll stick to the pan) and sprinkle with salt. Cook at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until tender.
If you have a recipe for a sauce that would be great with these, please share — they’re great on their own but I love to dip!
