Don't buy frozen fries, make them fresh, and use orange sweet potatoes to get more antioxidants, potassium, and fibre, from a fat-free, low-glycemic index super-food!

Peel the potatoes, cut into sticks, spread on your baking sheet, sprinkle with seasonings, bake, enjoy.

See full instructions and pictures here!




  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.  Use a foil or silicone lined baking sheet or stoneware.  No-oil required.

  2. Peel the potatoes.

  3. Cut in half or quarters, place on the round side, slice down 2-3 times to make 1 inch lengths.  Set in a pile on the flat side, cut into sticks.

  4. Spread mostly in a single layer, some overlap is fine.  No-oil required.  Really jam the sticks together, they will shrink quite a bit.  Pack as many on the sheet as you can, because I think you are going to eat these up really quick-like and be sad if you don't have enough.  In fact, I wish I had put a lot more on my sheet here. :(

  5. Sprinkle with seasonings like seasoned salt, chili powder, or cajun seasoning from Epicure.  If you have a convection oven, then fire up two sheets and cook those babies at the same time.

  6. Bake for 30 - 40 minutes.  Remove if fries start to burn.

  7. Serve!  In this case we had them with beet greens (with fresh squeezed lemon) and vegan chicken fingers.  It was honestly a great combo.  Spicy cajun fries, salty lemon beet greens (they are naturally salty), sweet ketchup veggie fingers - it was all really good, and pretty good for us too, right?
