Um. Yummy.

Last night I made these. They were so good. Hanko and Roo gobbled them up with a bit of ketchup. Sweet potatoes are healthy, but they're pretty tasty too. Huh. I'm still in shock that they tried them. I just told them we were eating orange fries.

I changed the recipe just a bit, so here it is:

Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

2 medium-sized sweet potatoes, cut into wedges
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tsp olive oil
2 cloves fresh garlic, pressed
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 450 F.

Combine all ingredients in a plastic bag. Seal and shake. Place sweet potato wedges on a baking sheet (do not overlap) coated with cooking spray. (I used a silicone liner for the baking sheet so they wouldn't stick.) Bake at 450 F for 20-30 minutes or until very tender, flipping potatoes once during cooking. To give them a little extra crisp, turn the broiler on for the last 5-10 minutes. Salt to taste.
