Ingredients 3 medium Sweet Potatoes 2 teaspoons smoked paprika Salt and Pepper, to taste How it’s Done Preheat your oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. To make the Oil-Free Sweet Potato fries: Scrub the sweet potatoes. Cut into 1/2-inch planks. Then cut into batons (aka fries), about 1/2-inch thick. Spread the fries on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with smoked paprika. Spread into a single layer on the pan. Bake for 25 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes. Turn up the heat to 425F and roast 5-7 more minutes, until crispy around the edges. Yield: About 6 cups Chef Katie’s Tips: Crispy Convection: If you have a convection setting on your oven, use it. “Convection” just means “fan”. This will give you better air circulation for crispier fries. Single Layer Only: Be sure not to overcrowd your baking sheet, laying the fries into just a single layer. Use two sheet pans if needed. More Spice: You can add extra spice with 1/4 teaspoon of chipotle powder or cayenne. Nutrition Facts Serving size: 1/4 of a recipe (3.5 ounces). Calories 87.14 Calories From
