Sweet Potato Fries

Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 lb Sweet potato
  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 3 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • To taste Cayenne (optional)


  • Heat oven to 200°C / 400°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Peel and cut sweet potato into thin strips.
  • Coat sweet potatoes in cornstarch and place in a large bowl. Add salt and toss until all the starch is absorbed into the potatoes. Add vegetable oil and toss to coat.
  • Divide potatoes among the two baking sheets and spread into a single, even layer.

  • Season with cayenne pepper, if using, and serve.
