Moosewood Sweet Potato Oven Fries

When the weather turns cool, we find ourselves craving fragrant foods baked in the oven. Here’s s a slight variation on a simple side that we love from the Moosewood Restaurant’s low-fat cookbook.  It’s easy and a great side for a busy night when we’re just having sandwiches, chili, or quesadillas. This is very adaptable!

2 lbs sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into thick fries

1-2 T. olive oil

1 T. paprika

1 T. cumin (the original recipes only calls for 1 tsp, but we love cumin)

kosher or sea salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 425. Toss all of the ingredients in a large bowl and stir to coat. Turn the sweet potatoes out onto a baking sheet (should be in a single layer). Bake 45 min to an hour, until fries are golden and crispy, stirring occasionally. Serve with spicy ketchup, salt, and/or malt vinegar.
