Sweet Potato Fries in Cajun Style

pastryparrot1's picture
Sweet potatoes are loaded with Vitamin A, C, E and K amongst others. They are a great alternative to potatoes and this particular recipe is loaded with flavor. They are spicy and a great addition to any meal you want. You will be making a paste that will coat the ‘fries’. In this video I used my hands but I must warn you that you will be handling cayenne and Tabasco. If you have sensitive skin this might not be a good idea. As an option you can place them in a bag – working in batches – add some of the paste and roll them in the bag. You can also use gloves.
  Sweet potatoes 8 Small, scrubbed clean and cut into long pieces
  Dried oregano 1 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme 1 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1 Teaspoon
  Onion powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Paprika 1 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1 Teaspoon
  Tabasco 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Place all the spices in a bowl. Add the oil and mix well to form a paste. Place the paste on the sweet potatoes and coat evenly.
Place the coated sweet potato fries – on an oiled baking sheet – in a single layer. You can line the sheet with aluminum foil if you want to keep things clean. Roast the sweet potatoes for 20 to 25 minutes, flipping them in the middle of the process. Serve and enjoy!
