Crispy and Delicious Sweet Potato Fries

These addictive baked sweet potato fries are a much healthier version of french fries.  They are crispy and delicious and the whole family will love them!

Pre heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange 2 racks to divide the oven into thirds. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

Wash and peel your sweet potatoes. Cut the sweet potatoes into thirds or quarters lengthwise, depending on it's thickness.

Lay the thirds or quarters that was just cut flat and make a second cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick sticks.

Place the sweet potato in a large zip-top plastic bag or bowl, add the cornstarch and salt and shake or toss to combine until all the starch is absorbed into the sweet potato.

Add the oil and salt and toss to coat.

Divide the sweet potatoes among the 2 baking sheets and spread into a single, even layer, leaving space around each fry.

Bake until some of the fries are just starting to brown around the edges, about 15 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the oven. Using a flat spatula or turner, flip the sweet potatoes.

Place back in the oven, switching the sheets between racks, and continue to bake until the fries are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside, 10-15 minutes. Your total baking time should be between 27-35 minutes.

Season with additional salt, cilantro or parsley, if desired
