Easy Sweet Potato Fries

Servings: 2
What you will need:
2 large, or 3 medium sweet potatoes, washed & peeled
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. smoked paprika
Salt & pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp. cornstarch
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes and cut into fry-shaped slices. Approximately 1/4 inch thick or so. Try your best to cut them all into evenly thick slices so that they will bake evenly. Place the fries into a large Ziploc bag. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch into the bag at a time and shake the bag well to evenly coat the fries with the cornstarch. Then add the olive oil, shake very well, followed by the remaining seasonings. Shake the bag again to evenly mix the seasonings over the fries.
Cover a cookie sheet or baking sheet with parchment paper and place the fries in a single layer evenly apart from one another. If they are not spaced out- they will not cook thoroughly. You will have softer fries, rather than crispy fries. 
Place the sheet into the oven to bake for 15 minutes, then flip so that they can cook on each side. I find that it is easiest if you layer and space the fries so that they are in rows. This makes flipping them with a spatula halfway through much easier. Place them back into the oven for an additional 12-15 minutes, watching at the 10 minute mark. Time will be dependent on how thick of slices you made. You will know when they are done.

    How many calories per serving?

    Calorie and macro breakdown will vary with the size of your sweet potatoes. Weigh them and calculate as you cook.

    I always space my fries out but they never turn out crunchy. Any tips to get them crunchy?

    Try broiling them after baking! Just watch them though because broiling burns fast
