Sweet Potato Fries - Baked and Crispy!

I can not tell you in words how fantastic these fries are, really, you just have to make them. 
I'm not sure what is the best part, they are healthy and good for you, or that they are super easy and fast to make? 
Either way, make lots of them and invite a few friends over, they are sure to be impressed!

                   Sweet Potato Fries - Baked and Crispy!

Ingredients: (Printable Version Here)
1 large sweet potato should be enough for 2 people
2 tbsp rice flour (you could also use cornstarch)
2 tbsp of olive or coconut oil 
* Salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne, Cajun spice blend, dried basil

*Here, you can add your favorite blend of herbs and spices such as garlic, cinnamon, curry, pumpkin pie spice, garlic – sweet, savory and/or spicy!

Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or a silicone baking mat. More than one large sliced potato is usually too crowded on 1 sheet, but it depends on their size. You may need an additional sheet. Set aside.

Wash and peel (I leave some of the skin on) the potatoes. Cut off the ends. Cut the potatoes into thin slices about 1/4 inch wide. The important thing is that they are roughly the same size.

Place in a large bowl and toss with rice flour. You want a nice thin coating. Shake off any extra flour. Place potatoes back into the bowl and add the olive oil and seasonings of choice. Toss/stir to coat evenly.

Spread the sweet potatoes on the baking sheet in a single layer making sure the slices are not touching each other. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven and stir em up with a spatula. Place back into the oven for 10-15 more minutes. Rotate the pan to avoid uneven browning, it’s good if the edges are a little brown and caramelized, just not burnt.

For extra crispier fries: Turn the oven off and keep the fries inside as the oven cools down for about 10 minutes. Enjoy while still hot.

These fries are fantastic alone, but they also taste great with an aioli dipping sauce, ranch dressing or a try them with a simple plain yogurt with dill mixture!
