Spicy Spiralized Sweet Potato Fries

In most cases, I’m not a big fan of sweet potatoes. I don’t exactly dislike them, but I will always opt for the regular potato option when having to choose between the two. Until I tried these fries!

This recipe was super easy, and surprisingly filling too. Disclaimer, I didn’t measure exact amounts for the seasonings, since they vary depending on spice tolerance and taste preference.

This post’s featured photo shows a nice heap of fries on a standard size plate, and all that was from one sweet potato. I’d say serving size is half a potato per person, so keep that in mind if you’re making it for a crowd.

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato, spiralized with skin on
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F
  2. In a small bowl, mix the salt and spices together until everything is evenly distributed throughout.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the spiralized sweet potatoes with a light drizzle of olive oil, then mix in the seasoned salt. I just used my hands to mix everything together (pretty much because I didn’t want to clean a utensil).
  4. Spread the fries out evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Then remove them from the oven, mix them around so different parts can crisp up, and bake for another 10 minutes. Usually the edge pieces will cook fastest, so check on them periodically to make sure nothing’s burning (I’ve set off a few fire alarms trying to make these in the past…)

That’s all there is to it! While I call these fries, they’re actually more like noodles. Since they’re baked and not fried, they don’t get quite as crispy, so sometimes I eat them twirled on a fork like spaghetti. No matter how you eat them, they’re a delicious alternative to regular curly fries or noodles.
