I’m so glad this dog loves veggies. Currently going crazy and will do anything for sweet potatoes. I’m making crisp, baked sweet potato fries 🍟 today with another restaurant trick.
Crisp edges. Soft centers.Baked, not fried. 😇 The secret? A toss in rice flour before baking. And don’t salt them till ready to serve. These can be made ahead and frozen till ready to use.
Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries.
:: 2 sweet potatoes cut into 1/4” matchsticks. Then soak in water for 15 mins to remove some of the natural starches. Towel dry and set aside.
:: 1 tsp rice flour (my preference). 1/2 tsp Corn starch works too but be very careful not to use too much or the fries will get soggy instead. Rice flour is also the secret in super crumbly shortbread cookies. 😉
:: Oliveoil spray can. Because you need just a light spritz.
:: Seasoning options: cumin & paprika, garlic & lemon or a vegetable spice blend.
:: Parchment paper 🤗. Got to love parchment paper. Life saver.
:: Preheat oven to 400 deg.
:: In a ziploc bag, toss sweet potato stick in 2 tsp of rice flour. The rice flour should look barely there.
:: Distribute coated sweet potatoes on parchment paper prepared baking tray.
:: Lightly spritz some oil. Just enough for the spices to hold. Sprinkle spices. Hand toss sweet potato sticks gently.
:: Bake for about 25-30 mins to your preference of crispness..
Serve with a dip or as part of a meal.
