Who doesn’t love a good french fry? A french fry made any type of way has been my favorite food since I was a child. I could eat them every.single.day if you let me.
I was the same up until a couple of years ago. I realized that eating french fries really held no good nutritional value or benefit for me. I started letting go of my beloved favorite fried veggie.
I wasn’t sure of the exact moment I realized I could have a similar love affair with Sweet Potatoes, but thank God I can.

I now make baked Sweet Potato Fries and feel like I am in healthy heaven when I eat them. You can make them sweet, spicy, & a variety of toppings. It all depends on what you feel like on a given day.
Here’s my simple recipe & steps for Garlic Parmesan Baked Sweet Potato Fries:
1. Start with two cleaned sweet potatoes
2. Cut the sweet potatoes into french fry pieces & soak them in water for 1 hour to get the extra starch off (if you want them extra crispy).
3. Place the Sweet Potatoes in a bowl in pour in the olive oil, sea salt, pepper & garlic seasoning. Take your hands and toss them in the bowl. Then place the fries on a baking sheet and place them in the oven on 420-450 for 20 minutes.
4. When they are ready, let them cool for 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top and more salt & garlic (your preference) and dig in!
They come out great every time!

We love sweet potato fries. My daughter would eat them at every meal if she could.

I love sweet potatoes especially sweet potato fries. I had no idea that you needed to soak them for an hour. I’ve made sweet potato fries before and they weren’t extra crispy, but I didn’t set them out for a long time.
