Ingredients

  • 4 medium Sweet Potatoes scrubbed and cut lengthwise into wedges
  • 3 tbsp Olive or avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp Corn starch or Potato starch
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp Freshly chopped curly parsley to garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Scrub and rinse the sweet potatoes to remove any dirt.
  • Cut the potato in half and then cut each half lengthways again to end up with 8 wedges. Soak the wedges into a bowl filled with cold water for at least 1 hour.
  • After the time is up, remove the potatoes from the water and pat the excess moisture with a paper towel.
  • Meanwhile preheat the oven to 400°F and lightly grease 2 non-stick baking sheets with cooking oil spray. Next, place the potato wedges together with the starch in a large ziplock bag.
  • Close the bag and shake well to coat. Open the bag and pour in the oil, then seal and again shake the bag to evenly coat with the oil.
  • Lay the wedges on the prepared baking trays, in a single layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning halfway through until both sides are golden and crispy.
  • Once done remove from the oven and let them slightly cool at room temperature for about 8-10 minutes before removing them from the trays. Garnish with salt, pepper, and parsley.
  • Serve with your favorite dip and enjoy!

Notes

Substitutes:
  • Use any neutral oil. We prefer olive or avocado oil
  • To give the sweet potatoes that crispy texture use corn starch, tapioca flour, or potato starch
