Let’s get roastin’.

Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

2medium sweet potatoes, rinsed and dried

2tablespoons canola oil

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

1teaspoon coarse salt

1teaspoon garlic powder

1teaspoon freshly-cracked black pepper

12teaspoon cumin

14teaspoon cayenne (optional)

curry ketchup:

2 tablespoons ketchup

1 tablespoon curry powder

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Cut the potatoes into 1/4″ thin strips. Mix all other ingredients together in a large bowl and toss with the potatoes until they are evenly coated.

Transfer the potatoes to a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spread the potatoes in a single layer. Try not to overcrowd or have multiple layers of fries, you want them to be roasted, not steamed.

Place in the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes, turning the fries once or twice during that time to cook evenly. May take more or less time, depending on the size and thickness you cut the fries. While fries are cooking, mix together ketchup and curry to make your dipper.

Remove once the edges slightly begin to brown and fries begin to crisp. Sprinkle course salt on top when they are hot out of the oven.
