  • 3 large sweet potatoes peeled
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • freshly ground pink Himalayan salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • parchment paper


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F.

  2. Measure parchment paper to fit a large 9 x 13 sheet pan and crumble the paper up in a ball before spreading it out over the pan. (Crumbling it up first will help it to stay on the pan better and provide it with some "grip".)

  3. Peel the sweet potatoes using a potato peeler and cut off each end and discard. 

  4. If the sweet potatoes are very long, cut them in half, then cut the halves into steak fry sized wedges, about 1/2 inch thick. 

  5. Place the wedges on the sheet pan and scatter them out so that they're not stacked or overlapping the others. 

  6. Drizzle all of the wedges with olive oil, then cover them lightly in freshly ground salt and black pepper. 

  7. Place the fries in the oven and cook for 14 minutes at 450F before removing, flipping, and baking them an additional 4-5 minutes. 

  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool before enjoying.
