Oven-Baked Yam Fries

by | Aug 4, 2015 | CSA Member Updates, Recipes

You will love this healthy, easy oven-baked yam fries recipe! This is a lighter version of a popular savory side dish and it’s sure to be a family favorite.

Yield: 3-5 servings
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes
Total: 30 minutes

2 medium-sized yams, rinsed and dried
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon freshly-cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne (optional)

1.  Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2.  Carefully cut the potatoes into 1/4″ thin strips, or to your desired thickness and length.  Place in a large bowl, and toss with the remaining ingredients (oil and spices) until potatoes are evenly coated.
3.  Spread the potatoes out evenly on a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper or on a silicone baking sheet. (Try not to overcrowd the sheet, or have multiple layers of fries — you want them to be roasted, not steamed.)
4.  Place in oven and cook for 20-25 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.) Remove once the edges begin to brown slightly and fries begin to crisp.
