Recipe: Sweet Potato Fries with Thyme, Parsley, and Garlic

These "fries" aren't quite as crisp as those deep-fried in oil, but their sweet, earthy flavor pairs especially well with roasted and braised meats.

    • 3 large sweet potatoes, cut into 12-inch-wide strips
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
    • 1 garlic clove, minced

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Spray two baking sheets with vegetable oil spray. Toss sweet potatoes with oil in large bowl and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Spread sweet potatoes in single layer on each prepared baking sheet.

Bake until sweet potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally, about 30 minutes. Transfer sweet potatoes to platter.

Mix parsley, thyme, and garlic in small bowl. Sprinkle over sweet potatoes.
