Sweet Potato Fries

My oven-baked fries are every bit as good as the deep fried kind! Rich in beta-carotene, bright orange sweet potatoes help keep your eyes, skin, and hair vibrant and healthy. And they’re rich in soluble fiber, which helps IBS sufferers stay regular.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 Servings
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (about 8 ounces each)
  • Kosher salt, to taste (optional)
  • ground black pepper, to taste (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a large baking sheet with oil spray.

Slice off the ends of the potatoes and cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half into wedges or strips (approximately ¼-inch thick). Spread the fries out in a single layer on the baking sheet and spray liberally with oil spray. Sprinkle the fries with salt and pepper (and any other optional seasonings like curry, cinnamon, chipotle chili powder, cumin, etc.).

Bake the fries for 20 minutes, flipping them halfway through. To finish, set the oven to broil and broil for 5+ minutes (depending on how brown and crispy you like your fries).

Note: Nutrition information is for plain fries, without salt or other seasonings.


IBS sufferers take note: This recipe is suitable for constipation-predominant IBS and diarrhea-predominant IBS.
