Sweet Potato Shoestrings

We bake our shoestring potatoes instead of deep-frying them because after a certain age your tummy starts to protest too much fat. But don't worry. These fries are still crispy and delicious.

1 sweet potato per person
Light olive oil or organic canola oil, as needed
Seasoning: ground cumin, thyme, black pepper, red pepper, and cinnamon* see note

For serving:
Sea salt
Champagne or rice vinegar

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into long thin shoestrings. Toss them into a bowl and drizzle with light olive oil; stirring lightly to coat. Generously season them. Note* My seasoning mix is equal shakes of: cumin, thyme and black pepper; and a little bit of hot red pepper and cinnamon. No salt (salt before roasting makes them soft). Throw them on a baking sheet. Spread evenly in one layer. Bake in the upper portion of your oven for about 20-25 min. until sizzling and browned around the edges. (Your oven times may vary from mine.) Season with sea salt immediately. Serve with a sprinkle of champagne vinegar (at the table) or scarf them down plain
