Smoky Sweet Potato Fries (Vegan & Gluten Free)

These Smoky Sweet Potato Fries are awesome.  I used to think that french fries were off limits once I started eating better, but it turns out that’s not the case.

I already have a Healthy French Fry recipe on the blog.  I love sweet potatoes and I really wanted to make some french fries with them.  Well today I made these sweet potato french fries, and they were amazing!

This sweet potato french fry recipe is really simple to make.  The smoky flavor of the chili powder and the smoked paprika really goes well with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes.  This recipe would go great with my veggie burgers.

I loved dipping them into my Homemade Ketchup.  Needless to say, the entire tray was gone in minutes.  My picky, older daughter loved them!  This made me very happy because she says she doesn’t like sweet potatoes.

  1. Not sure if my fries were cut smaller than your (I used my mandolin) but my fries were nearly burnt after 30 minutes in the oven. They definitely have potential though. I will try again and lower my cook times. Also, what temperature are you frying at? I was at medium high and it seemed to burn some of my spices.
  2. These were delish!! Thank you so much for the recipe. I've made sweet potato fries before, and these turned out the best by far.
  3. I am so happy to see this recipe. I have read that the sweet potato is a "super food" and it is not a potato, it is a root vegetable., this just fascinates me. Thank you, I will give this recipe a try.
