Did you see my Instagram post recently? I have actually been dealing with these crispy baked sweet potato french fries. This food has actually been covered extensively on the web, however I do feel that my findings here will include something to the conversation. I even broke out the determining tape for this one! It’s gon na be that type of post today.

Let me begin by stating: I constantly order sweet potato french fries at dining establishments. Like, the fried ones that normally cost an additional dollar to be served together with your burger/sandwich/wrap etc. When they’re best (gently crispy, well-salted to stabilize the sweet, no burnt-but-still-soggy bits), they’re SO right. I crave them frequently.

I do not deep fry in the house however, scheduling that unique “treat yourself” minute for when we’re out. With that in mind, it can be challenging to bake a tray of sweet potato french fries that do not taste like routine old roasted sweet potatoes– which I do like! However when I desire french fries, that’s a different yearning. Crispy, salted, tough enough to get with your fingers, dip-able. You understand?

SO! Here’s a rundown of my necessaries if you desire bomb crispy baked sweet potato french fries. These are ALL non-negotiables for me:

Accuracy cuts! I cut my french fries in the location of 3 inches long and 1/2 an inch thick. You desire them all the very same to prevent over/under done parts. Chunky, rustically cut, big french fries will not crisp up correctly since it’s simply excessive sweet potato. Think about it as a gently meditative knife abilities work out.

A little soak. My mum makes genuinely impressive homemade french fries and she constantly soaks them in cold water prior to frying. This action draws additional starch out of your sweet potatoes, which in turn assists us prevent any charred fry edges (charred sweet potato is among the ickiest tastes, seriously). Leave them completely immersed for a minimum of one hour or approximately 24 hr in the fridge. You need to dry them completely after draining pipes.

Arrowroot is our MVP. I have actually seen baked variations of sweet potato french fries with cornstarch or cornmeal contributed to crisp them up. I wished to prevent corn since I understand that a great deal of individuals in this neighborhood prevent it or have allergic reactions. Here, the dried sweet potatoes are tossed with arrowroot to coat. It’s a starch that I lean on frequently to thicken mixes and with this dish, it starches up the edges of our french fries and makes them tough.

Oil spray that can take the heat. You require a thin, even covering of oil on the lining of your flat pan and the french fries themselves. Spray oil is by far the very best choice. I utilize the avocado oil spray from Chosen Foods since it can deal with heats without breaking down and there aren’t any unusual propellants int his item. I have actually attempted these french fries with routine oil that you put from the bottle and it’s so picky to get it on each fry and you end up utilizing excessive.

Spacing and turning. You can’t simply discard these french fries on the baking sheet and knock them in the oven. Every one needs to have its own little bubble of area and need to be turned thoroughly at the middle of the 50 minute baking procedure to maintain stated area. I never ever stated that this dish was low upkeep!

You need to wait on the salt. Salt right away extracts wetness anywhere it lands, and you absolutely wish to prevent that here. You can share your other flavorings prior to baking though! As soon as the sweet potato french fries are completely done, rapidly move them to a big bowl and toss them with a fat pinch of great sea salt. Fleur de sel is lovely and unique, however you require a great salt that’s going to stay with these french fries right away.

Make a dip worthwhile of these generous french fries that you generally simply invested a whole week dealing with, seriously. I have actually consisted of a dish for a roasted garlic tahini yogurt dip with herbs here, however I likewise delight in these french fries with catsup. Additionally, maybe a great Sheet Pan Gravy? The Chile Lime Tahini Sauce from these Grilled Sugary Food Potatoes would be another excellent choice. If you have actually made it this far and your eyes aren’t presenting of your head at the accuracy of everything, I hope that you make these! You’ll be so pleased.

Active Ingredients

Roasted Garlic Tahini Yogurt Dip

  • 1 head of garlic
  • oil
  • generous 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy yogurt of option
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 little handful sliced fresh parsley
  • 1 little handful sliced fresh mint
  • sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Crispy Baked Sugary Food Potato French Fries

  • 2 small-medium sweet potatoes, peeled (about 750 grams overall)
  • 2-3 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • cayenne, cinnamon, thyme, garlic powder, rosemary, turmeric or any other SALT-FREE flavoring that you like (we’re including salt at the very end)
  • high heat-tolerant oil spray ( I like avocado oil)
  • great sea salt, to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 425 ° F. Line a big baking sheet with parchment paper and reserved. If your flat pan is well-seasoned, you can avoid the parchment lining.
  • Make the dip: Cut the leading 1/2 inch off of the garlic head. Tear a piece of foil (sufficient to twist around the garlic) and put the garlic head in the middle. Drizzle oil on top, letting it permeate into the garlic cavities. Wrap the garlic up and put it in the oven. Roast the garlic till squidgy and golden within, about 45 minutes. Reserve to cool.
  • Location the yogurt into a little bowl. Squeeze the cooled roasted garlic into the bowl. Include the lemon juice, tahini, parsley, mint, salt, and pepper to the yogurt mix. Mash and stir everything together with a fork till integrated. Cover the bowl and reserved in the fridge.
  • Make the french fries: Cut the sweet potatoes into 3-inch long and 1/2 -inch thick french fries. Location the cut sweet potatoes into a big bowl and cover them with cold water. Let them sit for a minimum of an hour or approximately over night in the fridge.
  • Drain pipes the sweet potatoes and lay them on a tidy kitchen area towel. Location another tidy kitchen area towel on the top and loosely roll them all up. Massage the little towel sweet potato roll-up for a bit so that the french fries are as dry as possible.
  • In another big bowl, toss the cut sweet potatoes with the arrowroot powder and SALT-FREE flavorings of your option (salt is occurring later on). The cut sweet potatoes must have a light, grainy covering of arrowroot.
  • Spray the parchment on your flat pan uniformly with the oil spray. Set up the sweet potatoes in rows on the baking sheet. Spray the tops of the sweet potatoes with the oil spray prior to moving them into the oven.
  • Bake the sweet potato french fries for 25 minutes or really gently browned in areas and the arrowroot is forming a light “webbing” on the undersides of the french fries. Eliminate the french fries from the oven and thoroughly turn them all over. Move the sweet potato french fries back into the oven and bake for another 25 minutes.
  • At the end of the 25 minutes, the sweet potato french fries must have some strong brown areas and crisp outsides. If they still appear like they require crisping, thoroughly turn them one more time and bake till they have actually reached your wanted doneness.
  • Rapidly move the french fries to a big bowl and toss them with a fat pinch of sea salt. Caution: when they’re piping hot, they will not FEEL entirely crispy yet. Location the hot french fries on your serving plate in a single layer together with your roasted garlic tahini yogurt dip. After they sit for a couple of seconds, they will begin to get that incredibly crispy quality.


  • I would not go off-script here. I recommend making dishes your own, however if you’re anticipating completely crispy outcomes, I ‘d follow this dish to a tee the very first go-around.
  • If you’re down with utilizing cornstarch, you can utilize the very same quantity of it in location of the arrowroot.
  • A few of you might understand this, however my favored coconut yogurt is Anita’s. Utilize any unsweetened, somewhat thick yogurt that you like however.

    I like this! I can’t appear to make a tray without a soaked and/or charred sweet potato in some way … meh– NEver attempted to coat them with any starch though!

    Regretfully, I do not endure arrowroot, exists a replacement, even if not rather as reliable? Thx! Reply

    • Laura

      So in the dish notes I suggest cornstarch as a one-for-one replacement, however other alternatives you might check out (off the top of my head) consist of tapioca starch and even potato starch. I have actually not attempted this dish with the tapioca or potato starch, so can not ensure the success rate sadly.

    Quick concern: Have you attempted tossing the potatoes in olive oil vs spraying with cooking spray? I am simply questioning if it makes a distinction. Thank you! These look tasty and the images are lovely. Reply

    • Laura

      Hello There Emily,
      So I have actually attempted tossing the french fries in oil after tossing them in arrowroot powder and I didn’t like the outcomes. The spray oil is still more effective since it does not interrupt the arrowroot covering as much, and it’s absolutely less untidy.
