  • 1 lb fresh-cut Sweet Potato Fries
  • 3 TBSP potato starch or cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2-3 TBSP extra virgin olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Spray a sheet pan liberally with non-stick pan spray. Set aside.
  • Combine the potato starch, sea salt and paprika in a shallow dish (a 9x9 baking pan works well). Set another shallow dish next to the one containing the starch mixture.
  • Toss the fries in the starch mixture to fully coat (this may work best in 2-3 batches) and place them in the clean dish. Drizzle the oil over the fries and toss to fully coat.
  • Arrange the fries in a single layer on the sheet pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Use a flat spatula to flip the fries, and bake for 10-15 minutes more, until fries are crispy with a golden exterior.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the pan for 3-5 minutes. Season with additional sea salt if desired, and serve.


Fries will not cook properly with silicone or similar pan liners. Parchment will work, but the best results for crispy fires are from baking directly on a greased sheet pan.
