Sweet Potato Oven Fries
(Partial recipe shown in photo.)
This recipe is adapted from Orange Glazed Sweet Potato Oven Fries in The Whole Foods Market Cookbook.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Olive oil for spraying the potatoes
2 pounds medium sweet potatoes or yams, skin on, well scrubbed, sliced into
¼ inch thick rounds
¼ c orange marmalade
Juice of ½ lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Lightly spray a baking pan with oil (or brush oil on pan with pastry brush) and arrange the sweet potato slices in rows on the pan, not overlapping. Mix the marmalade and the lemon and brush on the sweet potato slices. Season with salt and pepper and bake for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown.
VARIATION: ROSEMARY GARNET YAM OVEN FRIES
Ed made these for me for a birthday dinner from a recipe I think he picked up at Bread and Circus. I have managed to loose the actual recipe but this is the version I have made since.
Follow the directions above, except use garnet yams if available, omit marmalade and lemon juice, and toss yam slices with:
Olive oil to coat yam slices
1 T dried rosemary
before placing potatoes on the oiled baking sheet.
