I'm obsessed with sweet potatoes.
In fact, I don't think there is a sweet potato dish that I don't love.
I love sweet potatoes in my brownies.
I love sweet potato casserole on the holidays.
Whole roasted sweet potatoes just on their own never get old.
And of course, who doesn't love some sweet potato fries?!
Today I'm going to share with you how I make oil-free sweet potato fries that are super flavorful and even crispy...just liked the fried ones!
Let me walk you through my method.
Ingredients You Need for Oil-Free Sweet Potato Fries
Technically, you really only need sweet potatoes to make oil-free sweet potato fries.
However, if you want to add some flavor, I recommend adding some spices and salt!
Below I'll list out my favorite seasonings to add to my homemade sweet potato fries:
- Chili powder
You could also use a pre-made seasoning such as taco seasoning.
Or make some sweet sweet potato fries by using cinnamon!
The possibilities are endless so don't be shy and get creative!
How to Make Oil Free Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Baked fries aren't anything new, but this method of preparing them makes them super soft on the inside, crispy on the outside and perfect for dipping in your favorite condiment.
Maybe some Homemade Ketchup?!
To make oil free fries at home, start by preheating your oven to 400F/200C.
While the oven is preheating, wash your sweet potatoes and cut them into fries (or wedges if you prefer!)
Place the cut up sweet potatoes into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle over your spices of choice as well as salt and pepper.
Toss everything well to combine.
Using a wire rack over a baking tray, lay the potato wedges out in a single layer (see the photos below).
Bake the sweet potatoes in the oven for about 40 minutes, or until browned and crispy on the outside.
Best French Fry Condiments (that Aren't Ketchup!)
In my opinion, fries NEED dip!
And as I'm sure you know, ketchup isn't the only dip that pairs well with french fries.
Let me share some of my favorite, unique dips to pair with these oil free sweet potato fries!
- Honey Mustard (vegan of course!)
- BBQ sauce
- Super Simple Vegan Nacho Cheese
- Vegan Ranch Dressing
- Vegan Milkshakes
- Vegan aioli (add Sriracha for a kick!)
- Sweet Chili Sauce
- Leftover Curry
