Of the many varieties of sweet potatoes, the dark orange-fleshed tubers (often labeled “yams” in the United States) are especially popular and are a healthful choice because they are high in vitamins A and C. You can also use a combination of varieties. In this simple recipe, sweet potato wedges are lightly seasoned with ground cumin before roasting and then dusted with chopped cilantro when served.

Ingredients:

  • 2 orange-fleshed sweet potatoes, about 1 lb. total, peeled  
  • 1 Tbs. canola or safflower oil  
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin 
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt 
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste 
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh cilantro  

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 400°F.

Cut the potatoes lengthwise into slices 1/2 inch thick. Stack half of the slices and cut lengthwise into strips 1/2 inch wide. Repeat with the remaining slices. Rinse the strips with cold water and spread on a clean kitchen towel; blot dry with a second kitchen towel.

Place the potatoes in a bowl. Drizzle with the oil, sprinkle with the cumin and toss to coat evenly.

Preheat a nonstick baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the hot baking sheet. Roast the potatoes, turning every 10 minutes, until evenly browned and tender when pierced with a knife, 30 to 35 minutes.

Transfer the potatoes to a serving dish and sprinkle with the salt, a grind of pepper and the cilantro. Toss gently to coat. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good substitute for potato fries The flavoring is light and pleasant. This would be great for casual appetizers or even snacks. Very low in fat and very healthy full of vitamins and minerals! The only draw back was that they were not crispy as I would have liked- I may broil them for 5 minutes to try to make them have a more crispy texture. Overall, tasty!
