Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Serves six

6 medium smooth skinned sweet potatoes, peeled
Olive oil for coating
Coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 tablespoons zatar
Few pinches cayenne pepper

To prepare:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Cut sweet potatoes in half and then each half into one-half-inch slices, and finally into even sized “fries.” Place potatoes in a large mixing bowl and drizzle enough oil to completely coat the potatoes. In a small bowl, stir turmeric, cumin, paprika, zatar, cayenne, salt, and black pepper to together, and then sprinkle seasonings over the potatoes and mix well to coat.

Arrange the potatoes on Teflon or parchment paper lined baking sheets with space in-between so they will become crisp. Roast about fifteen minutes on one side, then turn over to brown the other side and continue roasting until they are crisp and tender, about fifteen to twenty minutes more.
