Roasted Sweet Potato Sticks with Rosemary – a healthy ‘snack’ food

Posted on

I haven’t fixed this ‘snack’ yet, but I feel pretty confident having made roasted, seasoned potatos, and recently having made Eggplant Chips. So, putting the recipe here for reference and when I get more sweet potatoes, I’ll be sure to make this one. I bought sweet potatoes at our last grocery outing, but they were intended for the Thai and vegetarian recipes I collected. I can recommend the sweet potato Thai recipe, not the vegetarian sweet potato – lentil recipe. But, even so, I’m spoiled in wanting my sweet potatoes to taste like the recipe I use at Thanksgiving.

Found the recipe this morning at Apartment Therapy (interesting blog by the way).

Roasted Sweet Potato Sticks with Rosemary

1 pound sweet potatoes, washed
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped fine
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Heat oven to 425ºF. Cut the sweet potatoes into thick sticks. Toss with the rosemary, oil, salt and pepper and spread in one layer on a large baking sheet. Roast for about 15 minutes, shaking the pan and stirring occasionally.

They don’t get crispy, like fried fries, but instead they’re tender in the middle with some crunchy edges. Rosemary is just one seasoning idea – try tossing them with thyme, chili powder, or paprika.

Other suggestions from the comments;

Try split batches – half savoury; with chili pepper and cumin, and half sweet; with cinnamon and nutmeg and served with maple syrup.

Try using butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes.

(If you have a variation on the recipe, please post it in comments. I was wondering if you could make these ‘fries’ using pumpkin, squashes, yams?)

Hey, hi there. So much I like to do, so little time to do it all. Happy to have health and time left to do it in this third phase of my life. Ahhh, my profile photo - well that's an old photo, I think about 2006, and even though I don't look like that any more, I like the photo.

    Interestingly, since I published this recipe in 2007, by December 2013 we had switched to Paleo style of food, having done considerable research first before switching. Point being this roasted rosemary sweet potato recipe is a Paleo staple, easily transferrable to Paleo way of food. Reason for the switch, that with strong vegetarian preferences, we were both putting on weight, not taking it off and it was becoming more dangerous as our years piled on. Gluten-free was becoming more of a norm, and concerns about gluten pushed me to do more looking into the subject and I arrived at another version = Paleo way of eating, as our ancestors before agriculture managed food.
