These Vegan Sweet Potato Fries are sweet, savory, spicy and delicious! Dip them in our Vegan BBQ Sauce for even more flavor and spice!
We rarely use oil when cooking anymore, but we used 1/2 tsp oil for two sweet potatoes in this recipe. We’ve tried several recipes that don’t use any oil for potato fries, but the fries come out mushy and stick to the pan, while the seasonings don’t stick to the fries.
All it takes is a tiny amount of oil to make them come out crisp and delicious. The trick is to stir the oil into the uncooked sweet potatoes fries first in a large metal or non-sticky bowl to get an even coating before stirring in the seasonings.
I prefer my sweet potato fries a little soft. Cook them a little longer if you want them crispier.
