Sweet Potato Fries


If you a plant-based individual then you probably a fry connoisseur at this point. I can’t even tell you how many different versions of fries I’ve had. I’m talkin from dine-in restaurants, fast food places, the frozen grocery section, etc.

I eats fries my guy.

If you eat fries like this we can’t be friends

Naturally, after eating several different versions it only makes sense that I decide to make my own. I remember when my mom first bought some sweet potato fries I tried em and thought they were the nastiest things on earth.

Fast forward some years and now that’s the only kind of fries I make. Regular potatoes is just feel basic now. You need to be bougie.

I’ve made a few different versions of these. I’ve experimented with makin them on the sweeter side by adding some cinnamon and sugar (definitely try that out) but this version hit different so I had to write up a recipe about it.

Try it one time for the one time and come to the bougie side my friend.



  • Large sweet potato
  • Onion powder
  • Avocado oil
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Chili powder
  • Smoked paprika
  • Liquid smoke
  • Nutritional yeast


  1. Cut the sweet potato in half lengthwise. Put the sweet potato (sliced side down) and cut into thick strips. Lay the slices down and cut again into fry shapes.
  2. Put sliced sweet potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with avocado oil and season with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, onion powder, chili powder, liquid smoke, and nutritional yeast (all to taste so however much you like).
  3. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and put in the oven for about 30-45 minutes.
  4. Flip the fries about halfway and let cook.
  5. Take them out and let them cool for about 5-10 minutes.
  6. Eat that shxt!

Success! You're on the list.
