garlic and rosemary sweet potato fries

today was another lovely day. i enjoyed errands and sushi with my little sister early afternoon and then continued to slave in the kitchen making dinner for my large family (willingly of course) for the rest of the day.

i made a variation of turkish food, i grew up in turkey and miss it everyday. food is a great reminder of the great country. i made lamb gyros with tzatziki sauce and roasted italian peppers. i very much love turkish style gyros.
 a little hint for turkish cooking: you could never use too much garlic or too much olive oil. 

i couldn't resist making my sweet potato fries with this meal, i found a bag of sweet potatoes in the pantry and went to work.

garlic and rosemary sweet potato fries


  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, cut into fries (not too thin, 1/2 in thick should do)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 sprig rosemary, leaves finely chopped
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, finely chopped

  • preheat the oven to 425 degrees
  • in a large bowl toss sweet potatoes with olive oil 
  • add garlic, salt, pepper, and rosemary 
  • spread in a single layer on a baking sheet (line baking sheet with aluminum foil)
  • bake between 25-40 minutes or until crispy (depending on desired thickness)
  • check often, tossing 2 or 3 times during baking
  • remove from oven and sprinkle with more salt and parsley

i hope you enjoy this fabulous recipe as much as i do!
