2 large sweet potatoes
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons canola oil (or another neutral, high-heat oil)
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons coarse salt
Fresh ground black pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Peel sweet potatoes, cut into ¼-inch slices lengthwise and then cut slices lengthwise into ¼-inch strips. Toss sweet potato strips in oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet.

Roast in oven until ‘fries’ are crispy but not burnt on the outside and creamy inside, about 45 minutes. For an air fryer, roast in batches at 375 degrees for about 25-30 minutes.

After baking, toss with Parmesan and additional salt and pepper if desired.
