Sweet Potato Fries with Rosemary and Parmesan


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, about 2 pounds, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon minced rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • Non-fat cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Slice the sweet potatoes into long matchsticks about 1/4-inch in thickness. Place in a large bowl and mix with olive oil and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Spread out the fries in one even layer on the cookie sheet, so they are not touching, (otherwise they will become soggy).
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until the fries are golden on the outside and soft on the inside. Sprinkle with Parmesan, rosemary, black pepper, and paprika. Bake an additional 5 minutes until the rosemary becomes fragrant. Season with additional salt if needed and serve immediately.

    Hi Jen,

    I hope you remember me, Gloria, from the former IB. I simply love reading your website. I always look forward to your various healthy recipes. I just printed your Sweet Potato Fries and I will follow the directions on how to bake them. I am sure my grandkids would love munching them. I am so happy with how your career turned out to be. Do you know that of all the websites that I have read, yours is the best! And, you have been appearing on tv shows. That is great. Otherwise, if you were here, you would still be doing the same boring things. That was a very wise decision that you made. You know what? You look great too as I can see from all your pictures. Bye now. I have to start working. By the way, I now work at the Salomon Center, also at Stern. But, I won’t stay long working. I am just waiting for several more months, then perhaps I can retire.

    My highest and warm regards,

  2. I just made these for our little Halloween get-together and they were amazing! I used a bit more rosemary and seasoning and absolutely loved them. So did my friends. Thanks for sharing:) I hope the lovely aroma of heated rosemary doesn’t disappear from my fingers any time soon!
