Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Curry Mayo

Makes 4 servings

Oven-baking sweet potato fries lowers the fat and calories while maintaining all the flavor. The curry mayo was a real hit with our taste testers.


1 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1⁄2-inch (1 cm) thick spears 750 g
1/4 cup canola or olive oil 60 mL
1 tsp ground cumin 5 mL
1/2 tsp sea salt (optional) 2 mL
  Curry Mayo  
1/4 cup light mayonnaise 60 mL
1 tsp curry powder 5 mL
1 tsp liquid honey 5 mL
  • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C)
  • Baking sheet, lined with foil


Step 1
Fries: In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, oil and cumin, tossing until fries are well coated. Spread in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Flip potatoes over and bake for 15 minutes or until browned and tender. Transfer potatoes to a plate lined with paper towels and sprinkle with sea salt (if using).

Step 2
Mayo: Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, curry powder and honey. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Step 3
Serve fries with curry mayo for dipping.


Cut the potatoes to a uniform size and shape to facilitate even cooking.
Kids can get involved by making the curry mayo.
If you serve these fries without the curry mayo, you’ll reduce the fat content per serving by a third.
