Oh behold oh mighty potato.
The Irish practically lived for them. And it appears we may be having our own potato revival of our own.
High carb low fat, Potato fasting? potato for weight loss even?
The beauty of the potato is that it is simple. It doesn't need much to cook or make it taste good. Or fill you up. That is why this recipe is called "Two Sweet Potato Thyme Fries". It is literally 2 potatoes. No oil...no frying, just simply and elegantly... two potatoes.
I am going to confess a secret...'I eat these for breakfast...with 'Jazz Radio' playing in the background and with a vegan latte with whipped cream' (vegan latte recipe here) Best morning ritual ever, I might add. These are also amazing in a packed lunch. Nothing makes co-workers or classmates more jealous then homemade french fries!.
A strange fact about the sweet potato. No sweet potato is ever the same. They are all works of true art. Even if you buy "organic japanese sweet potatoes" from one store, I gaurantee will be different at another store entirely. Every potato is it's own adventure.

Preheat the oven to 415 degrees. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Wash and cut sweet potatoes into fry shaped wedges. Arrange wedges on cookie sheet.
