  • 1 Large Garnet Yam (or Sweet Potato), cut in half and then cut into ½ inch wedges. Leave skin on
  • 2 Tablespoon Coconut Oil—melted if solid
  • ½ tsp-1 tsp or more Sea salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 3 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
  • Optional: Finely Chopped Green Onion, Cilantro and wedges of Lime to garnish


  1. Preheat Oven to 425 degrees
  2. On a baking sheet (I line mine with a Silpat baking sheet), large skillet or cast iron frying pan; add Sweet Potato wedges. Toss with Coconut Oil (if solid it will liquefy at 75 degrees or higher), Sea Salt, Garlic Powder and Smoked Paprika
  3. Bake for 22-25 minutes. Open oven at the 15 minute mark to release steam. At this point, give the fries a quick toss with a large spatula in order to redistribute the spices and oil
  4. Remove from oven. Let sit for 3-4 minutes then sprinkle with Nutritional Yeast and lightly toss with spatula in order to coat fries evenly
  5. Serve immediately
