Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sage
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions 

  • Heat grill to medium-high heat. Combine seasonings in a small bowl or jar.
  • Slice potatoes into sticks or thin wedges and place in a bowl. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle seasoning over the potatoes and toss to mix and coat the sweet potatoes evenly.
  • Place the seasoned fries directly on the grill or use a grilling pan. Space the fries out a little bit if you can, they will cook more evenly if they are not crowded together.
  • Grill until the sweet potatoes are tender and slightly charred, turning occasionally. It will take between 10-15 minutes total, depending on the heat of your grill.
