5 sweet potatoes, cut into about 1 by 5-inch "fries"
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
I made a lot less than this just for us. I only used 1 sweet potato.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the sweet potato "fries" on a foil-lined baking sheet and toss with the olive oil. Bake until golden, about 45 minutes.
Meanwhile combine the basil and pepper in a small bowl.
When the sweet potato fries come out of the oven, sprinkle with the basil pepper. I left out the salt.
