Sweet Potato Sticks with Homemade Ketchup




  • 2 8-oz sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp safflower oil
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • Ketchup
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp onion, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp raw honey


Prepare sticks:
Preheat oven to 425°F. Cut each potato in half crosswise. Cut each half into 1/2-inch slices, then cut slices into 1/2-inch strips (to resemble French fries). Place potatoes in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, combine paprika, cumin and oregano. Drizzle oil over potatoes. Using a silicone spatula, toss potatoes gently yet thoroughly to coat. Sprinkle paprika mixture evenly over potatoes and toss gently.
Arrange potatoes in a thin layer on a large, foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until tender and golden brown.
Remove potatoes from oven and sprinkle evenly with salt.


Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl. Ketchup can be made a few days ahead of time and stored in refrigerator in a sealed container for about 1 week.
