Jazz up your sweet potato game with these cumin and coriander–seasoned sweet potato fries. Don’t skip the cornstarch—it absorbs moisture as the fries bake and helps crisp them up. And, don’t try to get all of the fries onto one baking sheet. If you put too many on the pan, they just steam each other and you’ll end up with sad, soggy fries. Serve with an avocado-topped burger or as a side with black bean and cheese quesadillas.
