I was looking for an easy way to fix sweet potatoes and found this one. I use canola oil all the time (and so do most Chinese) and found it works just fine. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.

I love these oven fries, and make them frequently. I use whatever oil I have on hand. I can't quite get them crispy but that's okay, the taste is well worth it.
On another note, I really wish people would just use whatever oil they want and not lecture everyone on the bad aspects of whatever oil they use. Each oil does have it's benefits (if any oil can be said to have them at all) and the recent coconut oil craze is fine. I love it. But it has the same amount of calories as any other oil, and in five years will probably be on the outs. Please, please, please stop. Change the damn oil for yourself and stop lecturing. I just want to lose weight and eatingwell recipes are very good for FREE.
I really liked this recipe! Personally, I took a little bit of creative license and used olive oil as opposed to canola, and I thought it was excellent! I would definitely recommend it!
Yes, sweet potatoes have vitamin A and they are delicious. They are more healthy than regular french fries.
BUT it is so important to know about oils and why we should now know more about how important coconut oil is. Especially for our brains and importance to think clearly and focus!!
While this is an easy recipe, the choice of oil is not preferred. Canola oil doesn't tolerate high cooking temps. In addition, many people are developing an (or have been for decades) allergy to canola oil. It causes intestinal distress. It was originally developed as an industrial use oil in Canada and was made palatable. We have found that rice bran oil is an excellent substitute and does not break down due to high heat.
