Cumin-Spiked Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

If you're having burgers, the obvious accompaniment is fries. I figured as long as I was trying out the Easy Bean Burgers recipe from Veggie Burgers Every Which Way, I might as well try out one of the sides as well. With fall's arrival, I'm excited to gobble up winter squash, apples, and sweet potatoes. Luckily for me, Veggie Burgers Every Which Way also had an amazing recipe for sweet potato fries. This is the best sweet potato fry recipe I've found to date. The complex flavors of the garam masala and smoky cumin create a complex, but not overpowering, flavor palate that perfectly complements the sweet potatoes.
