EATS: Oven-Baked Ube Fries

If 2021 was about survival and trying to sustain ourselves with predictable and easy meals, 2022 proves to be the year of culinary expansion and experimentation with… vegetables! Here is my latest creation playing with ube, or Japanese purple yam. It’s easy, fast, and yummy. Hope you enjoy them!

EATS: Oven-baked Ube


  • 2-3 Japanese purple yam, ube
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs garlic powder
  • 1 Tbs paprika
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbs salt


  • Wash and scrub the yam well; pat dry
  • Cut the yam into thin sticks by slicing them first like this (don’t they look like some decadent pork belly?):

Then cut them into sticks like this
  • Coat them in a bowl with olive oil
  • Toss in the spice powder and mix with your hand
  • Line them in the baking sheet, ensure they are in single layers
  • 400F 15min; flip the sticks, then bake for another 10min
  • Enjoy!
