Sweet potato fries are a healthy and delicious alternative to normal fries and add a little sweetness to accompany whatever main you decide to go for.
For this meal we enjoyed ours Mediterranean style, coated in zaa’tar, paprika, garlic, chilli, salt and pepper and served with spring green wraps.
You will need (serves two):
- 2 sweet potatoes
- Oil (we like the spray one for chips as it distributes much more evenly)
- Salt & Pepper
- Chilli powder
- 4 cloves of garlic
- Garlic powder, paprika, zaa’tar and any other spices if you so wish!
This is the simplest method, so start by preheating your oven to 200 degrees celcius.
Now roughly slice your sweet potatoes, however thick or thin you like them. We went for a bit of a mixture, some were more wedge-like, others were more like small fries that went extra crispy.
Once all are chopped, place them in a baking tray and sprinkle on your chosen spices, salt and pepper. Spritz on some oil and then with you hands, toss the fries to ensure that all are as evenly coated as possible.
Place into the oven and bake for around thirty-five minutes, checking on them every ten minutes or so and flipping them. For the last five minutes, switch your oven onto the grill setting, as this will help them go even crispier just before you take them out the oven.
If they are as crispy as you like, take them out, serve and enjoy!
