Sweet Potato Fries

13 Feb

If you’re trying to eat a bit healthier – which I halfheartedly am – sweet potato is a brilliant substitute for actual spuds. It’s terribly good for you and very tasty. It also fills you up for absolutely ages.

To make these, chop your sweet potato into fries, a little bit thicker than a *dreamy stare* McDonalds chip. One potato per person makes a very decent portion.

Heat the oven to 200°c/gas mark 6 and line a baking tray with tin foil. Pour a tiny bit of vegetable oil over the sweet potato and toss everything with your hands until all the fries have a light coating.

Spread them out on the baking tray and sprinkle over some chilli flakes, dried rosemary, dried thyme, and a bit of black pepper.

Pop in the middle of the oven for half an hour until soft. They won’t get crispy but I think I actually prefer them from normal chips. I don’t know who I am any more.

Serve with salt and light mayo or some crème fraîche mixed with a dash of Sriracha.
