I recently discovered sweet potato fries and I LOVE THEM!!
They’re so delicious aaand nutritious! One baked sweet potato contains over twice the amount of vitamin A you need for the day! 🙂 Sweet Potatoes are complex carbohydrates that contain protein, which basically means you can eat plenty of these and not feel guilty at all 😀
I cooked some for my boyfriend and he’s obsessed. Cooked some for my sister, and she hated them. It’s not for everyone I guess!!
Cook Time: 45 Min (Aprox.)
- Sweet Potatoes (at least one per person)
- Olive Oil
- Salt, Pepper and Spices (I use Merkén, a Chilean spice, but it works well with cayenne pepper, paprika, curry powder, garlic powder, cumin… basically any spice you like!)
Preheat oven to 230°C (450°F).
You can peel potatoes or eat them with the skin on, either way is fine! If you decide to wash the potatoes, make sure to dry them well, if not, they’ll be soggy!
Cut them into fry-shaped pieces. Make the sizes similar so they all bake evenly.
Put the fries on a bowl or a plastic bag (or directly onto your baking sheet if you like) and add a few tablespoons of olive oil, enough to lightly coat the fries. Season with your spices and add salt and pepper. Mix/shake well, so all the fries are covered with olive oil and spices.
Put the fries directly on a dark, non-stick baking sheet for best results (lining with aluminum foil produces mixed results and parchment paper can burn in the hot oven). Arrange your fries in a single layer and make sure they’re evenly spaced – no touching! otherwise they will never crisp up / they’ll get soggy!
Bake fries for 15 minutes, then flip the fries so they can cook on both sides. Then bake for 10-15 more minutes. It’s important to bake them long enough, so that they have a crispy taste.
There you have it!
Delicious sweet potato fries! Let me know if you like them 🙂
