Sweet Potato is one of my favourite veggies, so naturally I eat it in lots of my dishes (probably about 3-4 times a week). I love to experiment with it in all kinds of sauces, buddha bowls, sweet treats (perfect for brownies), or just steamed with some coconut sugar sprinkled on top (SO good) – it’s just great in almost every meal! 🙂
In my opinion, sweet potato fries are the basics of the basics and everybody should know them and have tried them at least once! I love how you can play with the spices and adjust it to your taste – sweet or salty – and they are so much tastier and healthier than the normal, greasy fries you get at the restaurants! I usually prepare several dips to dip them in, like ketchup, (spicy) mayonnaise and pesto, so I will post the recipes of those soon!
- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 1-2 Tbsp olive oil (totally optional, I prefer without the oil, and they still get super crispy)
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ⅓ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp sweet paprika
- thyme, rosemary, basil, etc.
- Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into the desired fries shape (the thicker the fries the longer you'll need to bake).
- Soak the cut fries in water for about 60 minutes and rinse and dry them in a kitchen towel.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C.
- In a small bowl, mix together the desired spices and sprinkle the mixture over the fries.
- Use your hands to mix the spices into the fries so that all parts are covered.
- Line a tray with parchment paper and place the fries on it, so that they don't touch each other (for more crispiness).
- Bake them for 30-35 minutes (depending on the thickness) at 200°C and serve with different dips!
