Sweet Potato Fries

    Sweet potato fries are my favourite root vegetable fries and they are healthier too. Did you know sweet potatoes are a source of vitamin C? These taste good slightly salted and spiced and here is my recipe:


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, washed and scrubbed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes into thin wedges. Cut them as thin as you can.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the sweet potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.
  4. Place the sweet potato fries on a foil lined baking tray.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes.
  6. Enjoy hot

    Hey! Those fries look awesome! For quite some time now I’ve been wanting to give sweet potato fries a go, I’m just worried about them drying out and shriveling up in the oven. Your recipe makes it sound so simple, I’m pretty tempted to give it a shot! Love the bowl btw ☺

    Just yesterday, I was thinking of having a go at these. Do you need to boil or prep the sweet potato in any way before backing them? Yours look lovely x
