Sweet Potato Fries

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

I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way.

It’s my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible.

    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 ā˜ŗ

      Aww thank you! If you feel they are drying half way through the baking time spray or drizzle some more olive oil on. Let me know how it goes xxxx

    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
