5 large sweet potatoes

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

3 tbsp of olive oil

A good handful of fresh herbs

1 tsp of sea salt

1 tsp of freshly ground black pepper

 

Pestle and mortar

Large mixing bowl

Roasting tin

Serves 4

These sweet and spicy little wedges knock the socks off greasy fast food chips any day. If you haven’t tried sweet potatoes before, this is a great introduction recipe, where you just can’t go wrong. Serve as a nice side dish or a quick and tasty snack! If I am serving these as a side dish, I generally prepare them first and let them cook away in the oven while I get on with the rest of the dinner.

Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5. In a pestle and mortar, bash together the a little of the olive oil, the herbs, garlic and sea salt until you have a smooth paste. Peel the sweet potatoes and slice in half length ways and then in half again, then chop into rough chips. Place in a bowl and toss with the herb paste.
Place in a large roasting tin and drizzle with a little extra oil and sprinkle with ground black pepper until all the chips are well coated. Roast in the oven for about 40–45 minutes, or until the insides are soft and the edges are slightly charred.

    Hey, every time i make these, they come out a bit too chewy and never the slightest bit crispy. Do you know why ? Do I make them too big ? The oven is not warm enough ? Too warm ?

    Thankks !!

      If you get extra crispy potato fries, they are usually deep fried. You can get a good crisp in the oven but you do have to leave them in for a long time! :)
