Skinny sweet potato “fries”

Recipe from: 14 October 2015
recipe, sweet potato, fries

Ingredients 4
Servings 2
Time 00:20


  • 2
    medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • Cooking oil
  • Sea Salt or Smoked Salt
  • Freshly ground black Peppercorns


Pre-heat your oven to 220ºC.

Wash the sweet potatoes, but don’t peel them.

Using a large, sharp knife, cut the tips of the sweet potato off, then cut them in half lengthwise. Continue to cut them lengthwise until you have strips that are between 5 and 10mm thick.

Drizzle with your preferred oil and then season with salt & pepper. With your hands, lightly toss the fries to make sure that they are all covered in the oil.
Spread the fries on a flat baking tray and place on the top rack of the pre-heated oven.

Bake for 20 minutes, giving the fries a good shake just after midway.

Once the fries are soft, turn on the oven’s grill/broiler to high and cook for another couple of minutes. Be careful not to burn the fries, you just want to scorch them slightly. There is a fine line between charred and cremated – so keep an eye on them!

Place the cooked fries on some adsorbent kitchen paper to drain momentarily and then serve immediately.
