Sweet Potato Oven Fries

*Sweet Potato Oven Fries*
Serves 4

These are so quick to make and so full of goodness. You can vary the spices if you wish, but this is the combination we love. It’s a great combination of sweet and savoury. I could eat a whole plate of these and nothing else!

4 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed and dried well
2 TBS olive oil
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp of mild chili powder
½ tsp of garlic powder
½ tsp of onion powder

Pre-heat your oven to 205*C/425*F/ gas mark 6. Lightly grease a shallow baking tray and set aside.

Take your sweet potatoes and cut them into medium wedges lengthwise. There is no need to peel them. I think the peels give them even more flavour. Put them into a bowl along with the olive oil and all the spices. Give them a really good stir, making sure they are coated evenly. Scatter them onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.

Pop the baking sheet into the heated oven and bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes until they are tender and starting to brown, turning once, halfway through the baking period. Remove from the oven and serve right away. They will not be as crispy as regular potatoes would be, but they sure are delicious!
