A simple recipe for homemade sweet potato fries.
Ingredients (serves 4 | makes 4 side servings)
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 drizzle of olive oil
- 1 Either a combination of salt and pepper, to taste, or a generous sprinkle of mexican spice
- Preheat your oven to 160C, fan-forced, and line 2-3 baking trays with foil. Then chop your sweet potato either into large thirds, or halves, and then chop off their skins.
- Place the flat side of these pieces down, then chop these pieces into thirds again, and then cut out long strips about the width of your finger. If your chips at this stage are too thick, i.e. thicker than your finger, chop them in half (like a hotdog bun) to create two thinner, but the same length, chips.
- Put them into a plastic bag with a generous splash of olive oil, enough to coat them as well as the seasoning of your choice. Allow some air in the bag, then hold the top shut and shake the chips all around to get them coated.
- Place the chips onto the trays, but make sure they’re not over-crowded and touching, as this will make them soggy.
- Place these trays into the oven and bake for fifteen minutes, then flip all of the chips over and bake for another fifteen minutes. If you have a slow oven, you might have to bake them longer, or vice versa for a more powerful oven, but make sure to watch that the chips don’t burn.
- Serve, (these taste great with tomato sauce.)
