Ingredients

  • 1 kg sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into batons
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Lime wedges

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 230 degrees C.
  • 2. Toss the sweet potato batons with the olive oil, paprika, cayenne pepper and sea salt (to taste). Spread them in a single layer onto a large baking tray and bake for 30 mins, stirring occasionally, till fries are golden brown.
  • 3. Serve with lime wedges (or, for something more cooling, some sour cream or low fat natural yoghurt)

Notes

Not quite fries in the conventional sense - they are quite soft with a little chewiness. However, don't let that put you off - they're beautifully spiced, PLUS low GI and low fat!
