These sweet potato fries will leave u wanting for more… They are salty-sweet and crunchy. Baked sweet potato fries have been one of my favorite snacks.
Sweet Potatoes are Nutritious,unlike regular deep-fried French fries, these baked sweet potato fries have a lot of redeeming nutrition properties.

Sweet potatoes are also full of antioxidants and fiber, and have some beneficial blood sugar-regulating properties. Plus, they’re a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6 (source).

So here goes the recipe…

Ingredients:

200 gms Sweet potatoes (about 2 medium).

2 tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.

1/4 tsp Chilli Flakes.

Salt and black pepper to taste.

1 tbsp chopped Parsley for garnishing.

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200°C .

Wash the sweet potatoes and cut them into fry-shaped pieces about ¼″ wide and ¼″ thick. Try to cut them into similarly sized pieces so the fries will bake evenly.

Add oil, salt,pepper powder and chilli flakes to the fries. Toss until the fries are lightly coated.

Arrange the fries in a single layer on a baking tray lined with silver foil and don’t overcrowd otherwise they will never crisp up.

Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the fries so they can cook on all sides.

Bake for 10 more minutes, or until the fries are crispy. Keep an eye on them, as they can turn from crisp to burnt quickly.

Remove in a serving bowl, garnish with chopped parsley and serve warm!

Happy Cooking!!!

Sameera.
