Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

A tasty pick me up; rich in flavour and spiced with goodness; a carnival favourite for everyone. Enjoy them as a starter or side dish, and accompany with the dips from my previous post https://isaporidelmondo.wordpress.com/2020/08/01/plantain-chips-and-dips/

Ingredients:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into fries
  • Olive Oil
  • Maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 7.
  2. Once you have chopped the sweet potato, give it a rinse and pat down with paper towels, when dry put into a bowl.
  3. Season the fries with the cayenne, paprika and season with salt and pepper; mix thoroughly with your hands.
  4. Transfer the fries onto a baking tray, spacing them out evenly.
  5. Drizzle on a little olive oil and maple syrup. Just as a little side note, the more drizzle the more likely the fries will soften, so if you fancy a crispier crunch apply sparingly.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes (rotate occasionally) or until crispy.

Best served hot
