Sweet potato fries: a healthy alternative to chips.

Like millions of other people in the world, I am a huge sucker for chips/fries. If there is ever a side dish option of salad or chips, without a doubt I will opt for chips every.single.time. However like many others I’m sure; I realise that constantly eating chips isn’t the greatest thing for your body and can actually be pretty detrimental for your health. Therefore as a healthy alternative, I have recently discovered the beauty of eating ‘sweet potato fries’ instead. These make a great snack when feeling peckish, and are incredibly cheap and easy to make. Here’s how I do it…

You will need:
  • 1 medium sized sweet potato,
  • Olive oil,
  • Sea salt,
  • Cracked black pepper,
  • Rosemary.
Wash your sweet potato and then simply cut it up into chunky ‘chip’ sized shapes, making sure that they’re big enough to avoid burning. Once you have finished cutting your sweet potato, place your fries onto a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Next, place your chips into the oven at about 180-200° and leave to bake for approximately 12 minutes. After 12 minutes, take your baking tray out of the oven, and turn each chip over so that the other side can bake. Once you have turned each chip over, place your tray back into the oven for another 12 minutes or so. After 12 minutes, simply serve your fries in a nice bowl, season with sea salt and black pepper, and garnish with rosemary. 

I hope you like my recipe and find these fries just as yummy as I do! Have fun cooking!
