Healthy Kitchen: Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I don’t know anyone who does not like fries! If you don’t, give us a shout out in the comments below! And if you do like them, share with us what is your favourite way to have them? I can’t lie, I like mine with ketchup!

However, traditional “french fries” is not the healthiest option, especially if we eat them all of the time. So in this post I am bringing you one of my favourite healthy kitchen secrets: baked sweet potato fries!

Sweet potatoes are awesome: they are indeed sweet but they are also a great source of Vitamins A, C, and B6. Plus, they usually have fewer calories than regular potatoes – funny, right?

So here’s my recipe for doing some tasty baked sweet potato fries at home:

  • one third of a sweet potato (the ones I buy at Aldi are very big)
  • sesame oil
  • parsley
  • sea salt

All the ingredients I used were from Aldi UK

 

How to do:

  • Pre-heat the oven at 220 degrees
  • Cut the portion you need from a sweet potato
  • Wash your sweet potato piece thoroughly
  • Cut your sweet potato in “french fries” style
  • Season your raw sweet potato fries with a little bit of sesame oil, sea salt & parsley
  • Make sure your fries are well coated (but don’t put either too much oil nor salt)
  • Put some kitchen foil in a tray and spread your fries evenly
  • Let it bake for 20-30 minutes
