Sweet potatoes are a great alternative for those of you who are avoiding nightshades in their diet, or just want an interesting alternative to regular fries.
Sweet potatoes are a great source of vitamin A which is a pretty big deal in terms of normal vision, the immune system, and reproduction. Recent research has also suggested that they have anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants.
Plus, they taste great!
Ingredients – 2 Servings
2 Large sweet potatoes
Pinch of salt
2 Tablespoons of chopped rosemary (fresh or dried, whatever you have in the cupboard)
2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped or smooshed with a garlic smoosher
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Preheat the oven to 180 and line a pan with baking paper or tinfoil.
Leaving the skin on, roughly chop the potatoes into either fries, wedges or chunky fries. This is completely up to you – the choices are overwhelming I know, I prefer fries personally.
Pop into a bowl and pour over the salt, rosemary and garlic.
Stir all together and then put onto the lined paper.
Leave to cook for about 20 mins before flipping them over/giving them a good shake and then cook for another 15 mins or until crispy on the edges.
