SERVES 4

 

INGREDIENTS

2 sweet potatoes

Olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

A few sprigs rosemary, finely chopped

 

METHOD

1. Preheat the oven to 200C to 220C.

2. Cut the sweet potato into sticks (keep the skin on if you prefer).

3. In a large bowl toss the sweet potato with a couple tbsp olive oil, enough to make them glossy but not drowning in oil. Season with salt, pepper and rosemary.

4. Lay the sweet potato fries onto a baking sheet. Do not overcrowd as they need space to crisp up.

5. Cook on one side for 10 to 15 minutes then turn over and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes until browned and tender. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
