spiralised sweet potato fries

These spiralised sweet potato fries are a great alternative to popcorn, they also work wonderfully as a side! Yummy sweet potato spiralised, tossed through some tasty oil and popped into the oven. These scrummy spiralised sweet potato fries are very fast to make, tasty and pretty healthy too! I made a marinade we fancied - you can adapt it to suit your taste buds. How big is a sprinkle* after all? If you're after a simple hand-held spiraliser, here's a link to the one we use. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 glugs of olive oil
  • 1 glug of maple syrup
  • good grinding of balck pepper
  • sprinkling of ground smoked paprika
  • sprinkling of ground cayenne pepper*

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (fan oven) Scrub your sweet potato and cut out any dodgy bits! (You can peel it if you prefer - I like keeping as much of the skin on as possible.)

  2. In a bowl add all the ingredients for your marinade, mix it up so everything is combined.

  3. Spiralise your sweet potato (the photo is one sweet potato). Toss the spiralised sweet potato through the marinade mix, once it's all coated pop onto a waiting baking tray. Place in the oven for about 12 minutes - it's important to move the sweet potato around every 4 minutes so it can go crispy

  4. When its cooked pop it onto some kitchen towel to absorb any excess grease, pop into a bowl and grind a bit of salt over the top.

Notes:

*The marinade can be as hot and spicy as you like or you can make it really mild and use herbs to add flavour rather than cayenne & paprika.
