18 Dec smokey sweet potato fries
These sweet potato fries use a cajun-style combination of seasonings for a deliciously smokey flavour.
Smokey Sweet Potato Fries
Serves 4 (easily doubled)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
1 large sweet potato
3 sprigs of fresh thyme
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
A pinch of cayenne pepper
A pinch of salt
A pinch of pepper
2 tablespoons of olive oil
- Pre- heat your oven to 200c/180c fan/gas mark 6.
- Slice the sweet potato into thin fries, and place them in a roasting tray. Add the paprika, cayenne, thyme, salt, pepper and oil. Mix everything really well so that the spices are evenly distributed.
- Roast in the hot oven for 30 minutes or until cooked through. Serve hot with a sprinkling of sea salt on top.
Kidney Beans: When you use pork shoulder in a chilli as opposed to minced meat, it’s the addition of heat-packed chillis and red kidney beans that distinguish it from a delicious goulash. Biona Organic kidney beans are a brand I often stock up on. Keep a tin or two of in your cupboard in anticipation of your next chilli party.
