Sweet Potato Goodness

Sweet Potato Goodness

Sweet potatoes are sooooo good, and because they taste so yummy I do have a little addiction to them at the moment. One of my favourite meals is steak, sweet potato fries and greens (either salad or veggies). We don't have this very often but when we do I salivate with every mouthful and am completely devastated when my plate is empty. 100 grams of sweet potato contains 1.6 g protein, 0.1 g total fats and 20.1 g carbohydrate. This delicious, golden and sweet vegetable is packed full of vitamin A, C, K choline, folate, calcium, magnasium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and selenium; it is completely versatile with many creations made possible when you let your imagination run away with you. I have used it in mash, as lasagne 'sheets', whole baked with beans and cheese on top, fries, as toast, roasted in the oven, in brownies, in sweet and savoury muffins...the list goes on... Here is a quick recipe for sweet potato fries


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • salt & pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 220°C. Coat a tray with olive oil spray
  • Cut the sweet potato into thin strips
  • Add to a bowl with the oil, salt and pepper and stir until the sweet potato is covered in the oil
  • Place the sweet potato on the tray in an even layer
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes depending on how think your fries are. Keep an eye on your fries and take them out when they are golden and crunchy or leave in longer if needed.
  • Transfer to a serving plate and enjoy as a part of your meal
