Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are not only inexpensive and easily available, but they are also one of the healthiest vegetables out there with a good dose of fibre essential to facilitate digestion. They are an excellent source of vitamin A.  Rich in fibre, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and D, they also have high iron and magnesium ( which helps with chronic fatigue and insomnia!)  content.  Being complex carbohydrates, their natural sugar is released slowly in the body, thus providing balanced energy without any spike in the blood sugar level.

Because sweet potatoes are naturally sweet-tasting, they are a happy recipient of spices and roasting them just intensifies their flavour, caramelizes them on the outside and keeps them tender on the inside.  The taste is sweet, spicy, savoury, crispy all at once.

Making the Baked Sweet Potato Fries:

They are so simple to make….just cut them up, toss them with olive oil, seasonings and let your oven do all the work!

  • Preheat the oven to 200C.
  • Thickly slice the sweet potatoes lengthwise. Toss with olive oil and all the seasonings.
  • Spread out evenly on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning the wedges every 10 minutes until cooked through and lightly browned.
  • I like to put them under the broiler for the last 5-7 minutes to make them extra crispy and blistered.

Dunk them in your favourite sauce ( I used my homemade vegan mayo), eat them on their own or as a delicious side to this veggie burger.
