  • 400 g sweet potato
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch sea salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch/corn flour
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley


  • Cut the sweet potatoes into fries about 15mm thick.
  • Soak the fries in a bowl of water for 10 minutes. Dry with a towel.
  • Place the soaked and dried potatoes in a large bowl and add the oil, cornstarch, garlic and parsley and mix well.
  • Place them on to a baking tray and spread out so there is enough space between the fries.
  • Five: Put them in a preheated oven at 200C for 15 minutes. Flip the fries and then cook for a further 20 minutes, or until crispy. Sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving.



  • To get crispy fries, soak them in water first and make sure they are dried well.
  • Mix cornstarch with your seasoning for extra crispy fries.
  • It's important to make sure you don't put too many fries in one pan, so space them out.
  • Get creative with the seasoning. A Cajun or Mexican blend seasoning would work well.
