Sweet Potato Oven Fries – CSIRO

SERVES 4

PREPARATION 5 minutes

COOKING 50 minutes

  • 1 sweet potato (about 600 g), cut into 5 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm strips, steamed and chilled overnight (see page 41)
  • olive oil spray, for cooking

Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C fan-forced).

Place the sweet potato in a roasting tin in a single layer, spray with olive oil and bake for 45–50 minutes or until golden and tender, turning halfway through the cooking time.

Season with freshly ground black pepper and serve.

NB. cooking starchy food like potatoes and rice, then letting them cool overnight and consuming them the next day marginally increases the amount of resistant starch they contain. (pg 41)
