Apparently, eating 500 g of sweet potato at every main meal will make you lose weight. Hmmm…and sweet potatoes are good for diabetics as it controls the blood sugar level in the body. Double hmmm. Motivated at the idea of losing weight by eating lots and lots of sweet potato, I decided to have them for breakfast. Well, breakfast is a main meal. :p

Using Australian sweet potatoes, I cleaned the potatoes and cut them into strips with their skins on. I then sprinkled some turmeric powder, chilli powder, salt and a little bit of olive oil. I put them in the baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Pop them in the oven at very high heat and use the grill setting. Fifteen minutes later, crispy on the outside and very soft in the centre sweet potato fries. They were addictive because of the heat. I’m making these as snacks once work starts. My partner at work will love them too. Well, unless she doesn’t like sweet potatoes.
