Sweet potato fries are a great alternative to regular fries – they’re more nutrient dense, and high in Vitamin A. Not to mention – they’re delicious! These fries are seasoned with Lofoten Seaweed’s BBQ & Meat spice blend – a hot and smoky blend of smoked paprika, chilli, garlic and winged kelp. These fries would make a great side dish for our spiced chickpea burger, or our seaweed rice burger – or just as a snack on their own! Seasoned with truffle seaweed salt for an indulgent flavour of white truffles and a hint of ocean freshness.
Makes 4 portions
500g sweet potatoes, peeled
2 tsp Truffle Seaweed Salt
2 tbsp olive oil
4 shakes of BBQ & Meat spice blend
2 tsp cornflour
Slice the sweet potatoes into batons. Put into a large bowl filled with cold water, then leave to soak for at least 30 minutes (or even overnight).
Preheat the oven to 220°C. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper.
Drain the sweet potatoes and pat dry with kitchen paper or a tea towel. Dry the bowl, and put the sweet potatoes back. Add the cornflour, season with the BBQ & Meat spice blend, drizzle with the oil, and shake to coat. The cornflour should be completely absorbed.
Spread the fries out on the baking tray in a single layer. Roast for 30 minutes, pausing halfway through to flip the fries to ensure all sides become crispy.
When the fries are crispy and golden all over, remove and dress with the Truffle Seaweed Salt. Serve with your favourite condiment!
