What’s better than sweet potato fries? Harissa sweet potato fries, that’s what.
These smoky, spicy, sweet chips are not only full of delicious flavour but they are healthy and almost fat-free, to boot!
I’m afraid I did “cheat” and used shop-bought harissa paste but perhaps I’ll try a homemade version and blog about it sometime soon to make up for it…
After trying these for the first time, I made a big bag of them to keep marinading in the fridge because I know I’m going to want some more of these to hand.
I like them just to snack on but they would be amazing served along side a burger or served as part of a spicy buddha bowl.
These fries are:
- Vegetarian and vegan
- Gluten-free, grain-free and paleo-friendly
- Low-fat (only 0.8g per serving!)
- Low calorie and diet-friendly
- High in vitamin A and vitamin C
Oil-Free Harissa Sweet Potato Wedges
- 1 large sweet potato
- 2 tsp harissa paste
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 200C / 390F and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Slice the sweet potato into fries (no need to peel!) and add to a ziplock bag.
Add the harissa, garlic powder and salt and pepper to the bag then seal and shake vigorously until the fries are well coated.
Transfer to the baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with ketchup, vegan mayo or extra harissa and enjoy!
