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.
