Sweet Potato Fries

Everyone loves fries but we all know how bad the commercially available ones are for us (helloooooo canola oil, trans fats and other unspeakable food-like substances!)

Luckily, there is an alternative, and it is super healthy and really easy to make. This is how.

Serves 1.


1 medium sweet potato 

1 tbs of nutritional yeast (sold in Whole Foods or health food shops)

Olive oil

Sea salt


Preheat the oven to 400F and line an oven tray with parchment paper. 

Wash the sweet potato. If desired, peel skin (I prefer mine skin on). 

Slice sweet potato into fry-like shapes. The smaller the fries, the better they will roast, making them crispier. Keep large fries if you like the softer version.

Place cut fries in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil, enough to cover each fry lightly. Add nutritional yeast and use your hands to mix and coat all fries. Season with salt. The nutritional yeast adds a lovely cheesy flavour to the sweet potato. 

Place fries on the baking sheet and roast for around 40 minutes, turning after 20 or so minutes. Keep an eye on them, as some oven temperatures are hotter than others. Keep roasting if you like them crispier until they get a little burnt on the edges. Feel free to add more salt and nutritional yeast if desired. 

Eat as a snack, or as a side dish. Also great dipped in salsa verde or aioli!
