Homemade sweet potato fries


[Serves 4]

2 large sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 dessert spoon sea salt
1 dessert spoon dried rosemary (fresh rosemary would be even better)
1 tablespoon honey
Black pepper (to taste)


1. Preheat the oven to 170°C
2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into chunky chips
3. Put all these sweet potato pieces into a glass pyrex dish
4. In a small bowl, mix the remaning ingredients
5. Pour the mixture over the sweet potato chips and toss them around, to coat each one
6. Place the dish in the oven and bake for around 40mins, but keep checking them along the way 
7. Serve hot and with your favourite condiment (mine would have to be mayonnaise yummm)!

The great thing about baked sweet potato is that it tastes even better cold! I used the leftovers the next day to make a simple salad for lunch. 
I just cut the fries up into smaller pieces, placed them on a bed of rocket, threw in some avocado, halloumi cheese and pomegranate seeds then drizzled a simple balsamic dressing over the top and voila!
