Skinny sweet potato fries

Par boiling the sweet potatoes in hot water and using semolina gives you that dreamy crispy coating. Literally tastes like fried chips! But so much healthier.

Ingredients: (serves 4)

  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp semolina
  • 2 tsp onion granules
  • 2 tsp garlic granules
  • Sea salt


  1. Switch the oven on to 180 degrees C.
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes into long strips.
  3. Get a pan of boiling water on the hob and add the sweet potato pieces. Boil for about 5-7 minutes until partially soft.
  4. Drain off the water and give them a little shake to get a fluffy edge.
  5. Put on a tray with some olive oil, semolina, onion and garlic granules.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, turning halfway.
  7. Top with sea salt.
