  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • cooking oil spray
  1. Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into chunkier fries, then soak in cold water for about one or two hours, then drain the water and pat them dry using kitchen paper.

  2. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius (430 Fahrenheit).

  3. Sprinkle the sweet potatoes with salt and paprika.

  4. Drizzle the oil onto a baking tray, and pop it in the oven for 2-3 minutes, until the oil becomes hot.

  5. Arrange the sweet potatoes on the tray, leaving some space between them, if necessary, work in batches to avoid overcrowding.

  6. Spray the potatoes with oil spray, or use some more regular oil, then bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, turning them on the other side half the way through.

  7. Depending on your oven they might need to be in the oven or less or longer time, so do check them after 20 minutes.

  8. Serve hot.
