These sweet potato wedges are lusciously soft, and when roasted with a sprinkling of paprika make an ideal accompaniment to fillets of fish, chicken or pork. They are ridiculously simple to make as well, and only take half an hour in a hot oven.
RECIPE – feeds 2
300g sweet potatoes
2 tsp paprika
Preheat the oven to 200C/ 180C fan /Gas 6.
Wash the sweet potatoes then, leaving the skin on, slice them into thin wedges. Place them in a shallow baking tray, drizzle them with olive oil – just enough to coat them – then sprinkle the paprika over them. Using your hands, rub the oil and paprika over the wedges ensuring that every surface is coated.
Spread out in a single layer and roast in the centre of the oven for around 30 minutes, until well browned and meltingly soft.
Be generous with the portion sizes, these are very moreish!
