Maple Roasted Sweet Potato
A simple recipe for roasting sweet potato chunky chips.
The day I made this I was planning on making gluten-free, vegan falafel. I made them up and then tried to deep fry them and they just fell apart in the oil. I gave up on making them vegan and beat in an egg – they still fell apart. So I turned them into patties and baked them instead – which is what veggie burgers below are. As I was determined to post a recipe that day I went ahead and made these. To be honest, it turned out to be quite a nice meal.
Maple roasted sweet potato – sweet potato are already very sweet but adding maple syrup to them, some spice and roasting or rather caramelizing them in the oven just make them very filling and a perfect side to a very savoury meal.
Sweet potatoes are surprisingly nutritious. They are a very good source of vitamin A and are rich in other vitamins like B & C. I’m not sure how well these vitamins survive roasting but they also have a little iron, are rich in potasium and magnesium and they are a good source of fibre. This page tells you a little more about the benefits of sweet potatoes.
The thing I like about these fries is that a little goes a long way, they are so full on flavour that they really make you feel full. Well, that’s what I find. Try them for yourself.
