Golden Syrup Sweet Potato Oven Fries

We’ve been trying to eat a few less carbs lately so a low GI based vegetable that had all the crunchiness and taste of normal fries was just the ticket.  These sweet potato fries become especially sweet and sticky from the Golden Syrup which I prefer to the normal addition of Maple Syrup which I don’t think is sweet  enough or thick enough to properly coat the fries.

Fries before going into oven – a shallow sheet pan is crucial here so the fries get crispy instead of steaming.

Ingredients – Serves 2 -3

2 large sweet potatoes

Olive oil

Salt & pepper

2 tablespoons Golden Syrup

Preheat oven to 220 C

Peel and slice sweet potatoes into evenly sized narrow shaped fries.  Place on a narrow non stick baking sheet and drizzle with enough olive pool to coat the fries well.  Sprinkle with salt and freshly found pepper.  Add Golden Syrup and toss the sweet potatoes in the oil and syrup, this is best done with your hands. Put into the preheated oven and roast for 40 – 50 minutes spending on the heat of your oven.  Check after 40 and if they’re not roasted enough increase the heat and roast for a further 10  minutes or so but keep an eye on them so as they don’t get too dark.

Sooooo good!
