Sublime Sweet Potato Fries with rosemary and garlic

Do you love classic French fries but watching your carbs? The glorious sweet potato comes to the rescue as a perfect alternative for the humble white spud.

Next time you’re at your local green grocer check out some of the new varieties; red, white and purple sweet potatoes and be sure to pop a few in your trolley. The different colours don’t necessarily cook up the colour they started, only adding to the interest!

This recipe is so versatile and a great base from which you can adapt for your next wheat-free nacho’s or cottage pie topping!
