{Recipe} Baked Sweet Potato Truffle Fries (with Rosemary)

Looooove truffle anything!

Just got a bottle of truffle oil and am drizzling it on everything I can - eggs, toast, pasta, mashed potatoes, fries ;)

These sweet potato fries are salty-sweet, crunchy and so addictive. Not to mention it's a healthy snack to curb your greasy cravings. Laden with Vitamin A, B6 and C, sweet potatoes pack a nutritional punch. They are also a good source of magnesium, iron and potassium which are essential minerals for healthy cardiac function, proper functional immune system and nervous system!

I chose to bake instead of frying them, sounds almost like a guilt-free indulgence?

 Sweet potatoes however, have a higher moisture content that normal potatoes. Hence it is harder to crisp them up like standard fries. Therefore I used some cornstarch + high temperature to bake these :)

Slightly crispy on the outside, and lusiously soft, sweet and creamy inside :') 
Baked Sweet Potato Truffle Fries

5 sweet potatoes (washed, peeled and sliced into wedges)
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
   1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
    2½ tablespoons cornstarch
1 Tbsp truffle oil
Grated Parmesan cheese


    1. Preheat the oven to 220C.

    2. Place the cut sweet potato wedges in a large bowl; add in all the other ingredients except the truffle oil and Parmesan cheese. Toss and mix thoroughly to combine.

   3. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the fries, placing them as far apart as possible and arrange them in a single layer.

    4. Bake 15 minutes on one side, then flip the fries and bake 10 to 15 additional minutes until the fries are dry and slightly browned; watch them carefully since the cooking time can depend on the thickness and the heat of your oven. 

   5. Remove from the oven and let them cool for about 5 minutes.

6. Drizzle in truffle oil and sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top! I added some fresh Rosemary for colour and an extra kick of flavour :)

Fries will turn soft quickly, so serve them warm! x
