Ingredients (serves 4):
1.7 lbs. (800g) sweet potatoes
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. paprika powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
pinch cayenne pepper, to taste
1 tsp. sea salt
4 tbsp. mayonnaise (I like to use avocado mayonnaise!)
2-3 tsp. sriracha sauce
1. Heat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
2. Cut the sweet potatoes into sticks ¼ to ½ inch wide and 3 inches long. Toss them with the oil and spices, mixing well to ensure the sweet potato is coated.
3. Spread the sweet potato out on a baking tray lined with baking paper and place in the oven. Bake until brown and crispy, about 15 minutes, then flip and cook for a further 10 minutes.
4. Make a spicy mayonnaise dipping sauce by mixing together your mayonnaise of choice and sriracha sauce and serve alongside the fried.
