Oil- free Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

Yesterday I dedicated a whole, rather lengthy, post to the wonder that is the humble sweet potato.
Today I am sharing with you my first attempt at baking Oil-free Spicy Sweet Potato Fries. Having seen many an Instagram post of other people’s delicious looking oil-free fries, I wanted to give it a go myself, so here goes…


  • 1 x medium sweet potato per person, washed, sliced and chopped in to chunky fries, skin left on
  • Spices of choice – I used smoked paprika + cayenne pepper
  • Seasoning of freshly ground black peppercorns + pink Himalayan sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Put sweet potatoe fries in a mixing bowl and add seasoning + spices. The amount of each will be determined by the size of your sweet potato & how many portions you are making. You want to have a good covering on all sides.
  3. Put fries on a baking tray, in 1 layer and bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until they have started to brown.
  4. Remove tray from oven, turn over or toss fries and replace in oven for another 10-15 minutes.
  5. Remove when golden on all sides and serve.

Cooking times will vary depending on how many fries you’re making and the power of your oven, so best to keep an eye on them.

And that’s it. I served mine with a delicious homemade guacamole; made with 1/2 avocado, chopped baby plum tomatoes, diced red onion + lashing of freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Anyone else have any oil-free recipes or tip they’d like to share? Let me know!
