I run. I eat. I travel.

Uhhhhmmm… yeah. Duh. They’re fries and therefore delicious! We’re not talking soggy, terrible, over salted and tasteless fast food fries but fragrant, crisp and amazing homemade sweet potato fries that are whipped up in no time.





1 big sweet potato

1 sprig rosemary

1 clove garlic

1 tbs olive oil (or coconut oil)

salt, pepper to taste


For the dip:

1/2 cup greek yoghurt

1/2 lime


Cut the potato in half lengthwise and slice it into bite sized wedges.

Fill a big bowl with water, add the potato pieces and a cup of ice. Leave the mix in there for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.




Dry the potatoes with a paper towel and add oil, chopped rosemary and garlic. Toss until all slices are covered well with oil, then place them on a cooling rack lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with salt an pepper.

Bake for 30 minutes until well browned and flip at halftime.


Mix the greek yoghurt with lime juice and serve immediately.

  1. Delicious! So simple, but such a great combination!

  2. Mmm these look great, love rosemary 🙂

  3. I like the kind of dressing!

  4. Why Water? I mean why “Fill a big bowl with water, add the potato pieces and a cup of ice. Leave the mix in there for 30 minutes.” — what is the benefit?

    i stir the fires with corn starch / powder, makes a nice cripsy coating, same with pumpkins

    • They’ll keep their form better when baking and won’t mush or fall apart when being picked up afterwards because the cold ‘closes off’ the cut surface and keeps the moisture inside. I haven’t coated them with starch before, so there’s something to try, but I’ve done them without the cooling thing and they just totally fell apart.
