Slicing the sweet potatoes

First, pick up your sweet potatoes. You'll need 3 medium sweet potatoes (250-300g each). Look for sweet potatoes with a reddish skin that's smooth and firm. Start with rinsing them and peeling off the skin. If using organic one, you can leave the skin. 

Prepare the wooden cutting board and a really sharp knife. Cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise. Then, cut each half into half. Finally, cut each quater into thin wedges (about 1cm thick) to ensure that each one is well seasoned with herbs and spice.


Seasoning the wedges

These easy sweet potato wedges are so delicious thanks to the seasoning. We'll be using Italian seasoning here, which is a mix of dried herbs (usually containing basil, oregano, thyme and rosemary).

This mix can be purchased in a regular store these days. If you don't have Italian seasoning, you can use any combination of herbs you have on hand.



Plus, we added a dash of ground allspice, another mix, this time mix of spices with warm winter notes. A sprinkle of fine sea salt, once wedges are baked will round the flavour.

Once you have ready the wedges, place them into a large bowl. Sprinkle allspice and Italian herbs mix over them, then pour the olive oil over. Stir using your hands until wedges are evenly coated. Our wedges are ready to be baked!




Baking the wedges

These wedges are baked in only 15 minutes. Arrange them on the baking sheet (lined with baking paper) in one layer. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip over each wedge and continue to bake for another 5 minutes. The aromatic scent will fill your kitchen while these simple snack is baked!

Once they are golden and soft, remove them from the oven, transfer to a plate.

And to balance out the sweet, we love to sprinkle them with a little bit of sea salt all over them! Enjoy!
