4 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into fry-shaped pieces (try to cut them to relatively similar sizes so that they all bake evenly)
2 tbsp. olive oil
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 220°C Gas mark 7
Place the fries into a mixing bowl and mix with the olive oil, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to ensure that they are all evenly coated
Pour the fries onto a non-stick baking tray and arrange in a single layer so that they crisp up
Bake for 15 minutes, then turn over so that they cook on both sides
Bake for a further 10- 15 minutes until crispy.
