  A clever swap for starchy potato fries, this recipe can be tailored to use your favorite herbs and spices. I like to use a lot of paprika on mine but you can let the natural flavors shine by simply seasoning them to taste with salt and pepper. The cornstarch is in there to crisp up the edges and is a handy little trick to keep up your sleeve when roasting any vegetable to make fries or wedges.

Ingredients (serves 4 as a side or snack)

  • 2 large carrots, peeled
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornflourSalt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon spice or herb of your choice such as paprika, tarragon, chili powder or cumin (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and cut the carrots and sweet potatoes into the shape of fries. Make sure that they are all about the same size.
  2. In a bowl toss the fries in olive oil, cornstarch and your preferred seasoning.
  3. Place on a baking tray in a single layer and cook for approximately 40 minutes or until tender on the inside and crisp on the outside. Cooking time may vary based on how large you cut the fries.
  4. Serve with a sauce of your choice and enjoy.
