Sweet potatoes are amazing aren’t they?! Just like a regular potato – you can roast them, bake them, fry them and pretty much enjoy them any way you want! They also cook a little quicker than regular potatoes so work great if you’re in a hurry.

What can I use sweet potatoes for?

Sweet potatoes work great in SO many dishes! Sweet potato curry is one of my favourites but they’re versatile enough that you can even use them in a breakfast hash. There’s always baked sweet potato too, who doesn’t love a good baked potato?! Sweet potato soup, fries, roasties, mash, salad, frittata – the possibilities are honestly endless. All hail the sweet potato!

How to serve sweet potato wedges

You can simply serve them as a side dish with a main meal or you could make them the star of the show! Turn them into a ‘loaded fries’ bowl by topping them with red onion, grated cheese (use vegan/dairy free cheese for dietary option) and warm through to make everything melted, gooey and delicious. YUM! You can always just put them in a big serving bowl and allow people to help themselves (great for parties!), but my personal favourite is to dip them in sweet chilli sauce. They work SO well together!

Sweet Potato Wedges Recipe Tips

Never made sweet potato wedges before? Fear not! Here are a few helpful tips to help you get it right first time 😀

  • Make sure you cut the wedges roughly the same size. This ensures they cook evenly so you don’t get some burnt & some underdone.
  • It’s important to turn the wedges once during cooking! This will make them nice and golden all over and not just on one side.
  • Don’t overcrowd the pan – if you do, they will steam and not bake. (Making them soft instead of crunchy on the edges!)
  • Do keep an eye on them during cooking! All ovens vary so the cooking times may differ slightly for you.

Homemade Sweet Potato Wedges Recipe

Here is what you will need to serve 2-3 as a side.

(For a printer friendly version, see the recipe card at the end of this post)

  • 2 x Medium (approx 600g) Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

 

Essential Equipment

  • Large Bowl
  • Large Baking Sheet

 

First, preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 190°C.

Next, let’s prep those sweet potatoes! (2 x Medium | approx 600g) Peel them and cut into evenly sized wedges. Do your best to keep them a similar size as this will help them to cook at an even pace – instead of some getting burnt and some being underdone!

Now we need to get rid of some of that starch by giving them a good rinse under running water…

Give them a good swirl under the water, then pat them dry with kitchen roll and place into a large bowl.

Time for some flavour! Drizzle over the olive oil (2 tbsp), garlic powder (1 tsp) and salt (1/2 tsp) then mix really well with your hands. Go on – get in there and get your hands dirty! Make sure everything is nicely coated.

Now spread those gorgeous sweet potato wedges out evenly on a large baking tray. Make sure you keep them to one layer and allow a little room between each one. This helps them to bake properly as opposed to steam – which would give you sad soggy wedges as opposed to crunchy delicious wedges!

Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven then turn them all over. You’ll notice that the top hadn’t browned so much but the bottom has! This is why it’s important to flip them over during cooking. Pop them back into the oven for another 10 minutes until they’re golden all over.

And there you have it! You can serve them straight onto plates as a side, place them all in a sharing bowl and scatter some freshly chopped parsley on top, or even place into a dish, top with cheese and onion then bake until gooey and delicious! The choice is yours my lovely.
