I used up the remnant of the Australia Sweet Potatoes and turned them into herbs baked fries....it was one finger lickin' good snack for Wild Boar and myself :p Each a plate to ourselves reading cartoons and watching drama series together...awww this is what I called a blissful night :))) Simple to make and it was one finger lickin' good baked fries. ....... herbs infused olive oil is the magic potion in this recipe !
I have fresh herbs growing in my little patch I called my unkept garden...hahaha I really have no time to keep the garden spick and spank. I have fresh herbs like dill, rosemary , thyme and oregano growing in hanging pots...why hanging ? well my friends the garden snails will eat them up before I can enjoy them , thus I hang them up on my curry leave tree :p so my fresh herbs are safe from the snails :)
All I did was just pluck a few sprigs of oregano, dill and rosemary to make this herbs infused oil for baking these fries. Ground some black pepper and mix them together...olive oil and the chopped herbs. Marinate the sweet potatoes ( cut into long strips ) with the herbs infused olive oil for 10 minutes . Lay them on aluminium foil and baked at 200ºC for 30-35 minutes. Keep turning the sweet potato strips so that they are evenly browned. Once they are evenly browned and the skin are crispy and the inside cooked, take them out of the oven and sprinkle cayenne pepper and table salt over them and let them cool down before serving.
