I love kitchen gadgets and appliances, so much so I have a whole pantry size cupboard full of them. I have had my ActiFry for quite a while now and we use it at least once a week. At first I only used it to make standard potato chips or wedges which by the way are insanely good. Then I realised you can use it to make a whole host of things. So lately we have used it for sausages, croutons, homemade chicken goujons and most recently garlic dough balls and these spiralled sweet potato fries. Whilst the ActiFry is not the cheapest appliance in my kitchen its one of my most used. We have the Express XL and it can take up to 1.5kg of chips in one go!
This recipe takes no more than 15 mins including prep and cooking time, perfect to make for a (reasonably) healthy light lunch or snack.
Spiralizers are also really handy gadgets – whether its for making courgetti or squash noodles or just for making carrots and other veggies more fun for kids, I recommend getting one! Mine is from OXO, its fairly small but does the job and hardly any space in my cupboard – result!
I should warn you that they are slightly addictive – BUT you can feel good about eating them as they are good for you too!
If you do not have an ActiFry you could also bake these in a hot oven.
You will need:
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled
1 tbsp of rapeseed oil
1 tbsp of smoked paprika (or seasoning of your choice)
1/2 tsp sea salt
Using a spiraliser create long noodles from your sweet potatoes, use kitchen towel to remove extra moisture and place in a bowl, add your oil, salt and paprika and rub to distribute. Add to your actifry and set for 10 minutes. Check occasionally, they may need a minute to two less or more. Easy!
Pictured is one serving. You should get 3-4 servings – depending on how hungry you are.
