Serves: 1 

  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1 to 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 fresh red chillies
  • fresh thyme

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Peel the sweet potato and cut into either chip shapes or cut into decent sized cubes.
  2. Parboil potatoes for 8 to 10 minutes in boiling water.
  3. Whilst potatoes are parboiling, pre-heat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
  4. Once potatoes are done, drain water and shake in a colander to rough up the edges.
  5. Crush the garlic cloves and dice the chillies, then mix with the potatoes and thyme. Place in a single layer on a baking tray.
  6. Place into oven and cook for 30 to 35 minutes, or until your preferred goldeness. Eat and enjoy.


For a flavour boost, try tossing the parboiled potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper before roasting.
