Mirjam you are truely Zaar's sweet potato Maven ! The roasting intensifies the sweet potato flavor so that it is the perfect foil for the black and cayenne pepper. The garlic adds another layer of flavor and a bit of crunch. Next time I think I'll add a bit of rosemary and serve it with lamb, then maybe thyme, for a roast beef _ how about some sage with pork and then ------
Very tasty!! Loved the flavour & tenderness. I will be more attentive to making the fries the same size next time - I had a little trouble with some burning before others were cooked thoroughly.
5 star all the way - We loved this recipe. Nice & peppy served with a juicy burger. Thanks Mirj for a lovely addition to our Saturday night dinner 3 July 10 Made again and enjoyed just as much!
Didn't have garlic cloves, so used 1/2 tsp. garlic powder instead. Had to cook them longer than recipe in order to get crispy-ness, but otherwise - YUM!!!! Will make again! :) Thanks!
These are so delicious! We make them at least once a week. When I make them into wedges them seem to burn, so I cut mine into about 1 inch wide and 1/2 inch thick fries. And they usually don't take quite as long to cook this way...maybe half the time. I especially love the chunks of garlic at the end....Amazing...Will be making these FOREVER! :)
Perfect! I cut up my potatoes early in the day, dumped them in the water and let them sit for a few hours just so I had one less thing to do, and it worked wonderfully. I think the water-soaking is key in getting a 'crisper' wedge. I'm going to make them again, and try powdered garlic.. I think it might be an easy substitute and spread over the wedges perfectly. Thanks Mirj!
Yummy, slightly crispy. I used chili powder in place of the cayenne pepper, my choice. Used olive oil in place of canola oil. I think that soaking the sweet potatoes does make for a crisper potato. Thanks, Will be making again.
What a wonderful combination of flavors and a welcome change from regular fries. These were a perfect complement to our grilled chicken sandwiches.
Thank you so much for posting this wonderful recipe Mirj...My family & I certainly enjoyed this dish. I didn't have enough garlic so I used 1 clove of garlic and half of a large shallot (finely chopped). It worked great. We will certainly be having sweet potatoes prepared this way again.
I wish I would have made a bigger batch. Everyone loved them.
