Spicy Sesame Sweet Potato Fries


  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons of Sesame Seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon of Moroccan Spices (I used a mixed blend of cumin, fennel, paprika, coriander and cinnamon)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil, Melted
  • Salt & Pepper

These are so delicious and a nice twist on how you usually have sweet potatoes. By spicy I don’t necessarily mean hot, more so full of spices! The spices absolutely transform the sweet potatoes, accentuating the sweetness and giving them a little heat while the sesame seeds give them a lovely crunch and a bit of nutiness- heaven. They go great with a drizzle of my Lemony Yoghurt Sauce.



Slice your sweet potato into your desired size, I went for a chunky chip shape.


Combine the sesame seeds, spices, salt and pepper in a large bowl.


Add in the sweet potatoes and drizzle the coconut oil on top. Mix it all around with your hands until the sweets are evenly coated.


Lay them out on a baking sheet and roast at 220’C for about 30 minutes until nice and crisp.


Serve and enjoy!
