Upgrade your potato options

Sweet potatoes have a far greater nutritional value than standard white potatoes.

If switching to sweet potato mash is initially too much of a stretch, consider mixing the two to start.

Or baked spicy sweet potato wedges instead of chips:


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sprinkle of salt, pepper and chilli powder to taste

(Tip: you may find it easier to cut the sweet potatoes if you microwave them for a couple of minutes)


  • Heat oven to 200° C / 400° F .
  • Place sweet potatoes in a large bowl and gently coat with oil.
  • Season with chili powder, salt and pepper; toss gently to coat.
  • Spread potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, turning once, until brown and tender.
  • Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
