Calories 132, Protein 2g, Carbs 16g, Fats 7g


4 sweet potatoes, washed and left unpeeled

1 teaspoon of salt

The juice and zest of 1 lime

¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper

3 tablespoons of vegetable oil

A handful of fresh coriander, chopped


Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and add the whole sweet potatoes. Cook for around 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender, and then drain. Leave the potatoes to cool. Meanwhile, mix the salt, lime zest and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Once well combined, set aside for the moment. By now the potatoes should be cool enough to handle. Cut them into 6 wedges per potato, as anything smaller will burn under the grill. Brush the wedges with vegetable oil and place under the grill. Grill the sweet potato wedges on both sides for around 5 minutes each, making sure that both sides have turned a delicious golden brown colour. Once the wedges are looking crispy, remove them from the grill. To serve, coat the wedges in the spice mixture, squeeze over the lime juice and scatter fresh coriander on top.
