Don’t these look delicious? These are oven-baked sweet potato fries and they work well with my Slimming World plan. They make a great accompaniment to a main meal.

I’m on the Slimming World plan so need to eat plenty of vegetables which come under the ‘Free Food’ section. As I cook these in the oven using only low-calorie cooking spray (Fry Light in my case), they work on my diet.

Sweet potato friesHere’s how to do them.


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  • Peel several sweet potatoes – I used 4 for my lunch!
  • Chop the potatoes into chips. It doesn’t matter if they look ‘uniform’. Sweet potatoes are not a symmetrical shape anyway so knobbly bits are ok.
  • Lay the chips onto a baking tray in a single layer.
  • Spray over the chips with Fry Light.
  • Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until the fries are soft.
  • Enjoy!

On Slimming World these are classed as free food – food to eat freely. They are tasty and add a bit of sweetness to your meal.

I often have these – they also go well with the BBQ Pulled Pork recipe I shared recently. I hope you like them.
