Tips

  • Sweet potato is higher in fibre than regular potato and has a lovely sweet flavour. However, regular potato can be used instead in this recipe if you prefer.
  • The skin on sweet potatoes is a good source of fibre and nutrients, and can help keep the wedges together. If you prefer however, you can remove the skins before baking.
  • Experiment with different herbs or spices to change the flavour of the wedges. For example, you could use oregano instead of paprika for a more Mediterranean flavour.
