Purple Sweet Potato Dessert Fries (Vegan + GF)

As I’ve said before, sweet potatoes are used in a lot of desserts in Japan, and these purple sweet potato dessert fries were inspired by the Japanese sweet potato snack imogashi – thin and crispy sticks of deliciousness coated in clumps of white sugar.

This version here is, of course, infinitely healthier: instead of thin and crispy sticks of sweet potato deliciousness coated in clumps of white sugar, I made thin and crispy sticks of purple sweet potato deliciousness naturally sweetened with date syrup.

You can use maple syrup instead, but I opted for date syrup because I think it really resembles kuromitsu (a Japanese sugar syrup that’s similar to molasses but milder and thinner). 

If you live in the UK, Waitrose have recently started selling purple sweet potatoes so you’ll be able to get hold of them easily!

All you need to do is peel them, chop them up, coat in oil, salt and date syrup, bake them and devour. Simple!
