Sweet potato fries are a healthier alternative to classic French fries, particularly since these are baked rather than fried. Here, your child will learn how easy it is to load up on flavour, not fat, and practise his knife skills by cutting the sweet potatoes by hand.
The fries are great by themselves, but if you're feeling adventurous, make a batch of basil-garlic aioli for dipping. This simple mayonnaise-based sauce comes together in a jiffy, and pairs perfectly with the sweet crunch of the fries. Classic aioli calls for raw egg yolks, but this version doesn’t so you can feel comfortable serving it to younger children.
