Equipment

  • Stainless Steel Baking Trays

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary 1 tbsp of fresh rosemary
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • ½ tsp salt omit for babies under 12 months

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut into ½ inch sticks and place them in a large bowl. Add olive oil, chopped garlic, rosemary, salt and any other seasonings you want and mix it all up so that each potato is coated.
  • Place on a baking tray and make sure the potatoes are all placed in a single layer (use of parchment paper at your discretion).
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, then flip them and bake for another 10 minutes until you are satisfied with their crispiness.
  • For instructions on how to prepare baked sweet potatoes for babies and toddlers see notes below.

Notes

  • Do not wash them before peeling as they will become mushy
  • You can make them cubed instead of fries, just bake them for 25 min instead of 30 min
  • Puree. You can use this same recipe but omit the garlic and rosemary so you would just puree the sweet potato and olive oil. You can also steam them if you prefer, for about 20 min in a steamer pot and then add olive oil to the blender.
  • Baby-led weaning. If you are ready for toppings and seasonings you can serve this recipe (omit the salt) to your baby, just cut the sweet potatoes in 1 inch thickness so that it is a large spear for them to easily hold. They would be baked for about the same amount of time but they won't get that crispy (which you don't want because you want them to be nice and soft).
  • 9 months+ or whenever ready for pincer grasp. Follow the recipe as above (minus the salt) and then cut each potato into small pieces the size of baby's pinky fingernail.
  • Toddlers. You can use the same recipe as for adults. Based on their age or capabilities you can keep cutting it into little pieces or offering it as crispy fries if you feel that they are ready.
