How to cook crispy baked sweet potatoes: tips and tricks

Potato side dishes are the most versatile of all, and are ideal to combine with all types of dishes, from fish-based dishes to meat dishes, including vegetarian and vegan dishes. But do you want to know all the tricks for crunchy and perfect potatoes ? Here they are:

First of all, for a perfect yield, the ideal would be to soak the potatoes in cold water before cooking them in the oven, so as to make them lose the excess starch.

Alternatively, you can also blanch them in water for 5 minutes to soften them inside, so it will be easier to form a crust on the outside.

Another important thing is the temperature of the oven : remember to warm it up first!

Even the taste wants its part! In addition to rosemary, oil, salt and pepper, you can crush some garlic cloves and arrange them on the pan to flavor the vegetables!

Finally, the last piece of advice we give you is the arrangement of the potatoes: try not to overlap them one on top of the other to have uniform cooking, and also turn them halfway through cooking to make them crispy on both sides.
