Sweet Potato Wedges

Wedges might seem like an unhealthy side dish to to go for, however this recipe uses sweet potatoes that are baked and contain minimal fat! Sweet potatoes are a great source of antioxidants such as beta-carotene, fibre, vitamins A, C, B6, and other minerals. Delicious as a side dish, especially with my beetroot sliders and goats cheese dip!
