Tapas at Kat’s | Chilli Coconut Sweet Potato Fries

My favourite type of meal to eat (especially on holiday) is tapas. Being someone who has a handful of meals they like the look of when faced with their favourite type of book (a menu), a few dishes of different types of food is definitely the way forward. Recently I have enjoyed making tapas for dinner- makes seven o’clock on a weekday in England far more exotic. Tapas, for me, must include typical side dishes and I recently started making my own coconut, chilli and honey sweet potato fries as a healthy alternative to any potato sort of dish you might have at a restaurant.


Ingredients | For two pretending to holiday in the UK

  • 2 big sweet potatoes
  • A few pinches of pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp chilli flakes


  1. Boil the kettle with enough water to fill a large pan. Meanwhile slice each potato lengthwise and then cut them into thin, long fries (mine aren’t so large in the picture but medium-large potatoes make the best thin and long fries!)
  2. Place the fries in the pan, sprinkle the salt over them to evenly cover. Fill the pan with water and boil for 8-10 minutes- or until they’re slightly softened
  3. Put the coconut oil on a baking tray and heat it in the oven on gas mark six until the oil has melted. Move the tray so that the oil evenly coats it
  4. Once the potatoes are boiled, drain them and place on the tray, making sure none are touching
  5. Evenly coat the fries with the honey, chilli flakes and a couple of pinches of salt before turning them to make sure they all are coated with flavour
  6. Cook for 20-30 minutes, turning them halfway through
  7. Serve!

I like to eat these with my stuffed peppers, sweet chilli sausages and a big salad. Depending on what coconut oil you get, these will vary in coconut-strength and mine gives it quite a mild flavour which makes it yum for me!
