They tend to burn if you increase the oven temperature and I'm guessing that's because of soya sauce. They were ok but nothing special.

I parboiled the chips for 10 minutes with a clove of garlic and chopped green chilli and spring onion bulbs in. Put chips in oven with oil like you would cook roast potatoes on 200 degrees turning once half way through cooking. Served with Thai green curry. Delicious. Mine were crispy on outside but soft on inside. Will be making again.

This recipe makes for delicious sweet potato wedges, I also made the oven hotter at gas mark 7 and after 30 minutes they were crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. Yum!

Good but if you want them crisp you need to par boil the chips for 5 mins and preheat the oil in the oven. Make sure there is plenty of oil in there and cook in a hot oven (220 degrees) for at least 35 mins. They will go crispy, just be patient!

Yummy. I sprinkled on some nutmeg which was delicious, so I would recommend that part of the recipe

Sorry, should have mentioned that I don't use the nutmeg, but rather drizzle with a little honey half way through baking...careful not to use too much.

A firm favourite in our house. So simple to make and packed full of flavour. This is one that we use time and time again.

YOU CANNOT BOIL POTATOES FIRST! THEY'LL BE EVEN MORE SOGGY! THE OVEN TEMPERATURE ON THIS RECIPE IS WRONG, 220 IS BETTER, THEY'LL BE LESS SOGGY.

There were really yummy, not crispy but I didn't care! Also- I used soy sauce that was out of date (whoops) and they still tasted good.

Try shaking a few chilli flakes on instead of nutmeg, and longer or hotter to crisp them a bit

I didn't really find them the right texture when they came out of the oven! I think it's better to par boil potatoes/sweet potatoes before putting them in the oven to roast. Flavours were wonderful though.
