Sweet potato is one of our must have vegetables and ingredients as part of our food essentials. The great thing about sweet potato is that they contain large amounts of vitamin A in the form of antioxidant beta-carotene and are quite high in fibre. You can have them in a potato mash with your fish, or steamed with your salad and as chunky chips when you’re feeling naughty or simply wanting to mix it up. The beauty of sweet potatoes is the variety of ways you can cook them.

Baking your sweet potato chips will take you just over 30 minutes but your time looking after them is probably about 10-15 minutes maximum. Below is how we prepare and cook our sweet potato chips to make them as crunchy and nutritious as possible.

Get those crunchy chips tasty and crunchy

What you'll need:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes 🍠 (the bigger the better if you like your chips long and crunchy).
  • Organic extra virgin olive oil.
  • Sea salt & freshly ground pepper.
  • Oven and baking tray.

What to do:

  • Rinse the sweet potatoes under clear running water. We tend to keep the skin to add that extra texture and fibre, however, you can peel them if preferred.
  • Cut each sweet potato in half lengthways and then unto chips.
  • Place them in a large bowl of cold water and let them soak for about 30 minutes. This process will help the chips get crunchier.
  • In the meantime, prepare a ramequin or small bowl with olive oil, a little bit of sea salt and black pepper in it and mix together.
  • Preheat your oven to 200ºC and have your baking tray ready.
  • After 30 minutes, place the sweet potatoes on a tea towel or kitchen towel to dry them.
  • Some use a brush, we just use our fingers and coat the chips in the oil.
  • Place each sweet potato chip on the baking tray.
  • Place in the oven and cook for about 15 mins, open the oven and turn the chips around to make sure they cook properly. Cook for another 15 minutes.
  • Ta-dah!

Notes:

  • You can add mixed herbs on them when serving.
  • Mix some mayonnaise and a little bit of paprika if you’re looking for a tasty dipping sauce.

Enjoy!
