Roasted sweet potato chips

Common on now, we all know it that despite our best efforts to eat healthy, a little bit of cheating is needed to keep our spirits up. And when it comes to cheating to replace healthy food, nothing better than potato chips. So, here is a slightly better version of chips that will allow you to relish on junk food while sticking to healthy food habits.

  2. Dress the sweet potatoes in olive oil, using your hands to ensure proper application to all the sweet potatoes.
  3. Lay out the potatoes in a baking tray and bake for 30 – 40 minutes at 200⁰C

Try a tip

Try serving it with grated cheese instead of mayonnaise. Just sprinkle a handful of freshly grated cheese before serving but after the potatoes are out of the oven. The warm potatoes will slightly melt the cheese naturally, giving a lovely creamy taste to the recipe. A great variation if you are a big fan of cheese.
