No matter how healthy you’re trying to eat, there’s always going to be a few guilty pleasures needed. And the good thing is: if you make them yourself, there’s no reason to feel guilty at all! Potato chips are one of those snacks that are everywhere: at birthday parties, on Friday afternoon drinks, on the go, everywhere! They come in an endless list of different flavors. The good thing about this home-made chips recipe with sweet potato is that you can give them any type of flavor you want. Whether you’re craving paprika, curry or garlic, it’s all up to you. Sweet potato, or bataat as we call them in Dutch, is high in fibers and are chock-full with beta-carotene, that your body will turn into vitamin A. Next to that, they’re incredibly tasty.
- 1 large sweet potato (either peeled or not)
- herbs of choice: paprika powder, curry, garlic powder, onion powder
Pre-heat the oven to 200’C. The only tricky thing about the recipe is the slicing. It’s easiest if you have a mandolin. Either wash the skin, or take off the skin and slice the sweet potato into thin or slighty thicker slices (adjust your oven to 180’C and have a longer time in the oven if you have thick slices). You can choose to keep them in the fridge for about an hour to get some of the moist out, or simply use them right away. Put them, preferably evenly divided so none covers the other, onto an oven rack. Create a mixture of the herbs and spices you love, drizzle them with a little bit of olive oil and lightly cover the chips. Also add some Himalaya salt on top. Put them in the oven for about 15 min, turning them around halfway. They should be crispy. If not, leave them in the oven a bit longer, until crispy to your liking!
