We’re now 3 days into 2019. I’m sure a lot of you have started the year with long lists of resolutions. And I’m sure some of those resolutions were to get back on track with healthy eating and repair the damage done by overeating during Christmas season. If you happen to be looking for a healthy snack, an alternative to store-bought potato crisps, then making vegetable crisps at home can be a great idea. They’re much, much healthier, super easy to make, and you can use many different vegetables instead of regular, boring potatoes. Here’s a recipe for home-made, healthy, oven-baked sweet potato crisps. So, so delicious and crispy! A great idea for a party snack too – just increase the ingredients accordingly.
For 1 serving – a small bowl – you’ll need:
- 1 medium sweet potato
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- seasoning: salt, pepper, paprika, herbs of your choice
Preheat the oven to 130ºC.
Peel and finely slice the potato – the thinner the slices, the better. Place them in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and season generously. With your hands, stir the contents of the bowl so that the oil and seasoning are evenly distributed.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the potato slices on the tray, trying to avoid overlapping as much as possible.
Bake for 1.5-2 hours – until dry and crispy (the time needed will depend on your oven as well as the thickness of your slices). Every 30 minutes, take the tray out of the oven and stir the crisps, turning them over.
