Smoked Sweet Potato Chips

By  |  0 Comments

I’m very partial to homemade sweet potato chips – they are very addictive!

This recipe that I’m about to share with you is courtesy of my brother Paul from Smoky Vines as he served these up to me when I went around for dinner last week – I just had to make them again!

Sweet potatoes have a much lower Glycaemic Index than normal potatoes so they don’t spike your blood sugar levels quite as much. They are also loaded with betacarotene (which turns into Vitamin A) and vitamin C – essential nutrients for the immune and respiratory systems.

Making your own chips also means that you can bake them in the oven as opposed to frying the living daylights out of them – a much healthier option and also prevents you from being exposed to all those extra rancid oils which only cause free radical damage in the body.

Ingredients

  •  2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 30ml of grapeseed oil
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper to season

Method

  • Cut the sweet potatoes into thin (chip-like) strips or square chunks.
  • Add the paprika, garlic and onion powder, salt & pepper to a bowl. Mix well.
  • Add the oil to the bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Add the sweet potato to the mixture and ensure that they are well covered.
  • Bake in the oven at 175°c for approx. 30-40 mins until golden and crisp. You will need check regularly to ensure that they don’t burn.

 

Hope you enjoy these as much as me!
