Who does not enjoy chips?  So here is a much healthier version – sweet potato baked chips which you can enjoy guilt free. My daughter, Ria, tried these out and loved them. She encouraged me to make them and they were easy, flavorful and nutritious.   These awesome chips require only olive oil, sea salt and pepper.  

What you need:

2 sweet potatoes (Shakarkandi in Hindi)

2 tsp olive oil

sea salt and pepper – to taste

Any other seasoning you like

How to make:

  1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Rinse and dry the sweet potatoes.  Cut them as thin and evenly as possible.  Know that chips that are too thick in parts won’t crisp up all the way. Still delicious, just not “chip” crispiness.
  3. Toss the slices in olive oil and add salt and pepper.  Spread evenly on a baking tray in a single layer.  Place the baking tray in the middle rack in the oven.

4.  Remove once crisp and golden brown(about 35 mins).  But each oven varies so you will have to keep an eye on them.   Some may feel a little tender in the middle but take them out and let them rest for 10 minutes or so to crisp up before sampling. Serve immediately.
