Oven baked sweet potato chips.


Sweet potato chips

Sweet potato chips

I have been posting a large number of sweet baking recipe recently so I had planned to redress this a little with a savoury recipe or two. This is a completely unplanned post however as I happened to mention that I was having sweet potato chips for tea and was asked via Twitter for this low GI recipe. Sorry there is only one photo but this is a slightly “on the hoof” post.

Here we go then. Unless you want complaints from the teens buy the sweet potatoes with orange flesh as these look better on the plate. I failed in my parenting duties (again) by getting the white ones.


1 large sweet potato per person. (orange fleshed ones look and taste best according to the teens in this house)




How to

  • Pre heat the oven to 220c
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into wedges the size of chip shop chips.
  • Drizzle a little oil onto the baking tray, sprinkle the oil with salt and paprika.
  • Tip over the sweet potato wedges and toss in the oil and paprika.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes turn the chips so that they brown evenly.

Serve as an alternative to chips with any meal. The meal we had was soy glazed chicken, sweet potato chips and steamed kale.

Extra Veg Badge-003I have added this to the Extra veg blog hop, this is hosted alternatively by Helen at Fuss Free Flavours (this month’s host) and Michelle at Utterly Scrummy. Swerve the spuds and slip in some sweet potatoes instead.
