Sweet Potato Chips!
They are the perfect antidote to a cold day. They’re warm and nourishing and are so good for you, even though they taste like a treat!
They make your skin glow.
Brightly coloured vegetables and fruits can help brighten your skin. Sweet potatoes contain a combination of skin brightening vitamin A and vitamin C. These antioxidants work together to neutralise free radicals.
And they’re good for you.
Sweet Potatoes are a healthy source of iron, potassium, copper, manganese and folate. They’re a complex carbohydrate which means they break down slowly during digestion and will not spike blood sugar levels. This means that you won’t be feeling tired or hungry again an hour after you eat them. They provide a slow and steady release of energy keeping you satiated and energised.
Try them for yourself!
Ingredients (serves two)
2 sweet potatoes
1 Tablespoon of melted coconut oil
2 teaspoons arrowroot starch (this is my secret to making them crispy!)
Sea salt and oregano to taste
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (390 degrees Fahrenheit).
Peel the sweet potatoes then chop them into uniform size chips.
Put all the chips into a bowl and mix through the melted coconut oil, arrowroot, salt and oregano.
On a tray lined with baking paper, spread them out in a single layer.
Bake for 25 minutes or until crispy on one side, then turn them over.
Cook for another 15-20 minutes until they are slightly browned on the edges.
These are so freaking yummy that I’ve been cooking them at least once a week. Hope you enjoy!
