Sweet potato chips

More vegetarian. Why not cooking some Sweet Potato Chips. Everyone likes chips. Today, instead of cooking regular potato chips I will use sweet potatoes, something different and delicious.


1 sweet potato
Some extra virgin olive oil
Some salt to taste

We do not really need many ingredients for this recipe. Just sweet potatoes, oil and some salt. We will use extra virgin olive oil. I do not think I have to tell you why.
Sweet potatoes are very common in the United States. In Spain are not used much, to tell the truth. And it is a pity, because sweet potatoes are very good vegetables.
Our recipe is very easy. We will peel the sweet potatoes first and then, using a mandoline, we will make thin slices. Then we will heat some extra virgin olive oil in a pan. The next thing is frying the potatoes in several batches. Make sure they are well done and add some salt to taste. Leave the chips on kitchen paper towel to get rid of the oil they might have. You can serve them with your favourite dishes, burgers, chicken… Now is up to you. Enjoy!

Thanks for the post, this looks like an easy recipe to make.

I do mine in the oven for a few less calories:

Sweet Potato Chips

2 6 oz. sweet potatoes, peeled, and sliced thinly (6 to 8)
1 tsp olive oil cooking spray
Herb mix
Salt to taste
Aluminum foil

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray with olive oil. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes (a mandolin makes this job a breeze). Place slices on the foil, spray slices again with the cooking spray, and sprinkle with herb seasoning and salt. Put baking sheets in the oven, bake for 20 minutes, turn over, reduce oven to 300 degrees, and continue to bake until slices are crisp, but not burned, approximately 15 to 20 more minutes. Cool, remove from baking sheet, and enjoy.

Yield: 30 slicesSweet Potato Chips

Note: A small sweet potato, 6 to 8 oz. will fill one baking sheet.
