Serves: 4

Sweet potato chips

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, sliced lengthwise (1/8-inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 tablespoons mild paprika
  1. Preheat oven to 185°C / 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix sliced sweet potatoes, oliv oil, paprika, a few pinches of sea salt and pepper until all potatoes are evenly coated.
  3. Spread the potatoes in a single layer and bake for 15 minutes, then flip over and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from baking sheet and transfer to a new baking sheet/large platter or plate. Let potatoes cool in a single layer. Notes: It’s important that the potatoes cool in a single layer and not placed on top of one another – that will prevent from getting soggy and maintain the crispiness.
