I made a new recipe this week that involves potatoes — sweet potatoes that is!
I’m trying to find foods to eat that are healthier and not take away my favorite flavors. That is when I discovered Sweet Potato Chips — homemade of course!
These little guys are absolutely scrumptious. Be careful though, or you might wind up burning them. It does not take long at all for them to cook in the fryer. Next time, I am going to try and bake them in the oven as french fries and see what happens.
Here is the recipe! 🙂
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- oil for frying
- Peel your sweet potatoes and then slice them super thin using a mandolin.
- Heat your oil and then fry in batches until they are crisp.
- Remove from oil with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel and then sprinkle with salt while they are still hot.
- Remove to a plate and allow to cool for a few minutes to crisp up a little more. Then enjoy!
Sweet potatoes contain vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, fiber, B vitamins, potassium and even iron. In fact, Whole Foods considers sweet potatoes one of the healthiest vegetables we eat. A medium sized sweet potato contains more than your daily requirement of vitamin A, nearly a third the vitamin C you need, almost 15 percent of your daily dietary fiber intake and 10 percent of the necessary potassium.
