Sweet Potato Chips recipe

Sweet potato is a healthy alternative to normal potato in that in contains far more fibre. Baking them also keeps them healthy, as you only use a little oil. Serve them with any spicy dish or with a curry - or with whatever you fancy!


  • 6 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Peel the sweet potatoes then cut into thin chips.

  2. Toss the chips in the oil, then season with the salt and the cayenne pepper.

  3. Spread onto a well greased baking tray in a single layer, then cook for 30 minutes in a 200C oven. Turn the heat up to 220C, then cook for another 10-20 minutes depending on how thick you cut the chips.

For sweet potato chips that you can serve for dessert (yes, really!), omit the salt and cayenne pepper and sprinkle the chips with cinnamon instead. This recipe serves 3-4.
