Sweet Potato Chips

Ah, the joys of sweet potatoes!

Let me share some facts with you:

Sweet potatoes are high in Beta Carotene and vitamins E and C.  They are a good source of fiber when eaten with the skin on.  They are an excellent source of copper, manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin B-6.

Sweet potatoes are a superfood and they taste great!  They go with almost anything; poultry, pork, beef, lamb or seafood.  They can also be substituted in virtually any recipe that calls for apples, squash or white potatoes.

Sweet Potatoes made the Clean 15, which means your potential exposure to toxins is lower than with other conventionally grown produce.

They are versatile and can be:

Baked
Steamed
Boiled
Microwaved
Fried
Juiced
Pureed
Eaten Raw (although some don’t recommend it because of it being hard to digest this way)

Sweet potatoes are awesome, and for those of us with a propensity to chips … they are a rather fine substitute for snacks that have a crunch!

Don’t these look nummy???

Sweet Potato Chips - Yum!

Sweet Potato Chips
1 servings

10 minutes prep
40-60 minutes start to finish

1 medium sweet potato
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp dried rosemary (optional)
1/2 tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 375.

Peel potatoes.  Slice thinly using either a sharp knife or a mandolin.  The thinner they are, the quicker the crisp up.

In a large bowl, mix with coconut oil, rosemary and salt.

Place single layer on a cookie sheet topped with parchment paper.  Bake in oven for 10 minutes, then flip.  Then watch carefully because they can scorch easily.  This can be 5 minutes or 15 … but take off chips that are starting to brown until all the chips are cooked.

Enjoy!
