Recipe:

Baked Sweet Potato Chips + Sugar Free Tomato Sauce 

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sweet potato cut to resemble chips
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch good quality salt and pepper

For the Tomato Sauce:

  • 400g organic crushed tomatoes (with no added sugar or preservatives)*
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves 
  • Pinch good quality salt and pepper 

Method:

  1. Pre heat fan-forced oven to 200°C.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl toss sweet potato with oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer to a baking tray.
  4. Bake in oven for 30 – 35 minutes, turning at half way, or until cooked through and golden.
  5. Meanwhile make tomato sauce. Puree tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, basil, salt and pepper in a blender/ food processor or hand mix with attachment until smooth. (I use my Vitamix).
  6. Pour mixture into a medium saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes. Allow to cool. 
  7. Serve chips hot with tomato sauce for dipping. Store extra tomato sauce in an air-tight container in refrigerator. 

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve as a savoury snack or as a side dish with cooked fish or chicken.
  • This recipe is also a great side to our Paleo Popcorn Chicken recipe. 

Make It Personal:

  • Toss sweet potato chips with 1 tablespoon dried herbs such as rosemary or oregano before baking. 

Recipe Tips:

  • To prevent your chips from going soggy I recommend pre-heating your oven tray prior to transferring chips into for baking.
