Sweet potato chips are a cinch to whip up and make a delicious snack. They're especially a smart alternative to commercial brand potato chips (or even store-bought sweet potato chips). Don't they look bright and beautiful?
Look at any list of "top ten foods you should include in your diet" and sweet potatoes will be on it. They're a nutritional powerhouse packing more than 250% of your daily value of Vitamin A in a single serving, mainly in the form of Beta-Carotene. They also serve as a source of complex carbohydrate, Vitamin C, Potassium, Iron, Manganese and Copper. Not to mention they're delicious too!
2 Sweet Potatoes
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt, to taste
Take 2 sweet potatoes, wash the outer skin and let dry (do not peel... the skin is full of nutrients!). Slice thin (1/8 inch thick)
Toss in a bowl w/ 1 tbsp olive oil, sprinkle with salt to taste.
Spread thinly on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tbsp additional olive oil.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 25-30 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Be sure to take them out and flip them halfway for a more even bake.
When they're done, let them cool slightly, sprinkle with cinnamon (optional) and enjoy!!
