Sweet Potato Chips

IMG_4579a1 kg of Sweet Potato
1 1/2 teaspoons of Sumac
4-5 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Preparation time:    55 minutes
Serves:     4 (as a side dish)

Preheat the oven at 200° for approximately 10-15 minutes.  Peel and cut the Sweet Potato into 7cm (lengthways) and place in a bowl.  Sprinkle with Sumac, drizzle the olive oil, add the salt and pepper.  Using your hands mix the ingredients well.

IMG_4570aLine a large baking tray with baking paper, add the Sweet Potatoes and spread evenly around the tray.  Place the tray in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes.  Do check on the potatoes whilst they are in the oven to ensure that they are browning evenly.  Once cooked, serve them as an accompaniment to grilled meat.  They also make a great snack whilst watching your favourite  TV show or when you have a few guests over for drinks.   I usually make a large batch and serve them with Aioli when I have guests.

Cook’s Tips

If you do not like a particular spice, try using another that you enjoy.  I have also used Cumin and Cajun spice with the Sweet Potato and found that they worked well, especially when you serve the potato with the Aioli.  You may also like to cut the potato a little thicker, remember to leave them in the oven a little longer.

Enjoy!

  1. I love sweet potato fries. I have never heard of sumac spice before. Can you describe the taste of it? I know that is probably difficult. I was just curious. The cumin and Cajun spice sound good, too.
