This recipe is a healthier alternative to deep-fried chips or fries. They are delicious with all the nutritional benefits sweet potatoes have to offer. Tossing them with lemon juice and a drizzle of organic olive oil that packs a gentle kick of chilli works beautifully for members of the root family. But if you want to treat yourself to a guilty pleasure – a creamy yet tangy mayo dipping sauce is the perfect accompaniment to your healthy sweet potato chips.

Preparation time 30 minutes

Cooking time 25-30 minutes

Serves 2

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Azada Olive Oil & Crushed Chilli 
  • ½ the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon
  • Togarashi
  • Freshly ground sea salt and black pepper for seasoning 
Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Azada Olive Oil & Crushed Garlic
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce or a gluten-free equivalent
Sweet Potato Chips Preparation:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Fully line a rectangular oven tray with greaseproof paper.
  3. Preparing the sweet potato. Place the slices of sweet potato in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the slices with Azada’s Olive Oil & Crushed Chilli, add the lemon juice and season with sea salt and black pepper. Mix with a wooden spoon to ensure each slice is coated evenly. Lay out the slices (overlap a little) on the oven-proof tray. Some sweet potato chips may shrink while cooking so overlapping is not an issue.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes before turning over (carefully) and cooking for a further 10-15 minutes. Lay the sweet potato chips out on a cooling rack making sure to immediately season with the Togarashi seasoning and set aside until ready to eat.
Dipping Sauce Preparation:
  1. Preparing the sauce. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, Azada’s Olive Oil & Crushed Garlic, soy sauce and a little seasoning of black pepper. Gently whisk until smooth and set aside until ready to serve.
  • If you fancy crispy baked sweet potato chips soak the sweet potatoes in cold water. This helps to draw out the excess starch, which helps them cook better and give you chips that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside without burning.
