It’s essential to have some healthy treats in the cupboard when eating raw and when eliminating sugar I often feel like I need something sweet to settle an appetite. I created these unbelievably moreish bites for occasions like this when you need something to nibble on, guilt free. Or alternatively create them for a pre dinner party treat. Your friends will love them! You’ll need a large frying pan for these.
You can also follow the same method with parsnips, butternut squash or aubergine.
- Two medium sweet potatoes
- Coconut oil
- Peel the potatoes, and slice very thinly (around 0.5cm thin)
- Melt two heaped tablespoons of the oil in your pan on high, add the slices to cover one layer of the pan, try not to double up the potatoes as you want them all to touch the base of the pan. (You may need to do a second batch.) If adding seasoning, add this now to cover a layer.
- Once the potatoes start to go soft, flip them over to fry the other side. The corners of the circles should start to curl too. I like mine to go slightly brown on one side, so you can leave them until they start to frazzle slightly for a couple of minutes.
- Once they start to crisp up and have cooked on both sides, take them out of the pan and place on some tissue paper to soak up some of the oil. Then place them on a tray and heat in the oven on low (around 100 degrees) for about 15 minutes. This will dry them out so they have a good crunch!
