Sweet Potato Baked Crisps with Thyme and Orange Oil !

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Almost another half year has gone by in the blink of an eye !  No matter whether you are a Home Stay Mum or a Busy Working Woman, we all want to fit so much in one day these days! The myth is wrong that if you are a home stay person you are just twiddling your thumbs...Certainly not me, I am a home maker but busy as bumble bee :) I hope there are many with me who think the same that 24 hours is not enough in a day!

Always with a positive mind, I keep myself very busy...regular posting recipes on my blog, updating my social media pages quite often...I like to keep the food conversation flowing on JCO's Facebook Page, where we all foodies talk about nothing but food :D !! This way we get to know each other, we all share our tips and recipes..great fun !!

Last week I asked on JCO's Facebook page - How often do you use spices in your cooking ?
Most of them answered that they would love to use not only spices but fresh herbs in each and every meal they cook in a day..I think most of us wants to use these healthy and beneficial ingredients in our cooking, and that's a very positive path we all are taking..

And on this positive and cheerful note I am going to share today Sweet Potato Baked Crisps with Thyme and Orange oil..yes in UK we call them Crisps :))
Colourful, wonderfully crisp, absolutely delicious and scrummy...Home made sweet potato crisps are not only healthy but as good as out of the packet but ONLY cheaper. Of course you've got bragging rights too ;) 
Whether you are snacking, sharing on a picnic or hosting a party, add a little class with these sumptuous and sophisticated Sweet Potato Crisps !!!!!

You will need :-

  • 2 medium sweet potato washed and lightly scrubbed
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 -3 tsp thyme ( I used fresh )
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Pinch red chilli powder ( optional )

Method :-
Pre heat oven to gas mark 5-6 or 200C.
Place olive oil, Orange zest and half of the thyme in one bowl and red chilli powder if using.
Using a mandolin, slice the sweet potatoes into wafer thin slices. ( I used my food processor )
Spread out on paper towel to remove excess moisture.
Brush three to four baking sheets with orange oil.
Arrange thinly cut slices in a single layer on a baking tray and brush tops with the orange oil.
Sprinkle with thyme, sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Bake for 20 minutes on a middle shelf, turning half way through. Look out for these signs: the edges of the crisps should curl up and the centre should be golden brown. Keep an eye on them as they can get burnt easily.
Remove from the oven and let it stay 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet, then remove carefully and let cool on a wire rack. 
They will go more crispier when they are cool.
Best enjoyed on the same day !
