Sweet Potato Slices
- 4 fairly large & thick sweet potatoes
- dried thyme
- dried rosemary
- pepper (ground)
Place an oven tray in the oven and heat the oven to 180°C
Keeping the skin on, slice the sweet potatoes width ways (forming small circles), making each slice about ½ -1 cm thick (the thicker they are, the longer it will take to become crispy)
Take out the tray, spray very lightly with some olive oil, sprinkle the herbs and pepper on the tray, and place the slices on it
Sprinkle the herbs and pepper on top of the slices, enough to almost cover them
Place back in the oven
Turn the pieces over after 15 minutes (there shouldn’t be any need to add more oil)
Remove from the oven once slightly browned or cooked through
If you want them crispier, leave them in for a bit longer
Tip Sweet potato is a lower GI food than other potatoes, and so is a good choice if you want more sustained energy and a more gradual effect on your blood sugar levels. The rosemary and thyme add a salty flavour to this meal, so taste it before you add any more salt – you’ll find it’s not really necessary.
Serve as the carbohydrate part of your main course.
