Crispy Microwave Sweet Potato Chips! (fat-free)
I LOVE sweet potato chips, especially the crunch, but I have never been able to get the crunch I want in the oven without adding extra oil- in comes the microwave to save the day and BLOW MY MIND!
I had heard a couple of people mention that you could do sweet potato and other veggie chips in the microwave with no oil, a plate, and nothing else and still get them super crispy and I was a total skeptic.
I tried it out for the first time yesterday and they were PERFECTLY CRISPY on the first try! Amazing, so simple, and virtually no clean up!
optional spices: seasoning salt, dill, cinnamon, 0 calorie sweetener
a mandolin (unless you’re a master slicer, you need them very thin!)
a microwaveable plate
- slice your sweet potato on the thinnest setting with the mandolin
- lay sliced sweet potato in a single layer on a microwaveable plate
- top with seasonings of your choice
- microwave on high for 5 minutes, flip, season, microwave for 5 mins
For savory try spices/herbs of your choice and dip in sugar free ketchup
For sweet try cinnamon, brown sugar-Sugar Twin, salt, and dip in a fat-free cream cheese icing made with ff cream cheese, vanilla, and sweetener!
-Make sure the chips don’t overlap on the plate or they won’t crisp
-Keep an eye on them the second time in the microwave as everyone’s microwave runs at a different heat setting, once you can start to smell them they will be on the verge of burning so keep close watch!
-If after the second time in the microwave they aren’t crispy, keep cooking in 1 minute increments until they are
-Try to keep chips the same size to ensure equal cooking time
-Lay on a paper towel to cool and soak up any added moisture
-Let cool completely before storing in a Ziplock bag or plastic container to ensure they stay crisp and fresh!
The same as a sweet potato, because fat-free is AWESOME!
