Sweet potato – possibly the best naturally sourced ingredient ever!
I’m not going to lie, I love a good potato. My favorite being the sweet potato of course. Everything from the color, taste, and texture, this little pocket rocket ingredient has it all. Most people love potato but worry endlessly about the carbohydrates. Good news my friends – we need a balanced amount of carbs to survive! Sure, we get some from our other vegetables and foods we consume. However, it is important to make sure we have enough to function. This is even more important for those who are very active or hit the gym.
The sweet potato rounds are great to add into a dish as a side, as an entrée, or even by themselves for snacking.
To make this recipe, you will need 2 ingredients and 25 minutes. You will also need a baking tray, a bowl, and a mixing spoon.
This one is really simple, we only use 2 ingredients – sweet potato and sesame oil. Both ingredients are each impressive in their nutritional value, offering us a good source of complex carbohydrates, potassium, manganese, vitamin E, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, and vitamin A.
As you will see below, I have outlined that the sweet potato rounds need to be baked. This achieves a crisp result that most people enjoy from their potato. However, there are actually 2 ways of doing it. The second way you could prepare your sweet potato would be to boil them, which is actually the healthier way. It holds its nutrition better, but more importantly, helps to avoid blood sugar spikes after being consumed. The choice is completely up to you, so feel free to experiment
Sweet potato rounds are the perfect side to any dish because they are:
To store any left over potato rounds, simply place them in an airtight container and pop them into the fridge for up to 48 hours. Remember to heat them thoroughly before consuming.
And there we have it – the sweet potato rounds recipe. I hope you like this recipe as much as I do. Be sure to head over and see our dip recipe, Delicious Dijon Mustard Dip, to complete this recipe.
