Getting kids off hot chips that are salty and oily can be hard as the addiction is REAL!
slowly introduce homemade chips then move away from oils and salts. Here is the recipes for oils free homemade chippies that use sweet potato and kumara as a white potato alternative.
HOW TO MAKE:
Slice the potato’s to the shape your child likes. I left the skins on and did wedges. You may want to skin them and make them look like French fries 🍟
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Pre heat the oven to 175-200 degrees. Place the cut potato’s into a steamer for 5-10 minutes or until soft but not falling apart. Place the steamed potato’s into the lines tray. Season to taste or leave plain. I used Italian herbs 🌿 and lemon juice 🍋
You could use paprika and cumin and orange or dill and lemon or thyme and lemon or turmeric and orange or cinnamon and orange 🍊
Place a tray of plain water in the bottom of the oven. This is to create steam so the potato’s don’t dry out. Place the seasoned chippies in the tray into the oven.
The chippies will take 25-45 minutes depending on your oven and how much they were steamed. Half way through toss them and remove the baking paper to allow them to crisp slightly. You could add more lemon or orange juice if required.
Once they are golden but not burnt bring them out of the oven.
Serve with greens to help digestion and if you like to my raw tomato sauce from the recipe book. Or purred steamed carrots, touch of ginger and coriander with a little lime juice to make a dip for the chippies 🍠🥔
Slowly slowly the kids will come around to these homemade oil free dry roasted chippies. Once they do then move them to kumara, then sweet potato
