    Sweet potatoes have a creamy texture and a sweet-spicy flavour that makes them ideal for savoury…

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp fine cornmeal or polenta


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Cut 1.5kg (about 7) sweet potatoes into chunky chips and put in a large bowl. Drizzle with 3 tbsp vegetable oil, then sprinkle with 2 tsp sweet smoked paprika, 2 tbsp fine cornmeal or polenta and plenty of seasoning.

  2. Toss until well coated, then divide the chips between 2 large baking trays lined with baking parchment. Cook for 35 mins until golden and crunchy, tossing halfway through cooking.

Didn't like these at all - tasted dry and dusty. They may not crisp up just cooking them in oil but I'll be going back to this method. The polenta ruined them!

These were ok, they didn't go as crispy as I'd hoped.
