Sweet potato chips make a healthy, high-fibre alternative to traditional chips, but taste just as good (if not better!)

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

  • 1 tbsp harissa paste
  • soured cream and chives, to serve


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a large bowl combine the wedges with the harissa. Transfer to a baking tray and cook for 40-45 mins until the potatoes are tender and crispy at the edges. Serve with soured cream mixed with snipped chives.

Enjoyed these both as a low fat evening snack dipped in yoghurt & harissa, then the next day chopped-up and served cold in my packed lunch of puy pentils, tomatoes, celery and sliced radishes, tossed in more of the yoghurt & harissa mix.

I made these last night. They were delicious. I added a bit of olive oil and some dried chilli, which gave these even more of a kick. Served with soured cream. So easy and healthy. Will definitely be making again.

I agree w/ previous comments that more harissa is needed to give this some kick (or not, if one wants to make it kids-friendly). It also helps to add a few splashes of olive oil to the paste to make spreading it over the potatoes easier. Really liked the sour cream + chives dip alongside, though.

Made these the other day, over cooked them a little but still tasted lovely. I would maybe put a little more Harissa paste on as I didn't think they quite had that kick from the chilli. Great alternative to chips though; had this with the cajun chicken burger.

Simple and tasty. Perhaps a little oil would make the skins a little better but they were excellent anyway. Had with http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/527630/piri-piri-pork-with-mustard-coleslaw

Made these today and they went down a treat with the entire family, ranging from the youngest at 4 years and the oldest at 74. I added in some extra virgin olive oil and they roasted really well. Excellent, quick and easy alternative to chips, will definitely be cooking again and would recommend to anyone.
