Crispy Smashed Sweet Potatoes
Crunchy, sticky, and sweet, these crispy smashed sweet potatoes deliver a lip smacking flavour. Ready in under 1 hour, enjoy these as a quick lunchtime snack or as a side to your Sunday roast.
Whether you’re using an air fryer or oven, these crispy smashed sweet potatoes are a quick and easy recipe for potatoes lovers. Paired with a yoghurt dipping sauce, these moreish chips will have you double dipping. The secret to the crisp outside and soft inside is smashing the sweet potatoes before popping in the oven. By smashing the potato slices you’re guaranteed crispy edges. Every. Time.
These are also the perfect snack for veganuary. Simply replace the animal derived products with vegan alternatives and you’re sorted. If you prefer your sweet potatoes a little more savoury, then pair with parmesan cheese (for the non-vegans) to add another level of flavour.
To cut through the sweet, honey layer we recommend trying out a garlic yoghurt dipping sauce. Either use garlic powder for a subtle hint of garlic in your sauce, or pop 1 finely chopped clove of garlic in the yoghurt for a punchy garlicky kick.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, you could pair these crisps with an Asian Aubergine, Peanut and Chili Dip, a Yoghurt Dip with Chilli Oil & Crispy Herbs, or this herbaceous Green Goddess Whipped Feta dip. Alternatively, give one of our other sauces or dips a try here.
