Tuesdays are for bringing you a Mighty Good Recipe!

I’m not going to go on an organic kick.  It’s not my thing, nor will it be.  But after visiting T’afia’s farmers market a few weekends ago, I will give it up for locally grown organic items.  For this week’s Mighty Good Recipe, I decided to keep it very simple and use a few of the sweet potatoes I picked up while there.

2 large sweet potatoes
2 TBSP olive oil

Is that simple enough for you? If it’s not, you’re on the wrong blog.  Just slice the potatoes into very thin pieces. Toss in a fry pan with the oil.  Set on medium-low for about ten minutes.  This will soften and fully cook the potatoes.  Raise the heat to medium-high for about 5 minutes to crisp up.

That’s it!  No salt, no pepper…just the natural sweetness of the potato and maybe a little ketchup.

Looks delicious. My husband made something similar, but with fresh rutabaga – parboiled then sliced into thin pieces and pan fried. They were addictively tasty – slightly bitter with a little sweet from the carmelization during frying.

I’ve never cooked with rutabaga—I will now. This is a great suggestion!

I love sweet potato chips. To my taste it even tastes much, much better than regular potato chips. I love the combination of salty and slightly sweet taste of the chips. I also add some chili powder. It turns out so good. Savory, slightly sweet, salty, and hot. YUM! My favorite food.
