If you’ve been on hosting duties in the garden for the past few weeks, this is the perfect recipe that you can whip up and wow your guests with your home-made talents! ⁣Although there’s nothing wrong with shop-bought dips and crisps every once in a while - it’s the thought that counts, and by making your own you know exactly what ingredients are going into it and can keep mindful of added salt and sugar for example. ⁣

I love the freshness of the lime, tomatoes and cucumber combined with the kick of the chilli flakes. It also works well as a topping for a salad with some chicken or beans.

Sweet potato crisps ingredients

⁣2 medium sweet potatoes⁣

2 tsp olive oil⁣

1 tsp paprika⁣

A pinch of black pepper⁣


⁣1. Preheat the oven to 200c and line two baking trays with parchment paper.⁣

2. Chop the ends off the sweet potatoes and thinly slice horizontally, creating thin rounds - I used a mandoline slicer but you can use a knife - just try to get them as thin as possible.⁣

3. Place the rounds into a bowl, add the olive oil, paprika/ pepper and mix through with your hands to coat. ⁣

4. Place the slices spread out onto a baking tray so they’re not overlapping, and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until crisp. Leave to cool and place in a bowl.⁣

Salsa Ingredients

⁣100g cherry tomatoes, chopped⁣

1 small red onion, diced⁣

¼ of cucumber, diced⁣

½ tsp of chilli flakes ⁣

1 small handful of fresh coriander (approx 5g, diced)⁣

1 spring onion, diced⁣

1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil⁣

Juice of ½ a lime⁣

A pinch of salt & pepper⁣


1️. Place ½ of the tomatoes in a blender/ food processor until broken down a little more, (but not completely smooth) to provide some liquid.⁣

2️. Add the remaining ingredients to a bowl and mix through to combine, add the tomatoes from the blender and mix through again. ⁣

3️. Serve with sweet potato crisps, or veg of your choice and enjoy!
