Sweet Potatoes

Canola Cooking Oil Spray

Salt {optional}


1. Wash the sweet potatoes and peel off the skin, if desired {see tip above}

2. Slice the potatoes into equal sized slices. I like to run them through my food processer set on the slicing mode - though a mandoline would also work, as well as cutting them by hand.

3. Lay a piece of parchment paper on top of the removable microwave turntable plate. I like to give the parchment paper edges a little trim so it does not jumble up when the plate spins.

4. Lay the sweet potato slices on the parchment paper, spray them lightly with the cooking spray, and sprinkle them with salt, if desired. 

5. Microwave for 4 - 5 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave and the thickness of the slices. I like to run it straight for 4 minutes then give them a check. The edges will start to curl and the sweet potato will turn a significantly darker color. They do burn quickly - so if they need that extra minute - keep an eye on them. 

6. Once done let cool for at least 30 seconds - this will give them that awesome crispiness.
