Sweet Potatoes are a great source of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, C, and potassium.

They have a great taste, are starchy and can be enjoyed baked, roasted, grilled, steamed or fried.

Sweet potato also tastes good in the traditional curries. Click below for other recipes that have the sweet potato.

I also make baked sweet potato fries, sweet potato rosti (my son loves them), sweet potato cake, sweet potato roti during upwaas (fast). I will share their recipes soon.

I have seen restaurants offering baked sweet potato nachos under the vegan and gluten-free diet. Since the dish does not have any flour chips, cheese, and sour cream, it is low in calories too. I always like this kind of low-calorie dishes and so I made sweet potato nachos at home. It was a hit!! My husband loved them. My son can’t resist eating the crispy sweet potato chips.

Get the good tubular even size long sweet potato. Wash it and then peel and slice it very thin. If you have a slicer, it results in making slice quicker. Arrange the slices on a baking tray and brush it with the oil. Now bake them in the preheated oven at @190 C for 25-30 minutes flipping them in between. Once done remove and let it cool. It will become crispy once cooled. The crispy chips can be seasoned with salt, pepper, and paprika.

To make nachos, just arrange them on a serving plate. Put the kidney bean mixture over it and top with salsa and guacamole. Serve it immediately and impress your guests.

Health bhi aur taste bhi!
