Crispy Sweet Potato Rounds

aip dairy free gluten free paleo recipes sides

All it takes is a sheet pan and a hot oven to turn sweet potato slices into crispy-creamy rounds of deliciousness. These couldn't be any easier to make, or love. Just slice your sweet potatoes (peeled or unpeeled), brush with oil, season and roast. This simple side will become a staple on your thyroid-healthy menu.

If you're inspired to jazz these up with some spices (in accordance with your current dietary plan), please do! When I posted these on Instagram and Facebook, readers shared their own customized versions, like a sprinkle of cinnamon, or a shortened cooking time in the air fryer. I've done these so many different ways depending on my mood, maybe with a dusting of seasoned salt, or chili powder and cumin, or even smoked paprika. 

At our family table, we usually enjoy them alongside Deluxe Burger Salad. The 'Special Sauce' that's included in that recipe is amazing for dipping these into, but truly, plain is delicious as well. 

 This would work for any variety of sweet potato but I recommend the orange-fleshed ones like garnet or jewel yams. 

 

Thyroid-healthy Highlights

  • Sweet potatoes are loaded with complex carbohydrates that can help fill you up and stabilize blood sugar levels. They’re also a rich source of thyroid- and immune-supportive antioxidants beta carotene and vitamin C, as well as the minerals copper and manganese. In addition, sweet potatoes support gut health with prebiotic fiber, and are also considered anti-inflammatory. 
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil is considered one of the world’s healthiest fats. Some of its many scientifically-proven health benefits include anti-inflammatory properties, high antioxidants, and reduced risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease.
  • According to Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, extra virgin olive oil is safer for high-heat cooking than previously thought, due to it's high content of anti-oxidants. 

 

 

Crispy Sweet Potato Rounds

Crispy Sweet Potato Rounds

Yield: 4
Author:
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 40 MinTotal time: 50 Min
Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Paleo, AIP.

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, sliced 1/4 to 1/3-inch thick
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, or coconut oil (melted)
  • fine sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste (omit for strict AIP)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Feel free to either peel the sweet potatoes or leave the skin on before slicing into rounds. Chef's choice! (Leaving the skin on does increase the fiber content and nutrient density.)
  3. Place sweet potato slices on a large, rimmed sheet pan.
  4. Brush with oil and season with salt and pepper (omit pepper for strict AIP). Flip and repeat so that both sides are oiled and seasoned.
  5. Place in oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and use a spatula to flip the sweet potato rounds. Return to oven and continue roasting until both sides are well-browned and crispy, 15 to 25 minutes more.

Notes:

These are a great accompaniment to Deluxe Burger Salad, and go especially well with the "Special Sauce" included in that recipe. Note: That recipe is Paleo, but not AIP.
