simplicity {potatoes}

A lazy afternoon soaking up some glorious Autumn sun, the kids giggling and running around in the backyard.  The cool chill making us all peckish for the perfect snack.

I conjured up a plan to turn a humble household vegetable into something to be enjoyed by all.  In four easy steps you can make your own crunchy crispy chips. Here's how....

1. Wash a couple of potatoes, how many is up to you.  Leave the skin on.
2. Using a madolin or slice attachment on your food processor slice them up nice and fine.
3. Put in a bowl and add a small amount of good quality olive oil.  You just want to coat them, not have them swimming in oil..so add a little bit at a time.
4. Place the potatoes on a lined tray and place in a hot oven for about 20 minutes, but it's a good idea to check them every ten minutes.  Taken them out when they are nice and golden and curling up at the sides.   If you like, you can season them now, when they are still hot and you can season them with anything you like.  I did a simple rosemary salt, but you could do lime & pepper, salt & vinegar or chilli & lemon.  the choices are endless.

Then sit back and watch your loved ones devour them up. Yes, it's easy to purchase a packet of chips at the supermarket, but these are so easy to make and taste delicious!

Oh and I'm over at Rohans talking more veg if you want to check it out.

Do you like to make a classic loved snack yourself? 



  1. There's nothing better than homemade chips straight from the oven. I've made these with sweet potato and coconut oil too. Delicious.

  2. Yum! I've always just made my potato chips like "normal" hot chips rather than crisps. They look delicious, I'll have to give it a go! x

  3. Ooh - this looks GREAT! I will certainly be trying this!

  4. Delicious! And looks so simple! I am definitely copying this one!

  5. Oh, I love this. How good are potatoes? We do home made wedges every Saturday night. I must slice them chip like though. YUM!

    Beautiful. xx
