This crispy sweet potato is next level delish. We think it’s the perfect healthy side dish to serve at your next lunch or dinner.




Prep Time:  20 min

Cook Time: 1 hr & 15 mins



  • 5 kg (3.3 lb.) sweet potato peeled
  • 50 g (1.7 oz.) butter melted (or coconut oil)
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • salt and pepper



  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).
  • Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthways, so they have a flat side.
  • Then cut them super dooper thin so they look like semi-circles. You can use a mandolin if you have one.
  • Place the cut up sweet potato into a large bowl, add the melted butter, thyme, salt and pepper and stir until the sweet potato is coated in butter.
  • Grab a large baking dish, place the sweet potato pieces flat side down and upright into the dish. Make them overlap and look cool. It’s food art!
  • Place into the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them so you don’t burn anything.
  • Serve right away. They’ll be a mix of crispy delish and soft buttery delish.



  • Halfway through top with grated cheese for extra delish factor. Drooooool!
