  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp Jamaican curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Coconut or olive oil


  1. Thoroughly wash the unpeeled sweet potatoes.
  2. Thinly slice the sweet potatoes. (It’s best to use a mandolin, which is a handy and inexpensive piece of kitchen gadget.)
  3. Lightly spray the slices with oil and place in a Ziplock or clear plastic bag.
  4. Mix the spices in a small bowl. Add the mixed spices to the Ziplock bag and shake to coat the pieces.
  5. Next, arrange the slices in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake at 425 degrees F for about 15 minutes. Flip, and bake on the other side for 10 more minutes.
