HEALTHY FISH AND CHIPS

Author: Adam Macdougall   Date Posted:16 May 2016 

A lot of blokes steer clear of "healthy" eating because they think it involves giving up their favourite pub grub for lettuce leaves and bird seed. Adam's view is that you shouldn't need to sacrifice the foods you love - just tweak them - to make sure your nutritional requirements are as satisfied as your taste buds. Like his very tasty Fish and Chips!

 

INGREDIENTS 

1. Sweet Potato ( About 300g)

Serves 2 as a side

 

Chips Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 220C.
  2. Peel the sweet potato and cut into thick chips.
  3. Coat a cooking tray with cooking oil spray - be a bit generous!
  4. Put the chips on the tray, give them a light spray, and place on the top shelf of the oven.
  5. Cook for 25-30 minutes, turning once, until cooked and golden.

Hack

Instead of normal chips, you can now buy sweet potato chips in the frozen section at the supermarket.

So if you're strapped for time, grab a bag and chuck them in the oven.
