Sweet Potato Chips + the Best Chilli Aioli

Keeping Sunday tradition.

Every Sunday lunch the family buys chips and chicken.

Today I wanted a funner version. Sweet potato chips cooked in coconut oil, rather than in vegetable oil like chips from the shops. Coconut oil is a stable fat so it is able to heated to high temperatures without destroying it’s wonderful properties. It also revs up your metabolism! It’s a win win really.

Recipe
Sweet potato
A few spoons of coconut oil
Himalayan salt

Aioli
A few spoons of sour cream
2 cloves of garlic
Sprinkle of chilli flakes
Dash of lemon
Large teaspoon of wholegrain mustard

Simply cut up the sweet potato to desired thickness and throw into either a fry pan or saucepan. Cook on medium heat with spoons of coconut oil. You can continue to add oil as necessary. Peel the garlic cloves and throw into the pan while it’s cooking. This will bring out the flavour. Add salt while it’s cooking to taste.

For the Aioli, grab the cooked garlic and crush it. Then mix it in with all of the aioli ingredients.

Serve while the chips are still warm and dip into your delicious sauce.

The vanilla sour cream frosting complements the banana bread beautifully.

Recipe:
1 cup quinoa flour
1/2 cup gluten free oats
2 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt

2 large very ripe bananas
2 large eggs
3 heaped tablespoons of coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp rice malt syrup

1/4 cup of walnuts

Frosting:
50 grams of warm butter
3 heaped tbsp sour cream
1 tsp of real vanilla extract (make sure they don’t sneak in some sugar)
2 tbsp rice malt syrup

Set the oven on 180 Celsius  before you start anything fun.

Just mix all the dry ingredients (except the walnuts) in a bowl and then make a well in the centre.

Then mash the bananas. Put bananas in a separate bowl and add eggs, coconut oil, and rice malt syrup. Mix with a fork.

Pour the wet mixture into the centre of the dry ingredients. Mix up well. Then stir in the walnuts.

Pour this mixture in a loaf tin that has been greased with coconut oil or butter.

Cook in the oven for about 25 minutes. Let cool in the tin.

For the frosting whisk all of the ingredients and slather on the cake after it has cooled.

Kale and Mango Salad

I had no choice but to make a salad for lunch today. I’ve been dying to use purple carrots for weeks now and I just happened to walk past some today. I obviously couldn’t resist the kale. It’s so beautiful.

Then the fun began. It’s a warmer day so I’ve gone for something fruity and joyful.
