Hot Chips with Tomato sauce

Hot Potato Chips are a FAMILY FAVOURITE in the Awde home, and mama's homemade ones are a request VERY often. They are a very quick and HEALTHY alternative to the store bought ones. Let me share with you some of the common ingredients found in store bought frozen chips:

  • Canola & Cottonseed Oil
  • Salt
  • Annatto & Caramel (Color)
  • Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (Maintains Natural Color)
  • Flavour
  • Milk powder, etc...
Why would you want to have all those ingredients in a batch of fries? Firstly, they are not health promoting and secondly, they don't taste as nice as homemade ones. Here is the ultra easy recipe:

10 medium potatoes, washed and peeled (peeling is optional)
2 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs Celtic Salt

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius
  • Line 2 trays with baking paper
  • Cut the potatoes into lengths which are 1cm or less in width
  • Place the cut potatos in a bowl and toss with the oil and salt and then spread out evenly over 2 trays.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until browned and crispy. I have an OLD oven at home, so I place my trays above the element which crisps the bottom of the chips. I then flip them or place under a grill until nicely browned.
  • Serves 4-6

Store bought Tomato Sauce most often has as ingredients:

  • Vinegar
  • Sugar
  • Pepper
  • Flavourings
  • Citric Acid
You wouldn't want to be introducing that into your system. So make Yiannoulla's YUMMY Tomato Sauce instead.

140g punnet of tomato paste
2 Tbs. date butter or 1 1/2 tsp. honey
1/8 tsp garlic
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbs. lemon juice or more

 Mix all ingredients together. To alter consistency of sauce add a little water. Keep in the fridge until needed. Quick and easy, very tasty.
