2 medium, thinly sliced

Balsamic vinegar

1 tbs

99% fat-free plain Greek yoghurt

Wholemeal bread roll

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Cut sweet potato into 1.5cm chips. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Arrange chips in a single layer on tray. Lightly spray with oil. Toss to combine. Rearrange chips in a single layer. Bake 15 minutes or until tender and golden.
