I got in yesterday after a particularly gruelling day; I'm swamped with Uni assignments at the minute, and was really hungry after a session at the gym! I didn't want to spoil my dinner though, and was really fancying some crisps. Instead of grabbing a packet out of the cupboard, I decided to make this healthier verison.
Preheat oven to 180C. Thinly slice one potato (you can use regular white potatoes, or sweet potatoes!). You can either slice them with a normal knife or if you want them to be really thin and crispy you can make the slices with a vegetable peeler. Season with salt, black pepper and/or dried rosemary.
Spray a baking tray with cooking spray and arrange the slices in a single layer. Put them in the oven, then keep an eye on them as they cook fairly quickly depending how thinly you sliced them. If the slices are a little on the thicker side, you might want to flip them during cooking.
Pour the half cup of yoghurt into a bowl. Grate in a small amount of garlic, I used half a clove but you don't want it to be too overpowering so maybe grate some in, stir it and taste. When you're happy with the garlic level, grate the cucumber into the yoghurt mixture and stir well to combine. Add a little ground black pepper to taste.
These were delicious, and really curbed my craving!
