Warm Up With Hot Kumara Chips

28 April 2015

This quick kumara recipe takes oven chips to the next level with the addition of a little sneaky spice and a perfectly creamy/salty dip to go with them.  The smell as the kumara and spice heat up will draw everyone to the kitchen!

Kumara is a good source of vitamin C, iron, potassium and calcium, and is a perfect warming comfort food for the cold seasons.  

As a bonus this easy recipe is gluten free, vegan, and can be made paleo with just one substitute (see below).  Serves two-four depending on if you want it as a dish side or a main feature in a meal.

Avocado Dip



1 avocado

1 t tamari (substitute a pinch of salt to make it paleo)

1 garlic clove


avo picmokley



Mash avocado and mix all together - ta-da!


To keep your chips hot to the last one put them in a heated bowl.  This will also help prevent the bottom ones from getting soggy: the bowl won't steam up if it's warm.
