Healthy Alternative: Crisps with Tzatziki Dip


Healthier crisps

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.



Half cup fat free natural or greek yoghurt
Half clove of garlic
One inch piece of cucumber
Black pepper to taste


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! Do you have any healthy alternatives for your favourite junk food?


  1. hmm I make my own tacos and burgers whenever I feel like going out for one. Home made food is so much healthier, only if I had the time to eat in all the time.

  2. That is such a terrific idea to use a vegetable peeler to make thin chips (or as you say, crisps!). I always thought the only way to get potatoes that thin would be by using a julienne slicer. Great tip!

  3. @Much to My Delight - yes we call them crisps in the UK! To us, chips are what you call french fries ;)

  4. this looks SO GOOD my mouth is actually watering...
