Arthritis Friendly Recipe: Healthy Microwave Potato Crisps

My jaw arthritis has been much better since I had my daughter (an upshot of all those pregnancy hormones) so I've been fighting the urge to make up for 5 years without crisps by eating all those packets I missed! Luckily, these easy potato crisps take minutes to make and only don't contain any oil or artificial flavours. They are a great healthy treat for kids too - my little one loves gnawing on the thicker slices . Try making them with slices of carrot or sweet potato for a change.

I find them easiest to make using a mandolin but a vegetable peeler also works well. If you have bad arthritis in your thumb joint, you might find a 'y' peeler better to hold.

The time it takes these to cook will depend on the thickness of your potato slices and the power of your microwave so you may need to experiment a little with the first few batches. I also find that they get quicker to cook with subsequent batches because the glass plate in the microwave retains heat.

1 potato - that's it!

Makes 1 Serving

Slice the potato very finely using a vegetable peeler or mandolin. 

Place the slices on a sheet of non-stick paper or kitchen roll and pop in the microwave. Cook on high for about 2-3minutes until golden and crisp. Allow to cool before removing from the sheet.

Season to taste.

Optional flavourings:
BBQ - smoked paprika and garlic salt
Garlic and herb - garlic salt and dried mixed herbs
Sea salt and black pepper
Wasabi - wasabi powder,pinch of icing sugar and salt
