RECIPE: Broiled Sweet Potato Chips

I've always loved sweet potato fries, but not been too crazy about the grease. The other night I cut up a white sweet potato and made fries by broiling them. I tried this again, with a few modifications, and cut the sweet potato into slices rather than fries. I ended up only cutting one of these sweet potatoes, but should have done both. They were that good!
1 large white sweet potato
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp curry
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1. Wash sweet potato and cut it into slices.
2. Turn oven to Broil setting and temperature to 500 degrees.
3. With a paper towel, lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil, then sprinkle sea salt and pepper on the pan.
4. In a bowl mix olive oil, curry, cumin, salt and pepper. Place potato slices in the oil mixture, and stir them around to coat them evenly.
5. Place potato slices on prepared baking sheet and pop it in the oven.
Checking occasionally, at about 4 - 5 minutes, take pan out of the oven and turn each potato slice over, then return pan to oven to bake another 3 - 4 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on them as oven temperatures vary.
6. Plate the potatoes with a small dish of Paleo Mermaid 'Secret Sauce' as described below.
1/2 cup Paleo mayo
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Curry
1/2 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Agave
1. Spoon mayonnaise into a bowl and add all ingredients except water.
2. Mix well.
3. Add only enough water to thin the mixture out a little - I'm guessing 1 Tbsp or so. The mixture should have the consistency of thick salad dressing.
4. Spoon into a small bowl for dipping. Enjoy!
