Here’s how to make Weight Watchers Sweet Potatoes
Start by slicing the sweet potatoes vertically as evenly as you can. This will help with even cooking later so it’s not burning on one part and still raw at another.
Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil and allow the oil to heat up as well. Waiting until everything is nice and hot to add the sweet potato slices will make sure nothing sticks to the pan.
Place your sweet potato slices in the pan once preheated, and press with the back of a spatula so it gets some nice crispy spots. Sprinkle with a little bit of salt on each side.
Flip and cook the other side. It should take about three minutes on each side, but make sure you check that it’s cooked through in the center before removing from the griddle.
In a small frying pan, heat the garlic over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Move to a small bowl and combine with the vinegar, olive oil, and chopped chilli.
Tear or use a knife to shred the mint leaves and combine with the mixture. Give it a taste and season with a little salt if you think it needs some. Spoon over your sweet potatoes and enjoy.
