Chanterelles soup, Mushrooms croquette and crispy Sweet Potato

Do you remember the Mushrooms Croquettes from last week? They were super creamy. Well, apart from being a very tasty "Tapa", it is also an element of this week's new recipe.

Mushrooms croquettes

With the leftover mushrooms, and with an ingredient as seasonal as sweet potato, I have prepared a humble dish ideal for this winter, with very autumnal ingredients.

Chanterelles soup, mushrooms croquette and sweet potato ingredients

Crispy Sweet Potato.

You can cook Sweet potatoes in countless ways; roasted with skin, cooked, used in stews, fried and purees. It is a very versatile ingredient because besides the salty recipes you can use it in the preparation of desserts, cakes, jams, sweets and compotes.

Sweet potato

I have prepared some chips with it to incorporate into our chanterelle soup. It has been perfect for what I wanted, but you can cut the sweet potato any way you wish to and fry it.

If you don't have a mandolin, you can use a peeler or even a knife to slice it. Then fry it at 150 degrees in sunflower oil for about two minutes, and that's it.
