Crispy Sweet Potato Skins!

Pic by Franzi.

In Portugal we ate tons of fish. Nevertheless, the one dish that impressed me most were crispy sweet potato SKINS! Yes, you read it right: skins. What a genius way to use the whole sweet potato, without creating any waste. Back home in Hamburg, I already prepared them for myself as an easy snack :).

Recipe:

Ingredients:

Thickly peeled sweet potato skins, olive oil, sea salt.

Preparation:

Spread potato skins on a baking tray and sprinkle with olive oil and salt. Bake at app. 225°C for 15 – 20 minutes (until the skins are golden-brown).

Enjoy!

Street Food Love: Kumpir!

I have a new street food addiction: When I get a little hungry while strolling through Hamburg I regularly end up in a Kumpir bar. Kumpirs are baked potatoes, sliced in the middle, mixed with butter and grated cheese and topped with various sauces, vegetables, olives, pepperoni and all sorts of other foods. The name ‘Kumpir’ comes from the Balkans. It’s a popular fast food in Turkey. What I like most about it is that it isn’t THAT unhealthy, it’s saturating and comes in lots of variations.

The two Kumpir bars you will find me most in Hamburg are the Kumpir König at the Grindel and the Kumpir König in the Schanze.

Enjoy!
