Sweet Potato & Lime Dip with Air-Fried Pasta Chips

Sweet Potato & Lime Dip with Air-Fried Pasta Chips

I’m a bit late with the viral pasta chip trend but now I understand the hype!

My pasta chips are so moreish when paired with this zesty dip. By viral I don’t mean this will give you a virus, but this recipe has really taken off on social media platforms! If you don’t like things too sour, reduce the quantity of lime juice in the dip. I find that many people find sweet potatoes too sweet, but the lime really changes the flavour of this dip that will convert any sweet potato hater!

Packed with beneficial compounds such beta-carotene and vitamin C which are

essential for eye health and to boost our immunity, this healthy snack is a real crowd pleaser and is quick and easy to put together. Edible flowers are optional!

Ingredients for Sweet Potato & Lime dip

1 large, sweet potato baked and peeled.

1 ripe avocado (the innards of, not the skin and stone please!)

Juice of 1.5 small limes

2 tbsps. tahini

2 garlic cloves warmed in your microwave for 20 seconds with a splash of water.

½ tsp ground cumin

Salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients for the Pasta chips

2 cups cooked wholegrain pasta e.g., penne or fusilli

2 tbsps. vegetable stock or extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp Italian seasoning

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp onion powder

Salt to pepper to taste


  1. Add all the ingredients for the sweet potato lime dip apart from the lime juice, salt, and pepper into a blender jug.

  2. Season with salt and pepper. Add the juice of half a lime at a time, blend and taste and see if you want to add more lime juice until the dip to your desired taste.

  3. Set the dip aside in a bowl and decorate with chopped coriander if you so wish.

  4. Add the vegetable stock (or extra virgin olive oil if not oil free), Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper to taste to a large bowl and mix.

  5. Add the pasta to the bowl with the vegetable stock and seasonings and mix until the pasta is well coated.

  6. Preheat your air fryer to 190C and once heated arrange the pasta shells in the air fryer basket (make sure they are evenly spaced and not touching each other. You may need to airfry two batches)

  7. Cook the pasta shells for 10-12 mins, turning halfway until they are crispy.

  8. Serve the pasta shells with the dip. Both dishes will keep in the fridge for a few days.
