View Full Version : What can I do with sweet potatoes?
07-04-2008, 08:32 PM
I had tried making them into chips once but my recipe said to put olive oil on them which caused them to never dehydrate, the recipe said dehydrate until crunchy, but how can they become crunchy when soaked in non dehydratable oil?
What else could I do with them?

You might try slicing them up thin on a mandoline into a bowl, then sprinkle some salt and curry powder on them, add some lime juice with only a LITTLE bit of oil, and work that all through the thin-sliced sweet potatoes. Then stick these babies into your dehydrator. This should do it for chip-like things!
Another thing you could do with sweet potatoes is to run them on a thing like a Saladacco or a shredder to do noodles shapes, add the lime juice and salt and let sit for 10-20 minutes or so to "marinate". Then add your favorite raw sauce or dressing along with some shredded cabbage or something like that. Mint leaves or cilantro would be good accents as well.

Whipped Sweet Potatoes Chad Sarno
Recipe from http://www.rawchef.org/recipes/recipe_022.html
1 c sweet potatoes peeled and chopped (I used part sweet potatoes and part parsnip)
1 c cauliflower chopped
1 c pine nuts (I used cashews)
1 c leek chopped
2 T onion powder
3 T oil
1 c filtered water
1 T sea salt
2 T dried parsley
In food processor combine all ingredients and blend until smoothest consistency.
Continue by pouring mixture in a high speed blender and blend until completely smooth.
Use spiral cutter (saladacco):
take a couple sweet pot and make them really thin.
put into a large bowl... drizzle with olive oil
now drizzle with apple cider vinegar.
now get your hands in there and mix it well. - taste
add another drizzle of apple cider vinegar if needed (mine did)
now put it all on a dehrydrator sheet (teflex)
mmmmm chow down!
or my absolute fav...
cut sweet potatoes into fry like strips.
lime juice (one or two limes depending on the amount of sw. pot)
let sit for 30 minutes
put in dehydrator to warm and lightly soften.
personally i don't even bother with the dehydrator anymore... i loooove these!
