Who doesn’t like chips? Most everybody does, right? They don’t have to be fatty and greasy. These are delicious and can be made easily too. I have more of a sweet tooth, but my husband loves potato chips. He always has a bag of Kettle Chips in the house. Hopefully, he will just eat my healthy version from now on. They did disappear pretty fast!
I did two batches of these. One in the oven and one in the food dehydrator. Both came out great and my kids loved them. We made more the next day. If you eat a whole bunch, who cares? They are healthy. It’s like eating a whole tray of Kale Chips. Delicious and guilt free.
Healthy Sweet Potato Chips
1 sweet potato
1 T coconut oil melted
Preheat oven to 200. Peel the sweet potato and slice it thin. I used a mandoline for this. Line a couple baking baking sheets with parchment. Place the chips on the baking sheet. Using a brush, brush a small amount of oil onto each chip. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for about 2-3 hours. Check on them often as everyone’s oven is different. I didn’t have to shake mine at all. I just let them cook and I would touch them every so often to see how crisp they felt. That’s it.
Ever since I wrote my post on Boca Burgers Exposed, I have been looking for homemade veggie burgers recipes. This is not my own recipe. but I make it a lot so I wanted to share it with you. I found it on vegweb. I made a few changes to the original recipe.
These burgers are easy to make, freeze well and a much better alternative to store bought versions. I will typically make a double batch so I can freeze a bunch. Then when you have a busy night with no time to cook dinner, you can whip these out, reheat and serve. Super easy. They are sweet so kids will like them too. I add avocado to the top of mine because avocados make everything better! These would go great with my Healthy French Fries.
Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers
1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1-1 1/2 cups oats (depending on the size of your sweet potato)
2 green onions chopped fine
1 T fresh parsley, chopped
1 T nutritional yeast, optional
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil the sweet potato until tender. Mash the cooked sweet potato. Add the oats and stir in the seasonings. I used my kitchen aid mixer to stir it well. Form the mixture into patties. Line or grease a baking sheet with a bit of oil and put the patties on it. I use a Mr Misto oil sprayer to grease the pan. Works like PAM, but much healthier because you can fill it with whichever oil you choose. No chemicals. Place in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until the burgers are a bit crispy on the outside. Enjoy!
This recipe is fantastic! I cannot take credit though. My husband, Marcus created it. He is the chili guy in the family. Actually, up until recently, he was the cook too! I have learned a great deal from him. Also, I should mention, this is super easy to make. You just throw everything in a pot and cook. It would probably be extra good slow cooked in the crock pot.
Amazing 3 Bean Sweet Potato Chili
3 cups veggie stock
2 cups black beans
2 cups kidney beans
2 cups pinto beans
A 28 oz can organic diced tomatoes
1 onion diced
1 cup corn
2 sweet potatoes diced
4 med-lg garlic cloves minced
1 T sp chili powder
3/4 T sp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 T oil (we used grapeseed oil)
We use dried beans and just soak them overnight. Boil them for about 10 minutes in the morning. Makes for a much cleaner taste. Take all the ingredients and throw them in a large pot. Cook on med low for about 3 hours covered stirring every once in a while. For the last 1/2 hour cook uncovered and you can also add about a T of flour to thicken the sauce if needed. We used brown rice flour. This makes a ton of chili. If you don’t eat it all, it should freeze nicely and then you will have a backup meal for a day when you don’t feel like cooking.
This came out so well that we are probably going to make this for our family thanksgiving meal. After all, we are the weird vegans of the family.
How does your family deal with your choice of healthy eating?
