Sweet Potato Pizza Crust

Omg this sweet potato crust is amazing!  The other day I came across this recipe.  It was on a blog called Breast Cancer Maven.  Check it out sometime.  She originally found the recipe on Blissful Basil’s website.  Check that blog out too.  Beautiful photos and great recipes.   I love sweet potato anything, so I knew I had to try it.  I made a few alterations to my recipe.  You have got to try this healthy sweet potato pizza crust!

The topping possibilities are endless.  I think my cashew pizza cheese would be excellent on this.  If I had any left, I would have used it.  I decided to top mine with spinach and avocado.  Next time I am definitely using the cashew cheese sauce!  This crust is so great.  It’s super crispy just how I like it.  The original recipe called for roasting the garlic and sweet potato.  I boiled my sweet potatoes, so I just used minced garlic.  You can most certainly roast the garlic and sweet potatoes if you prefer.  I also think this would be great with tomato sauce.

Healthy Sweet Potato Chips

Who doesn’t like sweet potato chips?  Most everybody likes sweet potato chips, right?  They don’t have to be fatty and greasy.  This healthy sweet potato chip recipe are delicious and can be made easily too.  I have more of a sweet tooth, but my husband loves potato chips.  He always has had a bag of Kettle Chips in the house.  Hopefully, he will just eat my healthy sweet potato chips from now on.  These healthy sweet potato chips 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

Ingredients

Instructions

  • 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.

Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

Ever since I wrote my post on Boca Burgers Exposed, I have been looking for homemade veggie burgers recipes.  These sweet potato veggie burgers are not my own recipe. However,  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 sweet potato veggie 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

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1-1 1/2 cups gluten free rolled 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

Instructions

  • 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!
