Ingredients

Instructions

  • Scrub sweet potatoes under running water. (Peeling is optional. I don’t peel mine.)
  • Slice the sweet potatoes into rounds just under 1/4-inch thick.
  • Put slices in a bowl and cover with cold water. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of the salt over the top. Gently mix. Allow to soak for 1 hour or up to overnight.
  • When ready to roast the sweet potatoes, pour the water and sweet potatoes into a colander, and rinse with fresh water.
  • Pat sweet potato slices dry. (They don’t need to be perfectly dry, but excess moisture should be gone.)
  • Preheat oven to 425°F
  • Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Place half of the sweet potato rounds into a very large, rimmed baking pan (a very large, wide bowl will also work).
  • Combine seasonings and starch in a small bowl or container. Dust sliced sweet potatoes with half of the seasoning/starch mix. Mix with hands to distribute starch mixture evenly over sweet potato rounds. The idea is to get a whisper thin coating of the starch on the potatoes, not to cover them in starch. The starch should be barely visible on them.
  • Distribute sweet potato coins single layer onto parchment paper. Spray tops of sweet potato rounds lightly with cooking spray or a mist of water.
  • Repeat with remaining sweet potato rounds.
  • Bake at 425°F for 15 to 25 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft and beginning to brown. Amount of time depends on your oven and how thick the slices are. Serve hot with Creamy Lime Dip.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest - scant
  • 1/4 cup FRESH lime juice - (from about 4 limes)
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 – 2 tablespoon water - depending on how thick you want the dip to be
  • 1 cup mashed silken tofu - scant, (about 7 ounces)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons granulated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt - scant
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil - optional

Instructions

  • Using a citrus zester, zest fresh limes taking care to only use the green part of the skin, not the white part.
  • Juice the limes. (I use this citrus juicer to juice my limes.)
  • Place cashews in a colander or mesh strainer and rinse under hot water. Drain well.
  • Place all ingredients except lime zest in blender and blend until very smooth and creamy.
  • Add lime zest and blend to mix.
  • Chill.

Notes

Be sure to buy only fresh cashews and store them in the freezer until ready to use. Old cashews make this dip taste terrible.
For best results, place cashews in a colander and rinse under hot water before using. This will ensure cleanliness and help them blend smoother.
Yield: 1 3/4 cups

  1. I’ve been wanting to make these for a while. Almost did today, but got stopped by “fresh cashews.” What makes them fresh?

    1. You just don’t want to buy cashews that have been sitting around in the grocery store for a year or so (which, unfortunately, is quite common) because the oils in the nuts start to go rancid. If you buy your cashews from a supplier that has a good turnaround, then they should be fairly fresh.

  2. I have made these several times. Delicious– love both coins and sauce. I want to teach a group of HS students how to do and they come from limited resource families. Is there anything that would work to sub for potato starch and arrow root powder, which are not something they would have on hand?

    1. Hi Kathy,
      You could try corn starch. I’m not sure how well it would work, but I think the results would be close.

      So happy to hear you liked the recipe. Best wishes for your class 🙂

      Jennifer
