Mexican Fiesta Sweet Potato Crisps
Sweet potato crisps
• 2 medium sweet potatoes cut into ¼-inch thick rounds
• 2 tbsp. olive oil
• salt and pepper
Cashew sour cream
• ½ cup cashews soaked (for minimum 4 hours), then drained & rinsed
• 1 tsp. lemon juice
• ½ tsp. apple cider vinegar
• ¼ tsp. salt
• ¼ cup water
What you need to do to assemble:
• salsa (tomato, avocado, red onion and chili cut into very small pieces with juice of one lemon and salt. Mix all)
• 1 big avocado peeled and cut in chunks
• green onions
For the sweet potato crisps
Preheat the oven to 220ºC. Line a baking sheet with oven foil.
First cut 2 sweet potatoes into about ¼-inch thick round slices. You should have around 35 crisps from that. Toss the slices of sweet potatoes into a bowl, add the olive oil and sprinkle it with some salt & pepper.
Then lay them in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and again sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden, flipping once halfway through baking. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
For the cashew sour cream
Prepare your food processor, or blender and fill it up with the following:
Soaked cashews, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, salt, water.
Blend it until completely smooth. You can add more water little by little, if necessary.
Top each sweet potato crisp with a teaspoon of the cashew sour cream, followed by a teaspoon of avocado, 1/4 tsp of salsa and a few green onions.
Repeat until you finish.
Serve immediately and enjoy 🙂
