A plate of dried mushrooms accompanied by sweet potato chips on a wooden table.

What better way to get vegetables on the run than those “disguised” as chips. It doesn't get much better than this! Here's one recipe that's easy to make and loaded with nutrition.

Ginger Sweet Potato Chips

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced sweet potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp whole unrefined sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp ginger powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp wheat free tamari, coconut aminos, or sole salt water*
  • 1/4 tsp ginger juice
  • 1 tsp orange juice
  • 1/2 cup date paste (optional), or chia gel with stevia drops to your taste
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp gomasio

Directions:

  1. Peel and thinly slice the sweet potatoes using a mandolin or the 2 mil slicing plate of a food processor.
  2. Combine all ingredients except the sweet potatoes. Mix well.
  3. Gently toss the sweet potatoes with the mixture to coat evenly. The potatoes will begin to soften as you lightly massage them.
  4. Place on mesh dehydrator sheets. Place on trays in single layers.
  5. Dry at 115° F for approximately 12-24 hours until completely dry. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

*Sole salt water – This is used in some recipes as a liquid salt substitute for tamari. It‘s made by placing a Himalayan salt rock in a container and covering it with water. Allow to sit at room temperature until the rock dissolves. Store the sole water in a glass jar.

      Hi, Sharon! I think this answer depends upon how much you can handle! 🙂

      If you don’t eat them all right away, I would say that 2 people could handle this. Parcel them out to have as a treat.

    Can you use a regular oven at 115 degrees F if you don’t have a dehydrator (which I would love to have when I can afford one)?

      Hi, Laura! Some convection ovens can get close to that temperature, but most do not. What you can do is put your oven at its lowest temperature, then crack open the oven door to let some of the heat out. Some people have even put a small fan in front to disburse some of the heat.

      I bought my first dehydrator at a garage sale for $20. Look on Craigslist or other sites for good deals like that. It’s a great way to start dehydrating.
