How to Prepare Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Chips With Kale Pesto [Vegan, Paleo]
- Preheat your oven to 350°F.
- Rinse and dry the sweet potatoes.
- Use a mandolin, peeler or sharp knife to cut the sweet potatoes into wafer-thin slices.
- Place the slices next to each other on different oven trays. Make sure they do not overlap, so they have place to be crispy. Season the sweet potato slices with some melted coconut oil, Provencal herbs and sea salt.
- Bake 20 to 30 minutes and turn them halfway once. Make sure that they certainly do not burn.
- In the meantime, you can prepare the kale pesto. Mix basil, kale, pine nuts, olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt in a food processor with an S-shaped blade to a smooth pesto. You can also add a spoonful of Shiro miso and / or nutritional yeast flakes for extra flavor.
- When the sweet potato chips are ready, you can serve them immediately. The fresher, the crisper. Delicious with a spoon of pesto! :)
These chips are best when they come fresh from the oven. You can keep them in the fridge for at least 3 days, but they will lose their crispy bite. For a low-carbohydrate keto version you can replace the sweet potato with low carb vegetables such as turnip, daikon, cabbage, radish or kohlrabi. You can also use other sweet tuber vegetables such as beetroot, carrot, parsnip, pumpkin, parsley root, celeriac... If you use organic sweet potatoes, you do not have to peel them. Simply rinse and dry well with a kitchen towel. The shell is packed with nutrients and is particularly rich in potassium and fiber, good to Support your digestion and strengthen your immune system.
