Potato/Sweet Potato Chipotle-Cheez “Chips.” Oil-free. Gluten-free. Nut-free. Not Raw, Exactly.

Chipotle Cheez Chips An Unrefined Vegan

I’m feeling pretty good about the fact that I haven’t consumed a bag of salty snacks in months thanks to my dehydrator (the various tiny bags of chips that come in my Vegan Cuts Snack Box DO NOT count!), but despite the warm fuzzies I’m experiencing, there was still something missing.  Something starchy.  And spudly.  And toasty.  Where does the potato fit into the raw world??  To answer this need, I went Frankenraw and created a chip that was part potato, part sweet potato, part raw and part roasted.

  1. 1 1/2 cups flaxseed meal
  2. 2 red-skinned potatoes, baked (leave skin on if organic) & cooled
  3. 1 sweet potato, roasted, cooled and peeled
  4. 2 tbsp. vegan Parmesan cheese
  5. 1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  6. 1 small onion, chopped
  7. 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  8. 3-4 baby carrots
  9. pinch salt and black pepper
  10. 1 to 1 1/2 cups water
  11. 1 Tbsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos
  12. juice of 1 lemon
  13. 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  14. 1/2 tsp. cumin
  15. 1 tsp. dried onion flakes
  16. 1 tsp. prepared horseradish (not "sauce")
  17. 1 tsp. agave nectar
  18. 1 tsp. chipotle in adobo (or more if you like it spicy)
  1. Put the flaxseed meal in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cut the potatoes and sweet potato into chunks and add to a food processor. Pulse a few times to break them down, then add the remaining ingredients (cheese through chipotle) and process until thoroughly combined and smooth.
  3. Divide the mixture between two dehydrator trays that have been lined with non-stick sheets and pat or roll out (using another sheet on top) to create a smooth and even layer. Lightly score the dough into desired shapes and place the trays in the dehydrator and turn it on to 145F. Dehydrate for 30 minutes, then turn it down to 115F and continue dehydrating for about 12-14 hours - or until the chips are very crisp and dry.

    Yay! I’m back in the saddle, eagerly devouring your posts with my eyes, filing your wonderful recipes away in my brain for later, sometime special. You inspire me!

    You have tipped the scales. I know what I want for Christmas now…. a dehydrator. I’ll find a place to keep it. Such a great solution for that desire for something crispy and salty. You rock.

    Okay, I don’t know that a cracker can be beautiful…but they ARE!! I love those orangie tints. Looks like a nice bean dip you’ve got with them too. Is there a recipe for the dip?
    Seriously, I would have been nibbling away so quickly they wouldn’t have had time for pics 😉

    These look so amazing! And I know what you mean about starch. In my third trimester I cut out all grains, and it was rough. I was having dreams about toast!

    Oooh, I lurrrrve sweet potato and I’ve finally found a chipotle supplier in Australia, WHOOHOO!! Now all that’s missing is the dehydrator!!! It’s a sign! 🙂

    Holy crap you have done it again girl! My dehydrator has been doing hard yards pumping out dehydrated dog treats. Not a fitting end for something that cost me an arm and a leg and now I have something that truly looks like I might need to liberate it from the shed again! These look divine. They also look like a way to get my spud fix without falling off the wagon and ending up spending a weekend in the bathtub surrounded by crinkling bags and a growing sense of awareness that come Monday I am REALLY going to regret this ;). Seriously though, this is a bomb-diggity recipe girl…you RULE! 🙂

    My husband and I ate at a raw restaurant yesterday, and I almost bought the cookbook they were selling. I didn’t because almost every recipe required a dehydrator. I don’t have one and I just can’t bring myself to buy one because I’m afraid that I’d use it once and that’s it. It sounds like you really use yours, however; and these goodies look delish. Hmmmm…maybe one of these days I’ll break down. We’ll see. Celeste 🙂

    I nearly thought these were raw from the photographs! But these potato sweet chipotle cheez chips look super delicious, probably better than kale chips!!! x

    Still looks SO much tastier than your regular bag of chips. MMmmm! I love the roasted/raw/awesome combo!
