Raw Sweet Potato “Fries” with Chipotle Mayo

Eating a raw food diet doesn’t mean giving up some of your favorite foods. I used to love to order sweet potato fries with chipotle mayo. But my body did not love eating them! I felt heavy, bloated and like I had been sedated! The deep frying plus all the saturated fat in the mayo completely obliterated any healthy benefits that the sweet potatoes were offering. The potatoes offered in this raw food recipe are a little more chewy than crispy but great! And the “mayo” is even better than the original unhealthy version!

Sweet Potatoes are a nutritional power house. High in vitamin A and vitamin c, they are also loaded with fiber. They are excellent immunity builders and also help balance blood sugars. Adding these wonderful tubers to your diet provide a great healthy way to snack.

    Susan, Thank you so much for the wonderful & creative recipes and the AWESOME photography! Can you suggest anything in place of the young coconut? I was wondering about avocado? I don’t have very ready accessability to young coconuts and have never had good luck with them.

    when you say “chipotle seasoning”, do you mean chipotle powder (simply ground chipotle)? Thanks.

    Hi, I am new to dehydrating and may I know why we need to soak the sweet potato in the mixture with oil? Also, is it a must to use oil in order to make a crispy vegetables chips (e.g. carrot, potato, etc.) ?
    Thank you so much!

      You don’t have to use oil. It is a marinade used to introduce more flavor. Please note that the final texture is not the same as fried, since we are not using oil and high heat.

    Can you substitute the fresh young coconut meat for something else?

      I’m thinking the same thing. I wonder if jackfruit would work or coconut flakes.

    These were addicting! I made my sweet potatoes into chips instead though because I like a crunch.

    yum! I just made these in my new dehydrator and they’re really good! I didn’t have any Nama Shoyu so I just used the olive oil and added some salt and a little pepper. Thanks for the recipe!

    I think I’ve gotta try adding some garlic and parsley to coat the fries!!!

    I have done sweet potato chips in my dehydrator but never thought to cut them like fries! Even better, I bet they are nice and crispy! I use coconut oil and marinate them in apple cider vinegar and they turn out great too, have a salt and vinegar taste!

    How long do this keep for? Do you store yours in the fridge?
