    Having a lack of chips and crackers in my diet tends to limit my options, though, which can make social gatherings, parties, etc a challenge.

    Enter the white sweet potato!

    Okay…the drier, yellowish-white variety is a sweet potato and the more moist, bright orange type is a yam…

    …but no matter what you call it, be sure to choose the non-orange variety for this recipe.

    It will hold up better and not soften as much when you bake it because the white variety has less moisture.

    The sweet potato forms a nice foundation on which to pile your favorite toppings or to dip in salsa, guacamole, or paleo-style hummus (without beans).

    I used this recipe – it makes a very large serving size so you’ll have leftovers – and found it to be a nearly identical in terms of flavor when compared to regular hummus.

    Or, you could use this Beet Hummus recipe which is also bean-free.

    I seasoned the sweet potato disks with cinnamon, cumin, and some ground red pepper. Feel free to use what you like. These spices gave a nice depth of flavor. Smoked paprika would be awesome, too.

    • 2 medium yellow sweet potatoes
    • 1-2 tbsp avocado oil

    Instructions

    Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.

    Wash sweet potatoes and peel if desired. I left the peel on because I was feeling lazy. Slice into rounds a bit smaller than ¼”.

    Place sweet potato rounds on the baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle spices on top. Toss until evenly coated.

    Bake for about 15-20 minutes, checking frequently so that the bottoms do not burn.

    Top with hummus, guacamole, sauerkraut, or olives or use as a chip substitute for salsa, etc.
