once i hear or read about a product (usually food) multiple times, i must see what all the hype is about for myself! this was one of those items- Mrs. Dash no-salt fiesta lime seasoning. i knew it would be the bomb on some seafood, but….
go ahead and add fruit to that list. where did i get that tip? the back of the bottle! paired with strawberries, it makes for a sweet, citrusy snack with a kick of lime spiciness. you’ve gotta try it on mango and pineapple too!
i heart sweet potatoes. i can smash an entire package of any kind of crackers in one sitting (especially gold fish), and you already know how i feel about my beloved cheese.
i wanted something different from my nightly roasted sweet potato! i bought a wedge of fresh parmesan cheese from HEB just for this, and you can get some at any local grocery store.
so when you put those 3 things together, you have one healthy, low-calorie sweet & savory snack cracker chip thing.
baked, not fried….you already know.
baked cheesy sweet potato crisps
2 large raw uncooked sweet potato, shredded
1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onion
fresh cracked pepper
1 tbsp liquid aminos
1 tsp fresh rosemary (optional)
preheat your oven to 425, and spray a baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray. shred/grate your sweet potatoes either by hand or by food processor and squeeze all the moisture out. don’t skip that step! also, chop up your green onion. add this to a mixing bowl and pour in your egg whites, grated parmesan cheese, aminos, and pepper and minced rosemary (any other fresh herb will do). mix! make tablespoon sized mounds all over your baking pan (make sure they aren’t touching) until there is no more left. press down slightly but do not flatten and bake for 20-30 minutes or until the edges are browned, not black
serving size = i made approx. 20, but it depends on your scoop size.
adapted from here! and yeah, i left them in for a little too long but i’m a gigantic fan of burnt cheese so it was ALL good. had i had some greek yogurt at the time, i would have tried the smokey yogurt dip to go along with it. i mashed up a ripe avocado and sprinkled some salt-free Mrs. Dash fiesta lime seasoning on top and that worked for me!
if you have the ingredients though, go for it:
Smokey Yogurt Dip (via How Sweet It Is)
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon cumin
