Raw Dehydrated Sweet Potato Chips Recipe

1 large sweet potato
Few sprinkles of sea salt
Drizzle of olive oil

 Slice the sweet potato thinly with the adjustable ceramic mandoline on the thin setting (0.5 mm) using the handguard, and put the slices into a large bowl. Drizzle the sweet potato slices with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt until well covered. Dehydrate the chips in the dehydrator on at least 115 degrees for 24 hrs or until crispy. Makes about 2 dehydrator trays of chips. They start to get soggy soon after they are taken out of the dehydrator, so put them in an air tight container and consume them within a few days.

  •  If the chips are not crispy perhaps you did not use sufficient olive oil or perhaps you did not dehydrate the chips long enough.
  • Please do not try to make raw potato chips.  Potatoes are part of the nightshade family and have natural toxins when consumned raw.

Sweet potatoes are not part of the nightshade family.

Yeah, potatoes are nightshades but sweet potatoes and yams are not I guess.

Yeah, you can eat sweet potatoes totally raw. They kinda taste like a super crisp carrot.

Sweet potatoes are not part of the nightshade family. Yams and sweet potatoes are not in the same family either.
For really good results when dehydrating sweet potatoes, soak the slices in cold water over night then steam or blanch them until soft enough to poke with a fork.

For people with high blood pressure trying to avoid salt, would this recipe be ok and the chips still tasty without adding the salt?

Hi Marie,

Honestly you could try it, but I don’t think it would be as tasty. Try this recipe for zucchini chips instead , it would do better without salt because lemon and dill are naturally salty. Best Wishes – Cecilia
