I saw this recipe on www.fromsadtoraw.com. I really have to accept that I’m not into the raw food deal, there have been very very few recipes (not sure I can even pin down one!) that has turned out well for me. I’m usually sucked into them because they seem simple and have good ingredients, but…guess I just like things to be cooked the way I’m used to.
- 7 large, well-scrubbed, Yukon Gold potatoes
- Savory Sprinkles (Salt/Garlic Powder/Onion Powder)
- Slice potatoes as thin as possible.
- Dip in a bowl of fresh lemon juice to retard discoloration.
- Layer on a mesh dehydrator sheet and spray with Pam or olive oil.
- Sprinkle lightly with Savory Sprinkles.
- Dehydrate for several hours or until crispy.
- So on the plus side, I got to use my new mandolin-type slicer correctly for the first time (it seems like everything else I wanted to slice on it wasn’t right..like thin slices of zucchini but the long way, didn’t work so hot). The potatoes were perfectly even and very pretty!
- That’s pretty much where my happiness ended. I get the idea of dipping in lemon juice, but boy does it make the potatoes taste awful. I actually shuddered when I put one in my mouth. Not sure if there would be a way around that but I’m sure it would be a huge start!
- Also, when the recipe said “sprinkle lightly” with the seasonings, they weren’t kidding. I cheated and just used that Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt. Apparently I put WAY too much on. Again. Shuddering.
- I’m pretty sure that when I have a rare craving for chips (which truly is rare, I only ever really eat them with a sandwich or something), I’ll just stick with the Good’s red bag. You really can’t make anything better.
