Sweet Potato Bars, Leather & Pate
- 3 cups of a combination of cooked sweet potatoes, yams, yellow potato or squash

- 1 garlic clove
- 4 leaves of kale or 2 cup spinach
- 1 cup chickpea flour
Bake or boil the veggies until tender and purée in a food processor.
As a Pâté or Veggie Pudding
This puree makes a delicious pâté that we use like hummus on corn thins or with veggie sticks. You can add the greens to the puree and blend them in if you want the nutritional advantage of the greens. I also eat it straight like a veggie pudding and love it.
To make Veggie Leather:
Spread the puree, with or without the greens, ¼ inch thick on a dehydrator sheet, if dehydrating, or parchment paper if baking in the oven.
Dehydrate for 5 hours at 108º, turn and continue for another hour.
Bake for 2 hours at 170º, turn and continue another 30 minutes.
To make Veggie Bars
Add chickpea flour and greens to the puree in the food processor and blend in well.
Spoon into a baking dish and spread out evenly.
Bake at 350º for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cut into bars or squares. Great with Chili or Beans served on top.
