Fiesta Potato Delights

By Desiree Lange, Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

Well my granddaughter, Desiree out did herself making these tasty finger foods, that actually ended up being our dinner, along with Kale Chips. Who said eating vegan is boring? This dish is so tasty that the second time around it didn’t last even a hour. My husband came home and gobbled the rest up. Of course after telling Desiree how delicious they were.

There are some amazing healthy ingredients in this recipe, that are organic, raw and perfect for healing. For example raw walnuts, cashews, fresh salsa and green onions. Spices like cumin, cayenne and pink salt – all good. Grapeseed oil and olive oil (very little of course) – all good. And then the best part, organic russet potatoes. Definitely on a cancer diet. Makes about 30 crisps.

Potato Crisps
2 russet potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch round
1 tbsp. grapeseed oil
pinch pink salt and kelp and cayenne (in place of black pepper)

Walnut Meat:
1 cup organic toasted walnuts
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. pink salt
1/9 tsp. cayenne pepper

Cashew Sour Cream:
Combine in a bowl 1 cup raw cashews and cover with filtered water, soak overnight. We cheated 1 hour but it seemed to work when we place boiling water over them. Drain and rinse – blend on high speed until cream is smooth. Then add the following ingredients:
2 tsp. fresh lemon
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. pink salt


  1. Make potato crisps; Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place and separate potatoes and drizzle them with oil. Then rub the oil out evenly.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper substitute.
  3. Roast potatoes for 30 minutes, flipping them once after 15 minutes or until tender and brown. Then allow potatoes to cool.
  4. Make Walnut Meat: use a mini food processor, combine walnuts, chili powder, cumin, salt and cayenne into a fine crumble.
  5. To assemble: On each potato crisp slice place 1 tsp. of Cashew cream, followed with 1 tsp. walnut meat, salsa and green onions, and in that order.
  6. Serve while warm.

Love, love, love this recipe. Definitely a keeper.
