Baked Sweet Potato Chips
  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Salt
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line several baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Use a mandolin slicer to cut the sweet potatoes into paper-thin rounds. (I set mine to the thinnest setting.) You can use a knife to do this, but it takes much longer. Pile all the sweet potato rounds into a large bowl and pour the olive oil over the top. Gently toss to coat every piece with oil. Then lay the sweet potato rounds out on the baking sheets in a single layer.

    Sprinkle the chips lightly salt. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp and golden around the edges. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets. Then move the chips to a bowl, or plastic bag to store. If you happen to find a few chips with soft centers, pop them back in the oven for about 5 minutes.

    Sweet potato chips go from perfect to burnt very quickly. Start watching each batch at the 20 minute mark and remove them the moment they look 90% crispy. They will continue to crisp up as they cool

    Dairy Free Pesto Chicken


  • 4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless, approximately 2 lbs
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tbsp olive or avocado oil

  • 3 cups packed fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, shelled
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp garlic, minced, or 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, extra virgin
  • Slice the chicken breasts horizontally. This will give you 8 thin cutlets so they'll cook faster and more evenly.

    In a small bowl, stir together salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried basil. Set aside.

    Add oil to a large skillet. Heat to medium high heat. Press seasoning mixture into both sides of the chicken cutlets. Once oil is hot, add the seasoned cutlets. Sauté until each side has some browning and chicken is cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. (Depending on the size of your chicken you may need to sauté in two batches. If so, feel free to add an extra tablespoon on oil when beginning the second batch.)

    To make the Pistachio Lemon Pesto, add basil, pistachios, lemon juice, garlic, and salt to a food processor or high powered blender. Turn on the blender and slowly pour in your olive oil. Blend until pistachios are no longer chunky and sauce is smooth. For a thick pesto 1/3 cup of olive oil is perfect. You can use up to 1/2 cup if you prefer a thinner consistency. Taste and add more salt if desired.

    Spread about 1 1/4 tablespoon of pesto to the top of each chicken cutlet when serving. (The pesto recipe yields 10 tablespoons total so you want to divide that evenly amongst your chicken.)

    Salmon with Fennel Baked in Parchment

  • 1 fennel bulb, sliced paper thin (a mandoline helps for this)
  • 4 (6-ounce) portions fresh salmon fillets (skinless is best)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • 12 very thin slices whole lemon (from 1 to 2 lemons)
  • Several sprigs fresh fennel fronds
  • 2 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
  • 4 (12 x 18-inch) pieces parchment paper (can sub aluminum foil if you don't have parchment paper)
  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C)

    Create a crease in parchment paper:

    Lay down a square of parchment paper on a flat surface. Fold the parchment in half to create a crease, then open it up again.

    Layer fennel, salmon, fronds, lemon, oil on parchment below the crease:

    Place several slices of fennel bulb below the crease of the parchment paper in a mound, and sprinkle with salt.

    Place one fillet of salmon on top of the fennel bulb slices. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the salmon (anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon, or to taste). Sprinkle the salmon generously with salt and pepper.

    Lay sprigs of fennel fronds over the salmon. Lay 3 thin slices of lemon over the fennel fronds and salmon (more if you want). Or you could put the lemon sliced down first and top with the fronds, your choice. I think the slices on top look better. Top with oil.

    Fold the parchment over the salmon and secure close:

    There are several way that you can accomplish this.

    One easy and particularly attractive way is to fold a corner near the folded edge of the parchment paper into a triangle. Then about halfway down that triangle, fold another triangle over the previous triangle.

    Working down and around the parchment edges, you can create folds all around the edges. When you come to the last folded edge, tuck the corner under the parchment.

    Divide spinach among 4 plates. Top each with one-fourth of the sliced chicken, 1/2 cup sliced strawberries, and 1 tablespoon walnuts.
