  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and diced into ½ to 1 inch cubes
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or other vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce (or to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  1. Place the sweet potato cubes into a medium saucepan and cover with water. Place the pot on stove over high heat and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and allow to simmer until soft, about 15 minutes. Drain and allow the potatoes to cool a bit.

  2. Place the sweet potato and all remaining ingredients into a food processor bowl. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides of the bowl as needed. Taste test and adjust seasonings as needed. Blend again.

  3. Serve with chips.

Recipe Notes

Makes about 2 cups.
I made my batch very thick. If you'd like yours thinner, just add water or unflavored non-dairy milk until desired consistency is reached.
