Sweet Potatoes functional Tuiles

 

 

• 2 boiled medium sweet potatoes, peeled
• 2 tbsp rice flour
• 1 tbsp linseed meal (byproduct of flaxseed)
• 1 tsp coconut or olive oil
• sea salt or Himalayan pink salt to taste
• 1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted
• 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
• 1 tbsp dried fine herbs
• 1/2 cup green tea or water (if needed for dough consistency)
• 1 tsp dried garlic, optional

Method

Heat the oven to 180º C.
Mash the potatoes while hot and add all ingredients, except the green tea, which will be used if necessary to get a dough. Spread the dough on a surface sprinkled with some rice flour (can be on a non stick paper) and use a rolling pin from the center out; roll the dough into a rectangle not much thick (about 0,5 mm). Cut squares with pizza cutter or any other cookie cutter. Use your imagination. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet by using a spatula.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until they get golden, but be careful as it can burn very fast. (you can see some here). Transfer the baked crackers to a wire rack and let it to cool. Keep in hermetic pot.

Note: From France,’tuile’ means tile and relates to the shape of French roof tiles. The original tuiles are thin, crisp and sweet, but it has many different versions, including salty ones. Traditional tuiles are curved like French roof tiles and to get that shape you need to put the tuile on a curved surface, such as a wine bottle or rolling pin, while it is still very hot from the oven and let it cool. (I really tried it hard, but I was getting crazy and decided to make this simpler shape here).
