Up next is another Mimi Kirk recipe: Sweet Potato Wrap.
After making sushi garden rolls the other night, I wanted to make a wrap so that I could enjoy and grain-free veggie wrap, and since Mimi’s sweet potato wrap sounded appealing and since I already had all the ingredients, I gave it a go!
2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
3 dates, soaked and pureed (or 1 tbsp agave or sweetener of your choice)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (I used raw coconut oil)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of powdered ginger
3/4 cup flaxseed, ground
Filtered water or Fresh apple juice as needed (I juiced 2 apples and used that juice)
Blend all of the ingredients except the ground flaxseed in a high-speed blender until smooth. Add apple juice (or water) as needed to give it a smooth texture. Add flax meal and adjust the consistency by adding more juice (water) if necessary. Blend until it is smooth and thick and until you are able to pour it. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
Pour the mixture on nonstick dehydrator sheets a level to an even thickness. Dehydrate for 5 hrs at 105ºF. When dry on top, flip onto a mesh dehydrator screen and dehydrate another 5-6 hours or until dry, but still pliable.
Be careful not to overdehydrate. Store for up to three days in an airtight container or ziplock bag.
Cut your desired wrap to size and add your favorite filling.
Wrap tightly and serve!
Sydney tried a small piece of the wrap and wasn’t too impressed.
Unfortunately for me, I didn’t run to the store for my favorite veggie fillings, so my first impression of my wrap was not a positive one until I tasted the wrap by itself.
Tomorrow, I will try it again with a different filling while adding more pleasurable flavors. I will keep you posted after my next taste test!
Mimi Kirk has written a beautiful raw cookbook and I look forward to trying more of her recipes. You can purchase her Live Raw cookbook on amazon (Kindle: $1.99; Amazon Prime Members can read for free; Paperback: $11.53).
