This may come as a shocker, given the fact that I make no secret about how much I love food, and specifically, eating food. But the fact is, I’m not much of a snacker.
That’s barely true, actually, considering I eat at least 6 times per day. At least. But I’m pretty predictable with my snacks and tend to stick the same things. (Reason #5743907534 I don’t do “daily eats” posts – you’d be bored to tears!) Another thing about my snacks is that they need to be filling and nutrient-dense. I need more than a handful of baby carrots or some stupid cereal bar that’s going to leave me biting my nails in 30 minutes waiting for the next feeding time. Certainly not a bag of
chips I mean air I mean chips.
And that’s not to say I don’t like chips. I’m not that crazy. I certainly like chips, when at a party or watching a game, especially when there’s a dish of edamole or hummus nearby. At times like these it’s apparent that I actually *love* chips.
Another food I love is sweet potatoes. So when popchips offered to let me try their new Sweet Potato Chips, who was I to say no?
If you’ve never tried popchips, here are a few fun facts:
- popchips are literally popped. Not fried, not baked, but popped up with a little heat and pressure, a process which allows its makers to stick to a few wholesome ingredients and make sure each chip is full of flavor.
- There’s nothing too bad about about popchips. Just a handful of all-natural ingredients that won’t leave your fingertips covered in grease and won’t leave your thighs looking full of, well, grease.
- Those bad guys like msg, hydrogenated oils, preservatives, and fake colors that make us want to steer clear of lots of other processed snacks? They’re not here. Not a trace. Popchips are all-natural.
Additionally, there are a few great things about popchips Sweet Potato chips that make them extra special.
- Sweet potato chips obviously way harder to resist than regular potato chips. Or is that just me?
- popchips sweet potato chips are the only variety that is gluten free!
- popchips sweet potato chips are one of a few flavors that are vegan.
And just so you know, they taste great too. My husband, less a creature of habit than me, was happy to pack bags of sweet potato popchips to take with his lunch, but I knew I could find another way to enjoy them.
To make a quick and easy sweet-potato crusted fish, just do the following:
- Place a wire baking rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet, and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
- Crush a snack-size bag of popchips in the food processor and pour them onto a plate. Sprinkle in some curry powder and mix it up.
- Spoon some coconut flour onto a second plate, and beat an egg in a medium bowl.
- Dip each piece of fish (I used a barramundi, a firm white fish) into the coconut flour, then the egg, and finally the sweet potato chip crumbs.
- Place the coated fish on top of the baking rack.
- Bake in a 375°F for about 12-15 minutes, or until fish is opaque in the center (give or take a few minutes, depending on how thick your fish is.)
Sound good? I know. I bet it would be great with chicken or tofu too! Want to try it out for yourself? You’re in luck. My pal at popchips has a snack pack of sweet potato popchips for one of you too. If you’d like to get your hands on it, just leave me a comment, or a few!
