Sweet Potato Rounds with Crispy Shiitake & Vegan Cheddar Cheese make a delicious seasonal appetizer for the winter holidays. These sweet potato bites are a crowd pleaser!



3 sweet potatoes (narrow), sliced 1/4 inch thick or less (with skin)

olive oil spray

smoked paprika

sea salt & pepper

1/2 cup vegan sour cream

1/2 cup vegan cheddar cheese

2 green onions, thinly sliced on a diagonal

1 package shiitake mushrooms, sliced and roasted


  1. Scrub clean and slice sweet potatoes using a mandoline to provide consistency in sizes and cooking time.  Submerge slices in cold water for 20 minutes. Dry thoroughly.
  2. Prep & roast the shiitake mushrooms while the sweet potatoes are soaking.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°. Place the sweet potatoes rounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spray with olive oil. Season with a sprinkling of paprika, sea salt, and pepper (on both sides).
  4. Roast potatoes for 30 minutes, flipping over halfway. I recommend setting a timer for this. Within the last 5 minutes, top with cheese so it melts slightly.
  5. Remove potatoes from the oven. On the baking sheet, top each round with sour cream, roasted shiitake, and green onions. Leave about 15 minutes for this.
  6. Gently remove prepared potato rounds from the baking sheet using a spatula. Best served warm on a platter.


Make-ahead tip: Slice the roasted potatoes the day before, soak, dry and store them in a reusable container. (Do not soak overnight in water). Start cooking 1 hour before company, leaving enough time to prep & plate before company arrives. It can be served at room temperature.
