You’ve probably heard of kale chips by now, but what about sun choke, parsnip, celeriac or beet chips? Baking thin slices of vegetables is a great snack and a creative way to eat up all sorts of CSA and farmers market veggies. Plus, homemade veggie chips contain fair less salt and oil and will be very inexpensive!
- A combination of Seasonal vegetables
- Winter- beets, butternut squash, carrots, celeriac, kale, parsnips, potatoes, spinach, sun chokes
- Spring- beets, kale, spinach
- Summer- beets, carrots, kale, potatoes, spinach, sun chokes, zucchini
- Fall- apples, beets, butternut squash, carrots, celeriac, kale, parsnips, pears, potatoes, spinach, sun chokes, sweet potatoes, zucchini
- Fine sea salt
- Olive oil cooking spray
Using a mandoline or handheld slicer, slice the vegetables 1/16 inch thick (If you are unable to slice them this thin, the vegetables will need to bake longer to dehydrate fully).
Place the vegetable slices on paper towels in a single layer; sprinkle with sea salt. Let stand for 15 minutes, then blot dry. Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Working in batches, place vegetable slices in a single layer on the baking sheets. Bake until crisp, about 20 minutes; sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe the baking sheets clean. Repeat with more cooking spray and the remaining vegetable slices.
Add garlic, your favorite seasoning mixes and serve with a healthy greek yogurt dip to add your own flair!
