We ended up making a pretty big batch, but ‘we’ (yes, I admit I was fully guilty here too) kept eating them along the way, as I mentioned. So addictive and delicious. All that was left, when it came time for the blog photo, is what you see in the picture. Hehe. I have suggested this a couple times now, but if you do not yet own a madoline slicer, go grab. They aren’t super expensive, but really are a time and energy saver for sure! Also, when making different veggie chips, they are a big player in ensuring that the slices cook much more evenly. Each chip ends up being the same-ish thickness.
- yellow golden beets – unpeeled (can use other varieties as well) – quantity varies depending on size of batch you wish to make
- coconut or olive oil
- coarse sea salt and ground pepper
- assorted spices and herbs, as desired
- scrub beets thoroughly
- use a mandoline to evenly slice the beets
- put them in a bowl and coat with coconut or olive oil/spices
- use hands to make sure everything is all mixed together and all sides are coated well
- take some parchment paper and line a baking sheet
- place the sliced beets on the baking sheet in a single layer, making sure they are not overlapping
- heat oven to 250-300 degrees
- place the beets in the oven and cook until golden brown and crispy!
- note – you really do need to keep a close eye on them, as they can burn in no time
- use thongs to flip them every 10 minutes or so
- when fully baked, remove them from the oven and allow to cool on another piece of parchment paper or a wire rack (helps in getting the ‘crispy effect’ to it’s fullest!)
When we made these, we did 3 different flavours. They were plain (sea salt and pepper), chili spice and rosemary. All so yum! To top of this fab snack, we dipped them in some homemade guacamole! Again, this is one of those recipes that is just WAY too simple and tasty not to make. Play around and invent your own fancy flavs for your fam to enjoy. A guaranteed hit…and awesome party snack!
