Crispy Vegetable Chips
  • 2 small peeled sweet potatoes; or 3 fat peeled parsnips, thin ends trimmed; or 3 fat peeled carrots, thin ends trimmed; or 1 small peeled taro root; or 1 small peeled yucca root; or 3 scrubbed or peeled medium beets

  • 3 tsp. vegetable oil, divided

  • ¾ tsp. fine sea salt, or more to taste

  • ¾ tsp. chili powder or curry powder; or ½ tsp. ground black pepper, garlic powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, cayenne powder, or wasabi powder

  1. Evenly space three racks in oven, and preheat oven to 300°F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Slice vegetables to 1/8-inch thickness using mandoline or very sharp knife. (You should have 4 cups sliced vegetables.)

  3. Pour 1/2 tsp. oil onto each prepared baking sheet, and use pastry brush to coat parchment. Place sliced vegetables on baking sheets without letting them touch. (Don’t mix different vegetables on same sheet.) Brush vegetables with remaining 1 1/2 tsp. oil, and sprinkle with salt. Place chosen spice in small, fine-mesh strainer, then lightly tap edges of strainer to sprinkle spice over chips.

  4. Place baking sheets in oven, and bake 20 to 30 minutes, rotating trays every 
7 to 10 minutes, or until vegetables 
begin to brown on edges and look dry. 
(To test, take 1 chip off baking sheet, 
cool on counter 30 seconds, then taste for crispiness.) Cool 1 minute on baking sheet, then transfer to large bowl or cooling rack to cool completely.

I made some and I was really pleased. This helped me from tearing into a bag of chips, lol. But seriously, I am new to being a diabetic and have been trying to find ways to balance my way of eating and this really helped me to not miss chips, I made them all with different seasonings and had fun making them and eating a few. My body thanked me, and I sure thank you for the recipe.
