I'm on a beet kick! Golden beets to be specific! I know, I know...beets are one of those foods that you either love or you hate. Well, luckily, everyone in our family loves them and I am always experimenting with exciting and different preparations. This week, I made three separate beets, three different ways. So. Much. Fun! (Yeah, I geek out on that kinda stuff.) So, here is a really easy way to make beet chips. Throw them in your backpack and hit the trail with a delicious, nutrition-packed snack.
3 large Golden Beets
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Remove the beet greens and bottom stem area from the beets. With a vegetable peeler, peel the skin of the beets. Using a mandoline or vegetable slicer, thinly slice the beets making sure they are all of an equal thickness, which will enable the chips to cook evenly. On an aluminum foil-lined sheet pan, place the slices out, ensuring uniform spacing between each. If they touch or overlap, they will stick together. Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes, then take them out of the oven and allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before trying to remove them from the pan. Repeat this baking process until all of the slices are done. Happy, healthy crunching!
