Colored Vegetable Chips – Healthy Snacks
No longer an insider tip, but still delicious: vegetable chips. Personal taste is paramount when choosing vegetables. This is my mix:
1 small sweet potato
1 small beet
1 small parsnip
6 tablespoons olive oil
also baking paper and kitchen paper
Cut the vegetables as thin as possible with a slicer. Mix the slices with a little salt and place on kitchen paper. Let air dry for 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees. First toss the vegetable slices with a little oil and pepper, depending on the variety, and then place them on the baking tray. And make sure nothing is on top of each other. It is hard work, but it is significant for a successful outcome.
The trays then go into the oven. Fries are cooked enough when they are lightly browned and the edges are raised. Many varieties are ready after 15 minutes. When you take the fries out of the oven, they should still be slightly soft.
They dry out as they cool.
If the fries aren’t quite done, bake them a bit longer. They are only durable when they no longer have moisture. Even then, you should eat them within a few days. carrot with sauce
