If you love having snacks or munching on a bowl of chips, there's an alternative way to make a healthy snacks than just relying to those packaged, processed potato chips at the supermarket. All you need to do is to make your own healthy vegetable chips at home with ingredients that are easily accessible. If you want to make them even healthier, experiment with an array of vegetables. Chips don't have to be made from white potatoes try sweet potatoes, carrots, beets and even leafy greens like kale, which crisp up to taste very good nutty deliciousness in the oven. Making your own vegetable chips is easier than you think, and best of all, you have complete control over the ingredients. For hearty vegetables like potatoes and beets, it is pleasant if we use a mandoline slicer, which quickly and uniformly slice your veggies to various sizes, thicknesses and juliennes and waffle cuts so many fruits and vegetables. If your knife skills are steady and reliable, the chips can be made without a mandoline. Salt & Vinegar Kale Chips Since the whole concept of baking kale for a chip-like snack is nothing new to the average person, we thought we’d incorporate a yummy twist on the traditional recipe, use the leafy green to create a lighter and more nutritious version of one of the most popular potato chip flavors: salt & vinegar. If you're making kale chips, the prep work is even simple, just remove the leaves from the tough stems and tear into bite-size pieces. No matter what vegetable you're using, the process is just the same lay slices on a baking sheet, brush with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and then bakes for about 30 minutes, rotating the pan once halfway through. Your homemade chips will stay fresh in an airtight container for several days, so make a large batch for plenty of blameless snacking. Here are some of different vegetable chips. Carrot Chips: Why champ on boring carrot sticks when you can turn raw carrots into crispy, delicious chips instead? A vegetable peeler is the only tool you’ll need to make these sweet, paper-thin crisps that are perfect for healthy snacking or as a garnish for your next salad. The carrot slices shrink considerably when baked, so buy the thickest carrots you can find to end up with wider, sturdier chips. After slicing the carrots thinly, place it in a bowl and toss with olive oil and salt. Lay the slices on a baking sheet at 350 degrees F. Bake for 6 minutes, and then rotate the pans between the racks. Bake until the edges of the chips are just starting to turn golden brown, about 6-8 minutes more. Place the baking sheets on wire racks and let the chips cool until crisp, about 3 minutes. Using your hands, carefully transfer the chips to a serving dish and serve with your desired dressing. Skinny Baked Eggplant Chips: These are great for a low calorie, low fat healthy treat. Serve with guacamole or a yogurt based dip and you have a nice healthy alternative for your guests at your Holiday Party. Slice the eggplant using the madoline slicer, brush the eggplants with olive oil, then place the sliced eggplants on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes and for about ten minutes in, flip slices over and continue to bake until browned. |
