What better way to celebrate the Christmas season than with a yummy root vegetable? Spoken like a true food nerd, I know…but, believe me, this recipe is a MUST try! Throw these tasty chips into the mix with your Christmas roasts and eggnog, and you won’t be disappointed. Or better yet- leave them out for Santa on Christmas Eve. I hear he’s watching his weight 😉 …
As another semester comes to an end, I finally have the chance to experiment in the kitchen. And in typical Veg World fashion, I was aiming to create a recipe that was fast, inexpensive, and just plain delicious. Too difficult a feat?! Well, I’ll let you decide for yourself.
Nothing “beets” this color! 😉
Garlic Beet Chips
Vegan and gluten-free garlic beet chips that are a delicious and healthy snack! With their bright red color, these chips are a great addition to holiday appetizer spreads.
- 3 large beets scrubbed
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Garlic powder
- Sea salt
- Black pepper
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Using a mandoline (or knife- but be careful!), thinly slice the beets into even, circular pieces.
Place beet slices in a large bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Mix to coat.
Place beets on 3 baking sheets without overlapping. Sprinkle with garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until crispy (but not burnt- happened to me the first time)! Keep a careful eye on them!
Have a happy and healthy holiday!
