Beet Chips

Beet Chips

Honestly, I had never eaten a beet besides a little taste-test nibble of my mom’s homemade pickled beets. After reading numerous articles raving about the health benefits of beets, I decided it was time I give the root vegetable another chance. I started off slow by adding them to our green juice (now referred to as “pink juice”) then I felt ready to go one step further and make beet chips!

I burnt my first batch, but thankfully the smoke alarm didn’t go off! I felt a bit silly that I had messed up, but I didn’t let it defeat me and I tried again. With a close eye on the oven, I finally achieved a crispy (not burnt!) batch of beet chips.

Paired with a creamy yogurt ranch dip these chips will disappear in no time! They are a delicious side dish to add to your dinner rotation and a great way to increase your consumption of beets! Enjoy!

Beet Chips

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 Beets
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • Pinch of sea salt

Directions:

  • Wash the beets and cut their stems off
  • Slice the beets into thin strips using a knife or mandolin
  • Toss beets slices with olive oil
  • Spread out evenly on a baking sheet
  • Sprinkle with salt
  • Bake at 350˚ for 15-20 minutes (keep an eye on them)
  • Let cool on a wire rack then serve

      I’ve never tried them steamed before! Do you add any seasoning or do you just eat them plain? I might have to try this out soon!

        Usually just pepper and salt! I really enjoy the taste but I guess you can just play around with it as well! 🙂
