Homemade Healthy Chips
- 2 medium sized potatoes, peeled (you can use as many as you want really and this recipe works very well with sweet potato too, it just depends on how much time you have)
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Additional seasonings (see below)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Slice potatoes very thin with a mandolin (link to blog of the gadgets) and toss with the oil. Brush a baking sheet lightly with the oil and lay the potato slices out in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and any additional seasonings, and bake at 200 degrees C for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes have browned and are crisp. Because there are hot spots in ovens, check frequently and pull off any that are already browned. Use a metal spatula to transfer the potato chips to a paper towel to cool, then to a serving dish.
Seasoning: In my house we eat them plain with olive oil and salt, however i have used rosemary before (just some fresh rosemary tossed in the bowl when coating) or also smoked paprika works very well!
ps. this recipe can also be made with sweet potato, taro or even with lotus root! its delicious! and a very good way to have a healthy gluten free snack without anyone ever know it is healthy!;-)
