Fruit and Vegetable Chips


Vegetable Chips

Notes:

The thinner the slices, the crunchier the chips. If you do not own a mandolin, try the kale and green bean chips that do not need to be sliced.

When placing the chips on a baking sheet, line the sheet with parchment paper and lay the chips in a single layer. If the chips overlap, the edges won’t cook evenly.

For even cooking, rotate the pan halfway through and flip the chips.

For small batches, pop the chip in a toaster oven.

Vegetable chips do not stay crunchy for too long. They are best eaten the day they are baked or the day after.
