Vegetable Chips—How to Make Your Own at Home
All props to potatoes, but there are plenty of other vegetables worthy of your chip bowl. Here, carrots and zucchini bake up crisp and get a blast of flavor from a dose of curry powder. If curry powder is not your thing, try them with any of your favorite seasoning blends. We’re partial to Teresa’s Killer Dry Rub. They’re also ideal for dipping, so serve them with your favorite hummus, guacamole, or ranch dip.
Curried Vegetable Chips Recipe
Makes 1 ½ cups
1 large organic zucchini
Coarse kosher salt
1 or 2 large organic carrots
Extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon curry powder
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Freshly ground black pepper
2 sheet pans, medium bowl
1. Prep the zucchini and carrots
Heat the oven to 350°F.
- Using a knife or mandoline, very thinly slice the zucchini and carrots on the diagonal.
Line 2 sheet pans with paper towels and spread the zucchini and carrot slices on top in a single layer. Sprinkle the zucchini and carrots with ½ to 1 teaspoon salt each and let stand to release excess moisture, about 20 minutes. Pat the zucchini and carrots with more paper towels to absorb as much moisture as possible.
2. Season and bake the vegetable chips
In a medium bowl, toss the zucchini slices with 1 teaspoon oil. Add ½ teaspoon curry powder and ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder, season with pepper, and toss again. On a greased sheet pan, spread the zucchini in an even layer, making sure they don’t overlap.
Repeat with the carrots, spreading them on another greased sheet pan.
Bake the vegetable chips, flipping halfway through, until just crisp and starting to brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool.
Transfer the vegetable chips to a bowl and serve. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Chef’s Tip: To recrisp the chips, spread them on a sheet pan in an even layer in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes.
