Lately I've been experimenting with adding more variety into my diet. So I thought I would take the opportunity to also add some recipes to my blog. This week...zucchini chips! Yup, they taste amazing, and they're great for a healthy and satisfying snack :)
Grab yourself a zucchini, organic and from a local farmer if possible. Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Peel (optional, but I've been peeling my veggies lately) and slice. Try and make all slices as equal as possible, but just do your best. If they aren't equal widths, they will be varying degrees of crunchiness...but hey, who doesn't like variety, right?!
Arrange on a baking tray (I use silicon baking sheets). And then lightly brush with olive oil (you could also use coconut oil). I then lightly added sea salt, pepper and garlic powder. One side and then the other side of each slice.
Put in the over at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes, but flip each slice after 15 minutes. Since they shrank down so much, I combined them on one tray and put them back in the over for 20 minutes at 300 degrees F.
Mine didn't quite cook evenly...I guess I'll have to work on my cutting skills to make sure they're all even next time. However, I didn't mind that some were softer and some crunchier than others.
I had mine with a dollop of home-made nut butter (almonds, hemp hearts and pumpkin seeds). Yum!
