I decided to make baked veggie chips from beets and turnips that I couldn't seem to incorporate into anything else I was making this week. Cheap, healthy and quick, I developed four different flavorings for them: Curry, Japanese, Spicy "Crab" and Umami. The first two were my favorite and are pictured Japanese, left, and curry, right, in the main photo. Try one of these seasonings or get into your spice cabinet and start experimenting!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs root vegetables, such as carrots, potatoes, beets or turnips, trimmed, peeled and washed
      To Make All Curry Chips
  • 2 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 Tbsp garam marsala
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
      To Make All Japanese Chips
  • 1/4 cup rice seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
      To Make All Spicy "Crab" Chips
  • 1/4 cup Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp chipotle or chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
      To Make All Umami Chips
  • 2 vegetable bouillon cubes, crumbled
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line two cookie sheets with foil and then spray with cooking spray.
  3. Slice the vegetables really thin, ideally with a mandolin, but carefully with a sharp knife will work.
  4. Pick a chip seasoning and mix the spices together well in a large bowl. Or divide the chips into two, three or four parts and try more than one. Then toss the chips in the seasoning until well coated.
  5. Lay the chips in a single layer on the baking sheets. Bake 10 minutes, turn the chips over, and then bake another 2-10 minutes depending on size and thickness. Make sure they are crunchy before you remove them - they'll stay soggy otherwise. Repeat with remaining chips, cool and enjoy!
