Terra chips makes a wonderful line of healthy snack chips, including my favorite, Beets and Sweets, a combination of beet chips and sweet potato chips. But there’s no need to buy beet chips when you can make your own.
With this recipe, you can make your beets as crunchy or as soft as you like, depending on how long you roast them. And feel free to adjust the amount of oil to suit your taste.
•4 beets, scrubbed — do not peel
•1 Tbsp. olive oil
•Sea salt or kosher saltto taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Using the slicing blade of your food processor, a mandoline or a sharp knife, slice beets thinly. You want them to be the size of a potato chip. Toss with olive oil and salt. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Roast 45 minutes to 1 hour, turning halfway through, until crisp. Check often to make sure they don’t burn.
