Okay Beets. I usually can take em or leave em but recently I have become a little BEET crazed. I am not sure why. Maybe it’s because they are in season, so bright and beautiful when you cook them or the fact that they have sugar and caramelize and get this super sweet flavor that I just NEED! Whatever it may be, I ended up with these super crispy baked beet chips that have become a staple side anytime I eat a sandwich or just need a snack.
They are so crispy and the taste is incredibly flavorful. That true beet flavor comes to the surface and is just Soooo Good! I love chips of any kind really. Check out my Amazing Baked Potato Chips. That are also guilt-free and a fave of mine!
Beets are full of nutrition:
- Vitamin B-6 and C
You can make these pretty quickly and add them to your dinner plate, even on a weeknight!
I simply sliced the beets, skin on (I cleaned them first of course) with my mandolin and patted them dry with a paper towel.
Placed them on a baking sheet and baked them until crispy, about 15-20 minutes at 425 degrees.
Wow! Look at that color! Color means flavor right? So true.
I love this photo since it looks like the chips are clapping for themselves. Ha ha!
