I am always on the lookout for new ways to eat veggies. Sometimes the selection at my local farmer’s market or Walmart produce aisle can get a bit narrow and I want to do something different with what’s available. I remembered in the back of my mind that a couple years ago I saw someone somewhere making chips with beets and thought that sounded a bit interesting so I wanted to give it a try.
It took me a few tries to figure out exactly how to do it. I found the key is to cut the beet just absolutely paper thin. In fact, I had to order a Mandolin Slicer from Amazon because my knife skills weren’t up to the task. Once I got that, it all came together pretty quickly, although occasionally I had to turn the broiler on the last few minutes of the cook time to get the edges crispy like I like.
I was also happy to find out that beets are high in Vitamin C, Potassium, Manganese and the B vitamin folate. They also turn your urine pink which is no big deal if you are expecting it but it can come as a bit of a shock if you are still wiping the sleep out of your eyes and when you look down, it looks like your toilet bowl is fighting breast cancer.
