How To Make Vegetable Chips

Choice is the name of the game with our veggie chips—just pick whichever vegetable is in season, on sale, or available at your local market. Try out our different seasoning blends, some of which you can make at home, and some that can be found in the specialty foods section of the grocery store.

First, to prep your veggies:

CELERIAC: 1 medium celeriac, peeled and thinly sliced 1/16″ thick

YUCCA: 1/2 medium yucca, peeled and thinly sliced 1/16″ thick

JICAMA: 1 medium jicama, peeled and thinly sliced 1/16″ thick

KOHLRABI: 2 medium kohlrabi, peeled and thinly sliced 1/16″ thick, lay the slices on paper towels, sprinkle with salt, and let sit for 15 minutes

Now, here are five different ways to cook them: one “base” recipe and then four easy tweaks:

1

Salted Veggie Chips

Prep time: 5 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes

Makes 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • Choice of veggie
  • 1/4–1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Cooking spray

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.

2. Blot dry, then proceed and lay the slices in a single layer on the baking sheets, coat with cooking spray, and sprinkle with the salt to taste and desired seasonings.

3. Bake, rotating the sheets and swapping positions halfway through, until the edges begin to brown and dry out, 8 to 10 minutes for yucca, 15 to 20 minutes for the others. To test crispiness, let a chip cool on the counter for 30 seconds and taste. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Store the cooled chips in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
