Homemade Oven Roasted Beet Chips are amazing and you will never buy another store bought chip again!
Ingredients
  • 6 small- medium fresh beets, keep raw and peel skin off (I used red and golden beets. If you can't find both varieties use one; it doesn't matter because they all are delicious)
  • 4 teaspoons of olive oil
  • salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Take your fresh beets and peel them. If you are working with red beets you should wear plastic gloves to eliminate staining as well as using a dark cutting board.
  3. Once beets are peeled, it is time to slice your beets. I used my mandolin cutter and it was so so easy. If you don't have one you can use your knife but try to make sure you cut evenly and as thinly as possible so they not only resemble chips but also cook quickly in the oven. For the mandolin cutter, I used the ⅛ setting and they were the perfect thickness.
  4. Once beets are sliced, put them in a bowl and pour about 2 - 4 teaspoons of olive oil. Use enough to give a generous coat on all the beets.
  5. Place oiled beets on the cookie sheet evenly. Again fit as many as you can. I fit about 25 on each cookie sheet. It took me three cookie sheets (60-75 total) to cook all 6 of my small/ medium sized beets. Once the first batch is laid out and ready to go in the oven add a generous amount of salt to all.
  6. Place cookie sheets on oven racks that are in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and cook for 20 minutes. At the 20 minute mark, turn over the beets and cook for an additional 20 minutes. Mine needed all 40 minutes, but if yours are really small and thin (like my red ones) then take them out at the second 15-18 minutes. I didn't mind the crispy red ones so it is up to you.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack and chips will crisp up as they cool.
  8. Prepare to devour each and every one of these chips. The best part is you don't have to feel guilty with less than 30 calories and 1.5 grams of fat for about 10-15 chips.
