Zucchini Chips

Another incredible way to enjoy this versatile vegetable.

Believe it or not, I find the microwave method gets the best texture the most consistently.  The downside here is that you can only do one dinner plate at a time.  If you make them in the oven, allow them to cool completely.  Store in a tupperware with a paper towel so they don’t get soggy.

Ingredients
  

  • 200 g Zucchini medium
  • Cooking Spray
  • Salt to taste

Instructions
 

Prep

  • Slice your zucchini into thin rounds with your mandoline. You don’t want them too thin, just about a quarter inch or a little bit less is perfect.
  • An optional step for slight improvement in final texture is to pat the slices dry with paper towels. If you skip this step and cook them in the oven, they are a little less consistent in texture, but still delicious.

Oven Method

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  • Lay the zucchini chips out next to each other. They can be touching, but not overlapping.
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper and any spices that you like (onion, garlic, and cayenne are always good!) Cook for about 15-20 minutes, keeping an eye on them.
  • They will start to shrivel and brown a little bit. Some pieces will cook a little faster than others.
  • At the 15 minute mark, pull out the pieces that are done and continue cooking until the others are as well.

Microwave Method

  • Spray a large dinner plate with cooking spray.
  • Lay the zucchini chips out next to each other. They can be touching, but not overlapping.
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper and any spices that you like.
  • Cook in the microwave for about 8 minutes, depending on the strength of your microwave (read: keep an eye on them!).
  • They wll shrivel and dry and turn a little bit brown in the center.
  • Use a pot holder to take the plate out of the microwave, as it’s probably quite hot.

Dehydrator Method

  • Turn your dehydrator to the highest setting (about 200 degrees).
  • Lay the zucchini chips out next to each other on mesh sheets. They can be touching, but not overlapping.
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper and any spices that you like.
  • Dehydrate for about 6 hours or until completely dry.
