I love beets. This was actually a recent love for me, when I was younger I never had a desire to try them but now that I have I can’t get enough. I made apple chips a little while ago and I decided it would be a good time to try out beet chips as well.
As a note: this recipe makes roughly enough to fill ½ a sandwich size, ziploc bag.
3 – 4 beets
salt for dusting
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.
Wash beets, peel and slice them to roughly ⅛” thickness, the thicker your slices the longer they will take to cook.
Lay slices flat on baking sheet.
Dust with salt to your liking, I found a light sprinkle worked well for me.
Bake for 1 hour.
Remove from oven and flip slices, dust with additional salt.
Place back in the oven and bake for another 1 – 2 hours.
Remove and let cool.
Towards the end of your baking time you may want to periodically check your beets, ensuring you don’t burn them. These are great with a little dressing or vinaigrette for dipping.
