Baked Veggie Chips

Try these for a healthy snack on a cozy day!  I used beets, turnips, and parsnips for this recipe.  All of which were a great mix of flavors.  I had trouble slicing the beets as thin as I wanted to because they’re so hard when they are raw!  So next time I think I’ll work with maybe smaller beets…or using a food processor to slice…that should do the trick! rootchipa

Packed with vitamin A, C, B’s and calcium you can’t go wrong!!!  They’re yummy just to munch, and works well as a side…maybe next to a sandwich? rootchipsb

Some chips may be done before others. Take those out to cool while allowing the rest to finish up.

The thinner cut, the more crispy and chip-like it will be

Serve immediately after cooling

The downside, they don’t keep their crisp, so you can’t really save them.  I would recommend only baking enough for what you need/want.
