Home made vegetable crisps
« on: 22 March 2017, 06:46:37 PM »
    Ingredients
       
    •   120g sweet potato 
    •   120g carrot 
    •   100g parsnip 
    •   100g beetroot 
    •   spray oil
      Method 
    • Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 4. Slice the vegetables very thinly – a mandoline slicer is perfect.
    • Spray a little oil over a baking sheet and arrange the vegetable slices ensuring they don't overlap. You may need to make them in separate batches depending on the size of your oven.
    • Cook for 20 minutes, until lightly browned. It's vital to turn the vegetables frequently during cooking as they can easily burn. You may need to remove some crisps before the 20 minutes is up, as some will cook faster than others.
    • When all the crisps are ready, allow them to cool then mix together and serve.

        Take care not to burn your veggies. Root vegetables have a lot of natural sugar, so can scorch if you have the oven too high or don’t turn often enough during cooking.
        You can cook the crisps in the microwave on 300W for 10 minutes, then 1 minute on full power, which works quite well but only for smaller batches.

    Recipe serves 6 at 8.7g carb per 74g portion (as opposed to 13.3 per 25g commercial crisp pack).

    Really appreciative of this recipe Patti. I love the packaged ones but they are far too fatty for me at the moment. If these are just sprayed with oil they should be fine for me to eat. I will definitely be trying them.

    I think I might spray the veggies on top as well as the tray Maureen, but they would still be very low fat.   :)
