Baked Turnip Chips

Do you have a sweet tooth or a salty tooth? While I can turndown a glazed donut or a red velvet cupcake any day of the week, I have trouble resisting foods like movie theater popcorn, peanuts at the ballpark or a cheese platter. Potato chips? Yea, I’m a sucker for those too. Just ask my friend Nikki who teases me on a regular basis about my chip addiction!

Fortunately, I’ve learned that the key to avoiding these foods is to not keep them on hand. One of the key lessons I’ve learned in my weight loss journey is to make it as easy as possible for me to make the right choices throughout the day. Why tempt myself when I know I won’t be able to resist?

For that reason, we very rarely have potato chips in the house but once in a while, we buy a giant bag of root vegetable chips from Costco. These bags are not cheap and they rarely last more than a day so more and more I find myself making baked veggie chips at home. We love kale chips, sweet potato chips and I’m dying to try my hand at beet chips.

This was our first time making turnip chips after spotting them at our farmer’s market the other day. My 2-year-old could barely keep his hands off of them which I always know is a good sign.

Frequently asked questions:

What tool is best for making vegetable chips?

A mandoline slicer is the best tool to handle the task. If you’ve never seen one before take a look at this link on Amazon. A mandoline is a sharp blade that allows you to cut food down to your desired thickness.

Why should you make your own vegetable chips?

It’s cheaper than purchasing a bag of vegetable chips at your local store

You can control the calories as you’ll know what ingredients you’re adding

Further support local farmers by purchasing local vegetables.

What other vegetables can be made into chips?

Kale, beets, sweet potatoes, and many others!

No forks required.

Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and line two baking sheets with tin foil. Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Using a mandoline, thinly slice the turnips into chips and place in a large mixing bowl.
  • Drizzle turnip slices with olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss well to coat evenly.
  • Spread chips in an even layer on baking sheets. Be careful not to over-crowd.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning once halfway through to ensure even cooking.
  • Let cool 10 minutes to continue crisping then serve.

Notes

Note: The thinner you slice the chips, the more prone they are to burning. I prefer them on the crispier side but you are welcome to cut them slightly thicker.

        Mine didn’t either but I think I used too much oil. A couple were crispy and they were delicious. I’ll try again!

    Liz,
    I’m intrigued by turnip (and beet) chips. I usually turn my farm share turnips into soup or add them in pasties, but a chip, especially a baked one, sounds like something I need to try.
