Now that "superfood" has become a buzzword and it's fairly easy to find kale chips in the grocery store, consumers are looking for more varieties of homemade chips that are just as unusual and healthy. A great example of this comes from the Eat Thrive Glow blog, where Josie and Tanney concocted an recipe for Baked Beet Green Chips.

Although this part of the vegetable is sometimes thrown away, the leafy greens are usually loaded with more antioxidants, minerals and vitamins than the roots they are attached to.

The recipe calls for olive oil, plus salt and pepper to taste, although adventurous chefs could easily experiment with a variety of seasonings. This oven-baked treat takes about 20 minutes in total to make and assure that no part of the beet plant goes to waste.
