This Oven-Baked Beet Chips recipe from the Gather and Dine blog is an unconventional snack recipe that's a much healthier alternative to digging into a bag of potato chips.

In order to create slices of the perfect thickness, a mandolin could be used, although careful cutting by hand is also an option. A dehydrator is another specialty tool that is useful for making vegetable chips at home, but these beet chips can be dried out in the oven in about 40 minutes.

For this recipe, Gather and Dine used a blend of onion powder, garlic powder and a bit of salt for seasoning, which does the double duty of adding flavor and helping to dry out the chips faster. Part of the appeal of preparing a number of vegetable chips at home with spinach, kale, Brussels sprouts, carrots or even tomatoes is that you can season them to suit your taste, whether this is done with rosemary or flavors that mimic salt and vinegar.
