Published May 16, 2016 5:00 AM
Potato chips are good—almost too good. But as we know, constantly eating the store-bought, fried stuff isn’t too great for your health. Thankfully, many other vegetables that vary in similarity to the potato (think other root vegetables to leafy greens) can be baked into a crunchy crisp that tastes delicious. Keep reading for 19 veggie chip recipes, including this krispy kale recipe.
baked butternut squash chips
vegetable chips that can’t be beet
parmesan black pepper zucchini chips
sweet potato chips
Sweet potato chips (AND fries) are a crowd favorite—obviously. These chips are the most similar to the fried stuff you buy at the store, naturally because they’re also a potato. The baked fare taste fresher and healthier, in a good way.
brussels sprouts chips
baked root vegetable chips
Okay, okay. So technically these are fries, not chips. But it’s a vegetable and it’s baked and tastes DELICIOUS. (P.S. There are 50 more recipes where that came from.)
baked spinach chips
garlic parmesan yellow squash chips
cheesy savoy cabbage chips
oven roasted butter garlic carrots
Though not all your carrots will get super crispy, they’re still as chip-like as carrots come. Use pre-cut carrots to cut down on prep time, or slice your own and make them thinner to get a deeper crisp.
crispy baked fiddleheads
Fiddleheads, one of many underused vegetables, taste delicious when coated in egg, bread crumbs, seasoning, and baked. Just don’t forget to make the spicy lemon-sumac yogurt dipping sauce…
spicy, smoky homemade kale chips
Why buy from the store when you can easily make your own—at a much less expensive price? This recipe’s seasoning list includes paprika, cumin, chili pepper, and red pepper flakes, which results in a flavor-filled, spicy eating experience.
(Pst, love spicy food? We have a guide for that.)
mediterranean eggplant chips
This recipe calls for dehydrating—not baking—so keep that in mind if you’re lacking that kitchen appliance. Honestly, they look so crispy and delicious we’re considering investing in a dehydrator just to make this recipe.
red & golden beet chips
baked pumpkin chips
cinnamon sugar radish chips
Use a sweet seasoning for a different flavor sensation. The author of this recipe reported the chips taste spicy, earthy, warm, a little bitter, but still sweet at the same time. Sounds like something we’d ALL be interested in trying. Sprinkle them atop some yogurt for a sweet treat.
crispy parmesan tomato chips
The author of this recipe used thinly sliced (BIG) beefsteak tomatoes as her base, adding the mix of seasoning before adding to the dehydrator or oven… Which will take anywhere from 12-24 hours in the dehydrator and 4-5 hours in the oven.
