Turnip Chips

We all know chips can be sadly addicting, and the calories and carbs in traditional potato chips can add up rather quickly. Ever since I started a low carb diet, I was constantly on the hunt for replacements for chips, and luckily, root vegetables actually make great chips- especially turnips!

To make turnip chips, you will need: a few large turnips, the seasoning of your choice (I usually go for a garlic chip with just garlic and onion powder, but feel free to experiment with curry powder for curry flavored chips, or ranch dressing spices to make a ranch chip, etc.), and a mandolin.

To prepare the chips, prepare your spice blend and slice your turnips super thin using a mandolin (be sure to spear the turnip with a fork to prevent cutting yourself on the mandolin- those suckers are dangerous!), toss the chips in the seasoning, and you're good to go!

Ideally, you would want to use a dehydrator to suck all the moisture out of the turnips to get them super crunchy, but if you're like me and you don't have a dehydrator, just roast them on a sprayed baking sheet on 350 for about 20 minutes- flipping them over 10 minutes in. Pin It
