Inspired by Trina, owner of our favorite local organic farm, we created a super healthy and tasty chip. One we can all feel great about!
 
We’re lucky enough to live in wine country on the central coast of California. Amazing wines are plentiful. And, it’s an abundant farm-to-table region.
 
We’re all about using local, organic, seasonal ingredients. So for us, it’s like Christmas every week when we pick up our Farmer’s Market Box at Templeton Valley Farms.

Templeton Valley Farms

We could not have more fun creating new recipes using what’s in season. The payoff: the freshest, most nutritious and delicious food you can access.
 

No package. No processing. No pesticides.

 

The way food should be!

 
This spring’s harvest is rich with beets. Beautiful beets in many varieties.
 
And if you’ve been living under a rock or haven’t heard, beets are a powerful superfood.
 
Known to support liver detoxification, healthy blood pressure, weight loss, and more… low-calorie beets are loaded with vitamins and minerals.
 
We know… this is the part where you’re thinking, “But beets taste like dirt.”
No, no, no… not with this crisp, sweet, spicy, and salty, barbecue-seasoned beet chips recipe.
 
 

You’ll need to bust out your special equipment, but we know you’ll agree it’s worth it.

A mandoline or V-slicer will yield even, thin slices. We like this one by Mueller as it’s very high quality and a steal at only $29.99.

You can also use your food processor if you have a thin slicing blade. You’ll need smaller beets to fit inside the feeding tube. We couldn’t live without this workhorse from Cuisinart. It makes slicing and chopping a breeze.

Or, you can cut larger beets in half before processing through the tube.
 
If you’re using different varietals of beets, for example golden, or other… definitely bake them independent of one another, on their own tray.
 

We found in our testing that some varietals bake more quickly than others.

 
Our best results were with the basic and very accessible dark red beet.
 
Another pro tip: Don’t peel your beets.
 
Leaving the skin intact controls juice bleed and also retains more fiber. And, the beet is easier to handle.
 
Last pro tip: Let the chips sit on their baking trays or a cooling rack to crisp up after you remove them from the oven to avoid burning them.

  4. Slice off the top and root end of beets. Do not peel. For any large eyes on the beets, remove with the blemish end of a vegetable peeler.

  5. With a mandoline slicer, slice the beet chips to 1/16 inch thickness. IMPORTANT: Mandolins are very sharp. We recommend using the mandolin food holder to protect your fingers and hands.

  6. Brush the beet slices very lightly with olive oil. Too much oil will steam the beet chips instead of crisp them.

  7. Sprinkle sea salt on the beet slices. Place both trays in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes.

  8. Remove both trays from the oven. Flip beet slices. Return to oven, rotating pans from upper rack to lower rack and vice versa. Bake for an additional 20 minutes. Additional baking time from 5 to 15 minutes may be needed to crisp, as oven temperatures vary. Watch closely as beet chips burn quickly at this stage.

  9. Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle with barbecue seasoning while hot. Cool on baking sheets or on a wire rack. Beet chips will continue to crisp as they cool.
