Craving a crunchy potato chip but not the oily fat hangover that follows? We’ve tried all kinds of work arounds for healthy chips and as long as there’s oil involved the result is always the same. A heavy, oily feeling in the stomahc, accompanied by the thought “I wish I hadn’t eaten those chips”. So really, what’s the point? All you have to do is future pace 5 minutes into the future after you’ve eaten something you know isn’t going to make you feel very good to skip the craving all together and go for something that not only tastes awesome, but is also awesome for you!
Let me introduce the Crispy Dill Zucchini Chip These bad boys crunch just like a potato chip and while they take about 24 hours in the dehydrator, prep time is only about 10 minutes. Realistically, it would take you longer to go to the store for potato chips then it will for you to make these at home.
- 3-4 Large Zucchini
- 1 Bunch of Fresh Dill
- 1 Fresh Squeezed Lemon (use two if your lemon is small)
- a pinch – 1/8 tsp pink himalayan salt (less is more with this recipe)
Add Ons: If you don’t like dill, try some chili, chipotle, salt & pepper or even sundried tomato paste!
Instructions: Slice zucchini chips very thinly and toss into a large bowl. Squeeze the juice of your lemon over the zucchini and chop about 1 cup of fresh dill. Sprinkle over top and mix together with a large spoon.
Spread evenly on dehydrator sheets and set the temperature to 110 degrees. Let them dehydrate for approximately 24 hours, flipping once in between. You may find they need less time, so check them a few times to see how crispy they get. If you cut them thicker, they will take longer to become crispy, so slice them thin! Once you remove them from the dehydrator, store them somewhere cool and dry or the moisture will go back into the chips taking away their crunch.
