Beet Chips

Another way to make beets is to make them into chips - a recipe my pickiest of picky children even ate.  I realize that frying vegetables is not the healthiest way to prepare them, but at times a person needs to cave to get one child to try something new...at least that is my reasoning behind this recipe.

Here is what I used to make these chips:
4 medium-sized red beets
4 medium-sized golden beets
3 cups coconut oil
salt to taste

After washing the beets, removing the ends, and peeling them...

...slice the beets into fine strips using a mandolin.

Heat the oil to 350 degrees (don't try to fry them at any lesser temp...they will not crisp up if you do.)

Then place about 25 slices at a time into the hot oil.

After a minute stir the slices and continue to stir them until the chips no longer boil/bubble (that means the beet itself is done cooking.

Almost done


Move the cooked beets to a tray covered with paper towels and salt right away.

After the chips have cooled they will be crisp and can be moved to a bowl for serving.

Repeat with the rest of the beet slices.
