Carrot and parsnip oven roasted chips

Parsnip and Carrot chips

About:

Do you crave for munchies on your evening snack? Yes but worried about the calories in deep fried snacks? Here is a baked chip with less oil and spice. These have a light and delicate crunch and natural sweetness that make for an interesting change of pace from the traditional potato chip.

A parsnip is a root vegetable that bears a strong resemblance to a carrot. Parsnips and carrots have virtually the same shape and texture, although the parsnip is lighter in colour and stronger in flavour.

Serves-3-4
preparation time-10 minutes
Baking time-25-30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Carrots-4medium
  • Parsnips-3medium
  • Olive oil-2tbsp
  • Sea salt-1/2tsp
  • Chilli flakes-1/2tsp
  • Finely chopped dill leaves-1tbsp

Procedure:

  • Pre-heat the oven at 180deg c. Line the baking tray with baking sheet and lightly grease.
  • Using a veggie peeler, create long strips of carrot and parsnip allowing the strips to drop into a large bowl.
  • Drizzle oil to coat veggies evenly and season with salt, chilli flakes and dill leaves.
  • And place on the greased baking sheet in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes/until crisp and golden brown- turning vegetables with spatula 2-3 times during baking.

I served this with nutty dip. Click for recipe

Note:

  • Slice them thin so they turnout crispy and bake evenly

      • Well — I think I need better tools to slice the carrots. (I was trying carrots only, since I had so many.) Also I think I muffed the conversion of centigrade to fahrenheit – I needed a hotter oven than 350 degrees F. I flavored with cinnamon – which was okay – but the roasting is not right – yet. Thanks Chitra. – Lynn

      • Lynn – Looks like the carrots were cut bit thichker hence crunchiness was lost. If they are cut thin then they roast well and crunchiness of chips will be retained. So cutting into thin is the key factor…Hope it helps…Thanks for your efforts…
