Oven-Baked Carrot Chips

Since I’ve started a mission to start featuring low-calorie, healthy recipes, I’ve been thinking about how to incorporate carrots into my menus. Yesterday, I found a recipe from this link which I used and ammended slightly: http://www.chow.com/recipes/29589-carrot-chips

Carrots are among the list of negative-calorie foods, and with a recipe that is so easy, it’s gonna be a fantastic side dish or appetizer for when your guests are over and want something delicious and healthy to munch on. As the chips come out crispy and crunchy, they are really very addictive and make a much healthier addiction than packaged potato chips.

OVEN-BAKED CARROT CHIPS (Serves 3 – 4)

Ingredients:

1) 3 large carrots, peeled
2) 3 teaspoons of olive oil
3) 1/2 teaspoon of large grain kosher salt (if not table salt will do)
4) 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper

Steps:

1) Wash and peel the carrots
2) Slice the carrots very thinly (as thinly as possible) into the size and shape you like (I made small rectangles)
3) Make the marinate – mix olive oil, salt and pepper together
4) Dip the carrot slices into the marinate and make sure it covers the entire surface
5) Put baking paper on a baking tray
6) Arrange the marinated carrot slices on the baking paper
7) Bake in the oven at 200 deg cel for 20 min or until the edges of the carrot slice turn golden brown and crispy
