Zucchini Chips

Thought I’d link up with Lisa today for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday, cause I haven’t done it for a while and it’s super-duper fun and all…

I have an unnatural affection for all things salty and crunchy and unhealthy for you.  There i said it.  I put it out there.  I admitted it.  They say that is the first step, you know, admitting you have a problem.  Hello, my name is Jo, I am a chipaholic!! :)

So, when I saw this recipe for zucchini chips, I fell in love!


Yes, they are chips, but for goodness sake, they are made from zucchini, so they have to be good for you, no? :)

Zucchini Chips

What you’ll need:

(serves 1)

  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • ground pepper (to taste)

What to do:

  1. slice 2 medium zucchini (about 1/2 pound each) thinly with a mandolin
  2. toss the sliced zucchini in a bowl with olive oil, salt and garlic powder
  3. line the dehydrator screen with the zucchini without teflex sheets or parchment to allow them to dry better
  4. sprinkle them with freshly ground pepper
  5. dehydrate at 140°F for about 4 hours (until dry and crispy)

I think you could probably do these in the oven as well, if you don’t have a dehydrator.  But you would have to be careful not to burn the zucchini.  So I would use a cool oven, and a little thicker slice on the zucchini.  Hope you enjoy!! Come back and let me know how you like them!! :)

As always,

    I recently made homemade potato chips–sliced thin with a mandolin slicer, then actually fried till crispy and browned–potato chips from a bag will never be the same again! Love that these aren’t fried, just dried! Will have to try this next year when we have fresh zuchinni.
