Beet Chips- root veg chips

Total Time

Ever wonder what those wonderful crunchy garnishes on top of your meal are in a nice restaurant? Well, this is them. Look fancy but o so easy.


  1. slice your beets paper thin on a mandolin.
  2. Tarot root also can be done the same way.
  3. you can also use a potato peeler to peel strips of parsnips or sweet potato.
  4. Heat you vegetable oil to 350 deg.
  5. For beet or tarot chips, fry in batches flipping during cooking.
  6. For sweet potatoes and parsnips, drop shavings into hot oil and swirl carefully so they dont stick together.
  7. Cook till crisp.
  8. remove to a paper towel lined pan.
  9. Season immediately with salt.

Great! I served these as nibblies before a dinner party and they were very well received. I used parsnip, sweet potato and beetroot - made thin slices using a potato peeler. I will make these again, as a fantastic tasty alternative to packet potato chips.
