How to make a healthy substitute for potato chips
August 12, 2016
Parsnip! I know but read on. I have a little confession to make. I adore potato chips. They have always been my naughty treat food. I prefer a savoury snack to a sweet one. Since recently being diagnosed with SIBO potatoes are off the cards for me and of course potato chips can not pass my lips. For my sanity I need some sort of “treat” to snack on once in a while when the mood takes me. Something that is not salad or meat. I was checking through Pinterest (come and find me there) where I saw a collection of dried vegetables. I re-checked my list of allowed foods and saw that I’d been overlooking parsnip. Parsnip is one of the vegetables I can eat in unlimited amounts. I eat parsnip very infrequently. It has never been a vegetable I’ve been excited about, until now.
Based on my baked Beetroot Chip recipe I decided to give them a try as a chip replacement. This is how I made them – oh and they are really really good! Obviously they are not potato chips but they are a good substitute and a much healthier, leaner one too. They would make a great lunch box treat if I felt like sharing them….
Next time I make a batch I’ll do a large batch in the dehydrator – this time I wanted to taste them quicker than the time it would take to dehydrate.
I hope that you enjoy your weekend. Put a bowl of these on the table to share and see how long they last.
