How to make them

Part of the beauty of this beet recipe is that there are only two ingredients, and not many more steps!

Pick up a couple of fresh beets from the store or farmer’s market. Look for medium to large-sized ones as they are easier to cut and will give you bigger chips.

See the end of the post for complete directions.

  1. Wash and trim the beetroots, no need to peel them.
  2. Slice them (width-wise) using a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer.

Once the beets are sliced, toss them in some olive oil, and then roast in a hot oven. These beet chips are that simple to make!

    Just made these over the weekend and our kids could not get enough of them. Such a healthy alternative to the usually trashy chips. Great recipe!

  2. My husband would totally LOVE these. I never would have thought to bake beets into chip form, it is a great idea! Definitely trying this!

    1. Sounds like I have a lot in common with your husband. I love beets too. I hope that you make these soon. -Scott

  3. Can’t wait to make these. Question – did you salt them before putting in the oven? Did you have to flip them over after the first 20 minutes? Did you eat them all at once or were they able to be put in an airtight bag and then, did they stay crisp? Thanks for showing that this can be done on the ole standard slicer/shredder….I would love to have a mandoline…I’ll keep my eyes open for one that looks safe and cheap.

    1. Lexy,
      I did not put salt on these, although you can if you like. Also, I did not flip these, although again, you can do that too. I did store these in a zip-lock bag and they stayed nice and crisp for a day or so (they didn’t last any longer!) The key here is to leave them in the oven until they are done. Essentially, you are baking and dehydrating these chips, thus they will shrink and shrivel somewhat, but ultimately will be a crispy snack at the end of the process. Thanks for the comments and questions – I love hearing from readers just like you!

  4. These look so good, Dan. I am a die-hard fan of the “veg crisps” we get here from Tyrrells (a British brand, not sure if they’re available in the US). They’re a mix of parsnip, beets, and carrot chips, but I believe theirs are fried rather than baked. I’ll try the recipe as soon as our weekly vegetable basket includes beets!
