Beet Chips

This recipe is from the cookbook “It’s All Easy”, a wonderful book with easy, fast, and healthy recipes that can be made in the evening after a day at work.  I made some small modifications in the instructions so it’s just a bit easier to make.  Enjoy!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium beets (peeled or very well cleaned)
  • 1 teaspoon of rosemary, minced
  • Salt


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Use a mandolin to slice the beets as thin as possible.  If possible, you should try to get them as thin as potato chips.

In a bowl toss the sliced beets with the rosemary, olive oil, and a pinch of salt. 

Place the beets on baking sheets, making sure that none of the beet slices overlap. 

Depending on how thick your slices are, bake for 20-30 minutes.  

The It’s All Easy cookbook serves this with a cilantro hummus. You can serve these with your favorite hummus…Here’s a recipe I believe you will enjoy.
