Root Veggie Chips

This week I made root vegetable chips
It's a super simple recipe  :-)


  • 1 medium – sweet potato
  • 1 medium – beet
  • 1 medium – Rutabagas, raw
  • 1 medium – turnips
  • 1 medium – parsnips
  • 1 tablespoon – olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon – salt


  1. Wash, peel and thinly slice vegetables (to 1/8 inch or thinner).
  2. Place all veggie slices in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Arrange slices on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until your veggies are crispy, but not burned!

The roasted root veggies were still quite warm, so I passed around a few pictures of what they look like growing in the ground....

 Henry is looking at his veggies...I think he was a little disappointed because it was not bacon.  (When he saw the cookie sheet covered with tinfoil he said, "I know what that is, it's bacon!")
 I am so proud of Alena for taking a bite!  (She thought the reddish stain from the beets was blood. I reassured her that it wasn't.)   

  Raegan liked the veggies alot...She even asked for seconds!!
 I think Annalee was trying to figure out which veggies she had on her plate....Great thinking Anna!
