These earthy baked chips are the perfect accompaniment to any fall lunch.
Welp, it’s officially November. The “month of the side dish” and also the “holy crap, I need to start buying Christmas gifts” month. But before we get into that – how was your Halloween?? We had such a great day. I volunteered at my daughter’s school for their Halloween festivities, then we went trick-or-treating downtown at our local businesses, where we received these from the Chinese restaurant ⇓
Yes, they were given to us unwrapped. No, we didn’t eat them. 🙂
Aaaanyway… after that, we came back home and trick-or-treated/passed out candy here, where we probably had a few hundred kids. NO JOKE. At least we were warned (and we managed to not run out of candy, which was basically a miracle).
Oh, and if you thought all of that fun wasn’t enough, apparently neither did we, because then we went to the Halloween Carnival by the harbor where the kids got to play lots of games, got some candy (yes, more candy) and other prizes, we ate (again), then went home completely happy (read: deliriously exhausted).
So now that we’ve relived my fun, tiring day, let’s talk beet chips. Have I ever mentioned my infatuation with that fabulously fuchsia root veg? OMG. I love it so much. That earthy sweetness just tugs at the ol’ foodie heart strings, ya know? Plus, and I know I’m a total girl as I type this, they’re just so pretty 🙂
Just fyi, I had never made beet chips before, but thought that they would go so great with my Fully Loaded Autumn Sandwich (which you should seriously check out because it’s ridiculous) and they do! And I’ve got some more good news for ya – these pretties are crazy easy. Especially if you have a mandolin on hand. Really, it’s just slice, season and bake. Simple. They only take about 12 minutes in the oven, they’re gorgeous, earthy, a little salty, slightly sweet and nice and crispy. Basically all the things. So go make ’em!
If you make this recipe be sure to snap a pic and tag me @thefoodieandthefix or use #thefoodieandthefix on Instagram so I can check it out! It makes me ridiculously happy to see what you guys are making 🙂
