Ok, for zucchini chips, you should slice them a half inch thick, otherwise they get brittle.
Kale chips are easy. Break kale into chip-size pieces, coat with olive oil, and gently toast in the oven on a baking sheet til nice n' crispy.
Thank you Diana for this idea! I finally got around to making these (CSA zukes taking over)
What an intense flavour! I'm gonna advertise for unwanted zucchini ;p
@ Marisa - Diana said she sliced hers about 1/2in thick. I got out a ruler & decided to do ~ 1/4in slices. I have a cheap-o dehydrator so I have to flip, shuffle, & rotate whatever I'm working with, but they came out nice. My 1st attempt I tried doing thinner slices & ended up with squash "tissue paper" stuck to the trays. they will shrink quite a bit as you are removing all the moisture! I started with 4 squash & have 1qt zip bag of chips.
I made a bunch of zucchini chips also, they are so good! I've tried them with salsa, guacamole, and spinach artichoke dip. Havn't tried nacho cheese yet, have to make some up
Um, I made some of these this morning.
I think I need bigger zucchini, my chips are the size of a penny.
(not going to stop me from dipping them in guac though!)
Thanks for the recipe!
Sometimes I just miss having something crunchy to eat!
