Roasted Beet Green Chips!
Remember back when I shared my recipe for kale chips, and mentioned that you can use any number of dark, leafy greens for it?
A couple of weekends ago – when I went on my pickled beet making tear – I found myself with the greens from 45 lbs worth of beets, thinking about what a waste it would be to compost them. I decided to see how they worked as chips.
Wonderfully! Not only do these Roasted Beet Green Chips taste great, they’re really pretty! The beet greens roast up in various shades of greens and browns. With the prominent red veining, they look like autumn leaves – probably tasting better than crunchy dead tree leaves, though!
One thing to note about making roasted beet green chips: You may think you have a ton of beet greens, but they dry down to very dainty little pieces of chips. You can eat an entire bunch of beet greens without thinking about it – so make more than you think you’ll need!

|Interested in Gluten-free cooking and baking? You’ll LOVE Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking!
How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour… whether store bought, or a homemade version. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal … not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.
