Microwave Veggie Chips that are ready in five minutes and so much better for you than traditional store bought chips. Make them with all your favorite veggies and seasoning combinations!
I couldn't be more excited to share this recipe, or perhaps it's more of a kitchen hack, with you today! It's been life changing for me this week. I mean what is better than freshly cooked potato chips and these ones are guilt free. Let's be real. I have eaten these at least once a day for the past week and I don't see myself stopping any time soon. So many seasoning options, so many dipping options, it's the best way to eat your veggies.
Before we get into the how for these microwave veggie chips, let me share a bit about where this all started. Growing up, about once a summer, my sister and I would drive a few towns away to buy German Fries. Now these were'n't just any fries, they were freshly fried potato chips doused in an obscene amount of salt and vinegar. They were the ultimate salty snack. Fast forward a few years later and my husband and I started taking regular trips to Mexico where I once again fell in love with freshly cooked, street style, potato chips. I still regularly dream about the ones we had in Oaxaca doused in lime juice, salt, and hot sauce. They put store bought chips to shame. But as you can imagine, none of these options are very healthy and they are geographically impossible most of the time.
That brings me to last week when I had a seriously craving for these chips and looked to the internet for a solution. And that's when I came across these microwave potato and veggie chips. It seemed to good to be true, but after some experimentation, the results were seriously delicious. Plus I couldn't believe how much healthier they were compared to store bought chips. All you need is your favorite veggie, cooking spray or olive oil, your seasoning of choice, and a microwave. So easy and so very good.
