Balsamic Golden Beet Chips, a little bit of sweet and savory. Golden beets have a fabulous down to earth flavor but with the sweetness that beets have. Slicing these thin is the secret to a crunchy chip, sprinkled with a little sea salt, you and your kids, guests, friends, coworkers will forget they are eating vegetables.
Sometimes do you just get tired of paying an arm and a leg for those bags of baked gourmet chips? I’m not a big chip eater, don’t get me wrong, I love them, and put a dip in front of those chips like my Mango Zucchini Salad/dip or Artichoke Spinach dip, I can devour it. However, the bags of chips from the store is one of those things that I try to stay away from. Pretty much empty calories, not too many nutrients, cost a pretty penny for the amount that you get, and who needs those extra calories anyway. Once in a while the splurge is ok, it’s just one of those things I tell myself I can do without. Balsamic Golden Beet Chips are a diversion from those gourmet bags of chips, you don’t even need a dip to go with them.
Golden beets are a lesser known vegetable, most are familiar with their cousin the typical red beet. But I’m on a mission to get you better acquainted with the golden beet. Golden beets can be used in anything from a Golden beet carrot smoothie, to a Golden beet salad or coconut curry bowl. Between all the nutrients in the golden beets like potassium, and calcium, being low in calories and high in fiber, any which way you chose to eat them they are delicious.
Golden beets are definitely being grown in my garden this year and I can’t wait to find more ways to make them into appetizing dishes to enjoy.
