Smoky Beet Chips / Avocado Salsa & Fresh Fruit Salsa

 

FOR THE CHIPS

Ingredients:

2 medium sized beets, scrubbed clean

4 egg whites

1 tsp. smoked paprika powder

1 tsp. garlic powder

Cooking spray*

Flake sea salt for finishing

How To Prepare:

Preheat your oven to 375.

Thinly slice beets and place them in a bowl of water. Rinse beets until water runs clear and pat dry with a dishcloth.

In a shallow dish, beat your egg whites, paprika and garlic together.

Take your beet slices that have been dried and one at a time, dip into the egg white mixture and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Keep the chips close together but do not overlap. Place into your oven on the lowest rack.

After 10 minutes, spray the beets with your cooking spray.

Increase your oven’s heat by 25 degrees (375 for convection; 400 for non-convection) and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes.

Keep your eye on them and remove from the oven when they turn a beautiful golden red-brown color.

Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes.

Finish with flake sea salt.
