I LOVE beets. Roasted, pickled, pureed...whatever cooking technique is used I'll eat them right up. My boyfriend, on the other hand, strongly dislikes them. In a perfect world this is ideal because then I can have all of the beets. But this is not a perfect world and what this actually means is I rarely eat beets because we are always cooking for two.
I've always told him I will get him to like beets someday. It may have taken nearly five years, but I've finally done it in the form of beet chips! This was a total win for me. He ended up eating more of the finished product than I did! So if you already like beets or think you dislike them, let this recipe nurture your loving taste for them!
Besides this being exciting for me because I rarely get to enjoy beets at home, it was super exciting because it was the first time I used my shiny new mandoline my Poppop got me for Christmas. Gone are the days of taking forever to thinly slice vegetables by hand! I had my entire gigantic beet all sliced up and ready to go in a matter of minutes. So if you have a mandoline, great! Use it. If you don't then that's okay, too. You just gotta dedicate a little more time and concentration to your prep. Either way - be very careful! We aren't trying to make finger chips here. Let's stick with beets.

I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
