Herbed Parmesan Crisps Recipe

These are an interesting little snack that can get quite addictive. They are a great low-carb alternative to regular crisps (chips).

Serves

2

Ingredients

  • 100g (1½ cups) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp dried mixed herbs

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas mark 6 and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

2. Mix the Parmesan and dried herbs together well.

3. Place tablespoons of the cheese mixture on the lined sheet, spacing each heap about 2.5cm (1 inch) or so apart to allow room for them to spread.

4. Bake for 3–5 minutes until golden. Leave to cool and turn crisp.

Balsamic Beetroot Crisps Recipe

I absolutely adore beetroot (beet) crisps. They are super-easy to make and are great on their own or dipped into houmous

Serves

2

Ingredients

  • 900g (just over 2lb) beetroot (beet)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 150°C/300°F/Gas mark 2.

2. Wash the beetroot (beets) thoroughly and dry. Cut into very thin slices (think regular crisps [chips]) and place the slices in a bowl.

3. Mix the oil and balsamic vinegar together and whisk well, then pour over the beetroot slices and toss together well, making sure the slices are completely coated.

4. Spread the slices out in a single layer on a baking tray (you may need several trays or to do this in batches).

5. Sprinkle a generous pinch of salt over the beetroot and bake for around 30 minutes, or until crisp.
