Beet Greens Chips

Beet Greens Chips

I love when I can keep food waste to a minimum. This week, after roasting some beets, I wondered what I was going to do with the greens. I didn’t quite feel like a salad, and I wasn’t planning on juicing soon. So I figured, if you can make kale chips, can you make chips out of any other green? The result was yummy and simple!

Ingredients:

  • Beet greens (I had the greens from 3 beets)
  • 1 tbsp Nutritional yeast flakes
  • Garlic salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Coconut oil spray

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 and cut the stems off the beet greens. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Wash and dry the greens and put them in a large bowl.

Coat with your oil and seasonings.

Spread the leaves out on the parchment paper. Don’t worry about crowding, these will shrink immensely.

Bake for about 10 minutes.
