Taro chips are cooked until crunchy with a dash of salt and spice if you like. For a healthier option, bake the taro chips rather than frying. You can also swap out olive oil for coconut oil for added flavor. Loaded with vitamins and fiber, taro chips are not only good but good for you.
Baked Garlic Spinach Chips
A bottomless bag of potato chips is no problem when the potato is subbed for spinach. For easy cleanup, take a bag of spinach and pour in couple tablespoons of olive oil and fresh garlic. Shake it up, bake, and then serve. For a bonus, add some cayenne or paprika for an extra kick.
Hippie Dust Kale Chips
Hippie dust may sound all too healthy, but really all it is is nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and salt. Sprinkle that over kale that’s been massaged with a touch of olive oil and then bake. Before prepping the kale, be sure it is completely dry. If it’s wet, the chips won’t crisp and they’ll be soggy, and nobody likes a soggy chip.
