Made with carrots and baked instead of fried, these crunchy gems are a much healthier alternative to traditional potato chips. Aside from a healthy dose of vitamins A and C and fiber, carrots contain antioxidants that may help reduce the risk of cancer and also improve your immune system.
Total Time (Minutes): 20
3 cups carrots sliced paper thin
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp smoked paprika or more depending on desired spiciness
pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 215 degrees Celsius (420 degrees Fahrenheit).
Slice the carrot into paper thin coins or you can also use a peeler and cut long thin slices depending on what you prefer.
Place the carrot slices in a bowl and toss with the oil and spices. Try to ensure that the spice is evenly distributed over all slices.
Lay the carrots out in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.
Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, watch closely to ensure they do not burn.
