Beet Crisps

  • 12 beets red, golden, or mixed
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp celery salt or sea salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F, and line several baking sheets with parchment paper. Scrub the beets well with a veggie brush and cut off the tops.
  2. Use a sharp knife to slice the beets as thin as possible. When the beet slices are this thin, there is no need to peel them first. Watch your fingertips closely.
  3. Place the beet slices in a large bowl and pour the oil and salt over the top. Toss well. (If using red and golden beets, place in separate bowls and divide the oil and salt evenly.) Tip: Let the beets sit in the oil and salt until they release their natural juices, about 15-20 minutes. This is what allows them to retain a better shape and color.
  4. Toss the beets again, then drain off the liquid. Lay the slices out in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 45-60 minutes until crisp, but not brown. Test after 45 minutes and only bake longer if necessary. Remove the beet crisps from the oven and cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.
