Baked Rosemary Beetroot Crisps

Let’s be honest, I am not a fan of beetroot. I would even say that I avoid them, despite knowing how good they are for the heart and sport performance.

If it wasn’t for our weekly organic vegetable box, we would rarely get beetroot. Although my husband would buy them from time to time.

Beetroot

This usually how I prepare beetroot:

  • boiled – can take up to 90 minutes, is time consuming because you need to add water to avoid cooking disaster (see picture below)
  • grated in salads
  • in a soup
  • roasted – my favourite
When you forget you left beetroot cooking. Luckily the pan fully recovered from this.

When beetroots arrived in my box last Friday, immediately I knew they’d end up crisps. I had beetroot crisps once before and loved them. I was ready to take the plunge and to give it a try.

Beetroot crisps are very simple to prepare. There is just one detail you need to be careful with: cooking time. They burn easily, really easily.

Ingredients: beetroots, olive oil, Celtic salt, rosemary

Equipment

  • a food processor
  • a large bowl
  • kitchen tweezers
  • parchment paper

Ingredients

  • 350 g beetroot peeled and sliced
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp celtic salt
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh rosemary roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 190C

  • In a large bowl, place the olive oil, the salt and rosemary, and mix
  • Add the betroot and toss evenly using the kitchen tweezers
  • Arrange the beetroot slices on a single layer. They can touch but make sure they don't overlap. You will need two racks

  • Remove from the ove, let cookl and serve

Notes

 
Preparing the beetroots. I’m not a big fan of scrubbing the beetroot and would rather peel them, however a good scrubbing may be enough
Cooking time. It is very easy to burn the beetroot crisps, so start with 10 minutes and advise. There is no exact time because it will depend on the thickness of the slices
