I subscribe to many blogs. Most of them are either from France or from Canada. I think my attraction to those blogs is the fact that 1. they speak French, 2. a lot of the recipes are avant-garde so they can be inspiring though I never hardly cook what they propose because their recipes are time consuming. The recipe I am presenting today though is from the Blog called Assiettes Gourmandes. The author tells us her about her culinary experiences all over France and sometimes offer recipes she tasted. The recipe she proposed was intriguing and so quick that I had to try it.
Ingredients: sweet potatoes, beets, parnips, potatoes, olive oil, sea salt.
With a potato peeler or a mandoline, cut thin strip of vegetables. Place those strips on a silpat and with a pastry brush, coat each slice with olive oil. Cook in the micro-wave on high for 3-5 minutes. The recipe suggested 3 minutes on each sides but I had to cook mine 5 minutes. The vegetable should become dry and lose its moisture but should not burn or get any dar coloration. Remove the silpat from the microwave. Flip the vegetables and coat them with olive oil again. Cook on high for 3-5 minutes. Remove the silpat from the microwave and let the vegetables dry out and cool for a few minutes. Place them in a bowl and sprinkle some sea salt. Eat!! if you have too many, store them in a plastic bag so they will not soften up. Et voila!!!
Those chips were excellent to snack on, and so much heathier and cheaper than the store bought. You ought to try.
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
