These healthy chips will make your heart sing!!!
I am sure you have heard me talk about gut health by now. As a Nutritionist, I am all for removing triggers from your diet and offering you healthy alternatives to all of your cravings without compromising mouth feel or taste. (Can I get an Amen!)
Chips are a big one and we all like to dig into a delicious salty bag of chips, am I right?
So today, I am showing you a great substitute for this nightshade treat. Here is the secret : Jerusalem artichokes are your new bff!!! Why, you might ask? Jerusalem artichoke are an excellent prebiotic food. Prebiotic foods are foods that feed the bacteria in your gut. It is so important to not only populate your gut with the right kinds of bacteria, but to feed these guys too so they are thriving and helping you live your best life!
Give these a try and let me know how you like them! And don't forget to get creative with the seasoning :)
3 to 6 Jerusalem artichokes
1 tsp of olive oil
Generous pinch of salt
Optional Seasoning: Smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, rosemary, chilli
Preheat your oven to 375 F
Wash the Jerusalem artichokes thoroughly, scrub if necessary (the skin stays on)
Thinly slice them using a mandolin (please use the guard!!)
Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix well, so all "chips" are coated with your seasoning
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
Place "chips" on the parchment paper, leaving room between all of them. If they are too crowded they won't crisp up ( You may need to make them in batches, depending how many artichokes you started with)
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy and golden brown
Let cool and enjoy!!
