The ever-so versatile zucchini. Our Baked Zucchini Chips are just one delicious way to enjoy zucchini. There are a million different ways to whip up some zucchini (like our Zucchini Pad Thai or our Raw Zucchini Pesto Pasta) and this is just another one to add to your arsenal. Grab them while they are still hot, considering zucchini are in peak summer squash season right now.
As I said before, zucchini is a great vegetable that you can whip up in so many different ways. Zucchini is also a healthy dose of magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and calcium. You can eat it as a raw pasta, bake it like chips as we have here, or even whip it into some muffins or zucchini bread. We want to use as much zucchini as we can especially in these summer months when zucchini is growing into monstrous sizes.
The ingredient list for these zucchini chips is as simple as they are to make. All you are going to need is one large zucchini, olive oil, cayenne pepper, and some salt and pepper to taste. Start this one off by preheating your oven to 375F. Slice the zucchini into thin and even slices. Make sure they are not too thin though, otherwise they will just bake to your baking sheet. If they are thick enough, they should slide off easily with a spatula. Brush each of the “chips” with olive oil and then place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle them with some cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Bake your chips for about 30-45 minutes or until they are at the desired crispness.
I like to eat zucchini chips fresh out of the oven, but you can always make ahead of time and store in the refrigerator to enjoy later. Have some fun with these guys! Try spicing them up with other herbs and spices to see what you like. Throw on some parm or toss in some sriracha. That’s what makes cooking so much fun! You can specialize them however you would like. What are your favorite toppings for zucchini chips? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
