Beet Chips with Greek Herbs
How could I forget about chips (or crisps if you so prefer)??
Such tasty and necessary treat when watching a beautiful romantic film.
Of course coupled with a jug of pure water and maybe a glass of dry wine from the south where it ripens long and sweet. I could eat them right now! :) And I could go for that wine, too. :D
Is there a catch to this latest SCD snack? Well, it's eaten... Get ready to make a lot of it. That's also why I don't specify the amount of beet, but I recommend at least 1 kg of this ingredient when trying for the first time. Apart from the beet coloring everything red, you might also find the next day, you didn't make enough of the chips. :)))))
By the way, I don't usually do this, but this time I will also recommend you a movie. The Intern, starring Robert De Niro, I'm sure men will enjoy this one as well. ;)
Scrape the skin off of the beet and cut into thin slices. Try to make them the same thickness, it affects the baking process. Oh, and get some disposable gloves, beet is an amazing colorant, not even the kitchen countertop is safe. ;)
Then I use plastic food bags put the beet in, add salt, some oil (don't use very much oil at all), close the bag and properly mix it all by shaking.
After that, I start lining up the beet on the tin which is covered by baking paper. You don't necessarily have to put them next to each other (even though recipes tell you to do so), from my experience it's ok if the slices overlap a little bit. The beet loses most of its juice during the baking, it will shrink nicely. :) And finally, I scatter some of my favorite mix of herbs or spices imported from Crete (oregano, parsley, pepper, thyme, chilli) and it's time to put it all in the preheated thermal oven. It took me about 50 minutes on 200°C.
Around the halfway point of the baking I flipped the slices and once it was reaching the end I was checking on them, some were done earlier than others, so I removed those from the oven. You can use whichever herbs and spices you prefer, you can just go for marjoram and call it, that's another one of my favorites. ;)
