I recently saw a recipe floating around Facebook on zucchini chips. I am all about finding new and creative, not to mention yummy, ways to incorporate more veggies in my family's diet so I decided to give it a try. And the fact that there are tons of zucchini at the farmers market right now helps too. ;)
It was super easy! All I did was thinly sliced up 2 medium size green zucchini. (you could use your favorite) I tossed it with about 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil along with a little garlic salt and black pepper.
I spread the zucchini in an even layer on my cookie sheet and then for the magic ingredient - Paprika!!! I sprinkled this over the top.
I baked them for about 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees. (You can play around with your oven temp if you have a hotter oven). They were crispy and delicious! Even my kids loved them. I did have some that were too thin and burned so watch your pan to avoid that.
The key ingredient is paprika because it adds SO many health benefits! Did you know that? And you only need a little each day to gain some great benefits from the vitamins it has as well as the antioxidants. Some of those benefits include:
Helps with Sleep
Lowering blood pressure
Helps maintain energy
And more! If there are things on this list you are looking for, consider adding some paprika to your diet regularly. It is easy to add to soups and different recipes. I also have other suggestions through supplementation that could help with those health issues as well in case you need a bigger boost. Please contact me for more ideas.
