A recipe for homemade veggie chips can be as simple as beets tossed with olive oil or as exotic as sunchoke chips with paprika. Forget frying and turn on that oven to make some of these addicting recipes.
For delicious and healthy veggie chips a mandoline is your best friend and worst enemy. And like a best friend and worst enemy, it might occasionally stab you in the back, or in this case, slice off a bit of your finger. A mandoline is a kitchen tool that has a single fixed blade and is essential for slicing paper-thin vegetables for any of these homemade veggie chips recipes. While it's an easy-to-use tool that can transform raw vegetables into delicious baked snacks, you must be very careful to keep your fingers clear of the blade. Fortunately, some of these recipes don't require a mandoline slicer. But it's a wonderful tool to have on hand for a number of recipes.
