Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini about 3/4 pound
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Using a mandoline, slice the zucchini on the thinnest setting possible (usually 1/8" or 1/16" thick).
  • Place the zucchini slices in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the oil over the zucchini slices and toss gently to coat, being careful not to break the slices.

  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Arrange the zucchini slices on the parchment paper so they are not touching. But you can place them close to each other, as they'll shrink when they cook.

  • Sprinkle salt very lightly and evenly on each slice.
  • Place zucchini in the oven and bake until crisp and golden, about 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Once the chips are crispy, turn off the heat and prop the oven door and let cool for 30 minutes.
  • Serve chips alone or with your dip of choice.

Notes

  • Every oven bakes differently, so make sure to keep an eye on them after 2 hours.
  • This is my favorite mandoline slicer. It's super sharp and slices very thin!
  • And don't forget cut-resistant gloves anytime you use a mandoline. Keeping fingers intact is a good thing!
