The 7 Healthy Chips Week, Day 04: Parmesan Crusted Beetroot Crisps

These chips look so gorgeous, the crimson on them make them POP! A little sweet, a little savoury and a little bitter, they may be a bit of an acquired taste. Though luckily, T took to them real quick so that was good. We however, took longer.

The 7 Healthy Chips Week, Day 01: Parmesan Crusted Spinach

With the advent of T’s first year molars, he has discovered the joy of the ultimate crunch – CHIPS! Mamma ‘cheeps, cheeps’ he says and this mamma really had to put her thinking cap on, to give into this ‘CHEEPS’ demand of his. So here it is, my experiments with veggies and turing them into chips! Some are crunchy, some not as much, but all in all they’re baked, healthy and delicious.

So, here’s Introducing ‘The 7 Healthy Chips Week’. 

I am kicking day one with our family favourite. The Parmesan Crusted Spinach Chips.
