A healthy substitution for those addicting store bought potato chips. These are not loaded with preservatives and they are not fried in a bunch of unhealthy oil. They ARE loaded with healthy fiber. Finally, by using a dehydrator you don’t even have to heat up the oven.
Don’t have a dehydrator, no problem you can also make these in your oven at a low temperature. I set my dehydrator at 135 degrees F so set your oven accordingly.
I like to use a combination of olive oil and avocado oil, but you can use either one by itself. You can adjust the amount of vinegar and salt to your liking. And add various spices to change things up, keeping your taste buds happy.
Such as, Chili-Lime, taco seasoning, Italian Seasoning are only a few of the possibilities. Just sprinkle them on the zucchini slices before dehydrating.
