Vegetable chips have been all the rage in recent years, shooting straight to the top of the snacks charts. And it's no surprise: they're devilishly addictive, but deceptively healthy.
Now, most people prefer to eat foods that simply taste good, without considering if they are beneficial to our bodies. And usually, what our taste buds like most tends to be the worst for us in terms of nutrition. When creating recipes for my family, I stick to one basic tenet: eat in a balanced way. I eat healthy dishes and not-so-healthy dishes (sparingly), so I can treat both my taste buds and my body well.
But these chips! Oh, the deception. These chips are both a healthy snack and a fun bite. Beets are rich in protein and low in fat and cholesterol and full of fiber, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin C. I pair them with a creamy spread of cilantro, roasted garlic, and red pepper goat cheese. They have a great texture and flavor to them and a beautiful color and they add a feminine and elegant pop to any table.
This dish is also great for company but consider yourself warned: these chips will steal the show.
