Parmesan Zucchini Chips

Parmesan Zucchini Chips
Zucchini are nutrient dense food and anyway that we can add them into our diet is good! Lucky for us this is not hard to do because zucchini are extremely versatile and can be used in many different ways so adding them into our everyday lives is easy. Zucchini chips are a yummy snack munch on for your next party or movie night and are healthier than potato chips. We also love that we can make them fresh at home super easily and we can change the flavor depending on what we want! We have a recipe for Parmesan flavored zucchini chips with the option of making them crispy or leaving them a little soft.

Ingredients
2 large zucchini, sliced into thin circles
Salt to season (plus extra for crispy option)
Pepper to season
1 tablespoon olive oil (only for crispy option)
1 ½ cup grated Parmesan
Sauce for dipping, we recommend Marinara or Ranch

Directions

Non-crispy option
Preheat your oven to 400°
Place zucchini slices on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top each slice with a generous amount of Parmesan cheese.
Bake for about 20 – 25 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.
Serve with a dipping sauce.

Crispy option
Preheat your oven to 245°
Spread zucchini slices onto paper towel sheets and sprinkle salt over them and wait about 15 minutes until the zucchini starts to “sweat.” Blot excess water from zucchini slices with paper towel.
Place zucchini in large bowl and add olive oil, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and toss together until well covered.
Place zucchini on baking sheet and bake for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until crispy. Be sure to check them at one hour.
Let cool before enjoying!
