Making your own crisps is very easy. You can use almost any kind of vegetable, but we kept it simple by using only 3 kinds. Did you know you can also get them crispy in the oven if you want to have them even healthier without the oil?
It's easy, just lay them onto a baking sheet, drizzle lightly with oil and bake them in an oven set to 190 degrees Celsius or 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 5 minutes.
In this recipe, we decided to fry them instead.
HEAT sunflower or vegetable oil in a Dutch oven or a heavy-bottomed pan. The easiest way to cut the veggies in thin slices is using a mandoline. If you don't own one, you can also use a vegetable peeler.
You can slice them any way you like, cut them into small thin pieces or long thin strips as we did. TOSS them with a little bit of all-purpose flour to prevent them from discolouring during frying.
PREPARE a large bowl with paper kitchen towels and set aside.
If you're using a pan for frying, you can easily check the temperature by dipping in a small piece of paper kitchen towel. When the oil starts to bubble, it's ready for adding the pieces of vegetable.
ADD them one by one, to prevent them from sticking. Don't overcrowd the pan. You'll notice they are done in only 1 to 2 minutes. REMOVE them from the oil using the skimmer and transfer them to the prepared large bowl.
Immediately bring them to taste using fine salt. Keep on frying until they're all done. Keep in mind the thinner they are, the faster they're done. Store them in an airtight container to keep them nice and crispy.
We decided they taste amazing without any kind of dipping sauce, but you can of course for example dip them into aioli. We also love these crispy veggies on the main course dish, or even on top of a salad.
