Butternut Squash Chips

A favorite healthy snack is Butternut Squash Chips. Vegetable chips in general are awesome, but pretty time consuming when you bake them in the oven or use a dehydrator. BUT, if you’re not against utilizing your microwave, then this recipe is right up your alley.  Not only does it take just a few minutes to make, but they turn out crunchy just like chips should be. Quick and easy vegetable chips for the win!

The only drawback of this snack is that it’s not exactly fun to cut up a whole butternut, but if you’re willing to spend just a little extra at the grocery store, you can buy a prepped butternut and then you just need to slice it into thin chips with your mandolin.

So, how do you make vegetable chips without an oven or dehydrator?

Toss your thinly sliced butternut squash in a tiny bit of oil and seasoning. Then all you need to do is arrange them in a single layer on a microwavable plate and microwave them at high for approximately 4 minutes. It’s going to vary a bit depending on your own microwave, but once you’ve made this a few times you’ll kind of learn to know when your chips are ready by the look and smell of it.
