Root vegetables help absorb more iron, reduce cancer risk and can help your exercise stamina.
Ingredients: (choose one or more of the following)
- Sweet potatoes
- Or other favorite root vegetables
- Olive oil
- salt & pepper
Note: choose only 3-5 veggies. Since you will be slicing them very thinly, they make a lot! Store in an airtight container room temp
Method: Preheat oven to 300˚ F. Using a mandoline slicer, thinly slice root vegetables the same thickness. Toss lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper or other spices as desired. Bake in batches on a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet to prevent the veggies from sticking. Cook for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness, until the edges are crisp. They will crisp up a little more as they cool off. Experiment with different types of salt, such as sea salt and Himalayan pink salt, as well as fresh and dried herbs to suit your family's taste. Serving size: ¾ cup baked roots
