Beet Chips

To create thin, evenly sliced beets, use a mandoline slicer -- plastic models are available at housewares stores.

  • Servings: 4
Beet Chips

Source: Everyday Food, January 2010


  • 2 medium beets
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Peel beets and slice 1/16 inch thick
    with a mandoline. In a large bowl, toss beets with extra-virgin olive oil.

  2. On two rimmed baking sheets (or use one sheet and bake in two batches), arrange beets in a single layer. Stack another rimmed baking sheet on top of each. Bake until edges of beets begin to dry out, about 20 minutes. Uncover and rotate sheets. Bake 10 to 20 minutes, removing chips as they become lightened in color. Transfer to a wire rack; chips will crisp up as they cool.

    I LOVE beets !!!! I bet these are amazing... what a great snack ! I need to make them

  • Kathleensoprano1 7 Jun, 2014

    Followed this recipe exactly, and half of them burned (burned beets are seriously nasty), the other half didn't cook enough (perfectly even slices). Going back to deep-frying, as it may not be healthy, but it works.

    These are amazing! I didn't cut them thin enough, but now I know for next time. They took a lot longer to cook and weren't crunchy enough, but had a fabulous flavor. I will definitely make these again!

    I didn't have two medium beets, but I did have four small beets. However, even using all four I didn't get many chips from this recipe, certainly not enough for four people. The ones I did get turned out quite good, almost like sweet potato chips. Also, perhaps I didn't bake long enough or perhaps I added too much oil before baking, but after an hour the chips became soft and pliable. It was worth the test run.

    Hello, I followed the recipe but they ended up being soggy, the edges where crisp but not the rest of the chip. Cooking them longer only makes them taste burnt and not crispier, what can I do?

  • Jallenich 25 Sep, 2012

    I am wondering if the beets are boiled first. Do you slice them raw or after boiling?

  • What I Wore 14 Jun, 2012

    I'm kind of surprised other commenters found this time consuming... I prepped and slided the beets in under 5 minutes and the majority of the cook time was in the oven.

    Such a great way to use the beets we get each week from our CSA share. I'll definitely make these again!

    These are very tasty, but they are a lot work and the end you end up with two handfuls of chips. The beet slices get reduced to about 2/3 their size while baking. I was really disappointed to see this was how they turned out.

    These look delicious and nutrious.

    I've made the deep-fried version of these.. beet chips are delicious! I like them much better than regular old potato... these make a great garnish as well for a pureed vegetable soup. A baked version sounds even better!

    This recipe is great and a family favorite. It takes time but is worth the effort, plus it's a healthy snack option.

    I was disappointed with these. I love beets , but I just didn't think these were worth the effort :(
