Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Peel and slice beets as thinly as possible with a sharp knife or mandoline.

    Advertisement
  • Combine sliced beets, water, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil in a large bowl. Let marinate, at least 10 minutes.

  • Arrange beets in a single layer on food dehydrator trays. Sprinkle fleur de sel over beets. Store any beets that don't fit in the refrigerator.

  • Dehydrate according to manufacturer's instructions, 8 to 12 hours.

Cook's Note:

You could substitute sliced yam or turnip for the beets. The texture will vary, but if sliced thinly enough, almost anything can become a chip.

Tips

If you don't have a food dehydrator, arrange beets on lined baking sheets and bake in the oven on the lowest temperature setting for 3 1/2 hours.

These were excellent! I used the bacon salt on half of the batch and loved it. The texture is a little weird and off putting so I think that could use some improvement but other than that I have no complaints. When I make these again I will let the beets marinate in the vinegar overnight because I really liked that flavor that came out of them. Almost meaty if you will... Read More

Do not make the same mistake I did. If not using flake salt do not add a tablespoon of sea or table salt. It is intensely salty and unfortunately is inedible. Read More

Great base recipe as stated. I have made them with cider vinegar but really love them with balsamic vinegar. I wait to salt them until they are done dehydrating. Just toss them with a tiny amount of salt. Read More

I followed the recipe & enjoyed the result. It will be fun to try different flavours. The Kitchen Aid was great in slicing up the beets & the dehydrator finished them up nicely. I would definitely make them again! Read More

These turned out perfect! Perfect to eat on their own or add them to trail mix. I crunch them up and add them to my homemade trail mix of pumpkin seeds, sun flower seeds, dried lentils, dried chick peas, dried dates and dried mango. The salt and vinegar on the beets is a perfect added touch to the trail mix. Read More

They're pretty good! Only two beets fit in my dehydrator and I didn't add salt, but they taste good. They're crunchy like kettle chips. I might soften the beets a little before drying so they're not so hard (braces). Great for dips though. :) Read More
