  • 3 large beets, assorted colors

  • ¼ cup water

  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon fleur de sel (sea salt flakes)


  1. Peel and slice beets as thinly as possible with a sharp knife or mandoline.

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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.
