Squash Chips & more...

So, my friend Nicole gifted me with a 4 & 1/2 foot uber squash she & her hubby grew in their garden! This veg was enormous!!! (See picture at left). I say "was" because I have put this freshness to great use this past week. 

I've made Squash cakes (See my potato pancakes- just SUB squash for potato :) ) I've also made Squash quiche (see zucchini quiche & sub squash for zucchini). And the no fail, quick bread... (see zucchini bread & sub squash for zucchini). But lo & behold, I still have... yes, you guessed it, SQUASH.  

You have seen them in the grocery store- veggie chips. They are so different & delicious & expensive at times! Make your own!!! It's easy.... So I went to town slicing thin strips with my mandoline & made these Squash Chips. They are delicious! But eat them fresh! The crunch will leave them quickly.  

Squash Chips
  • 2 Medium Summer Squash
  • Olive Oil Cooking Spray
  • Sea Salt

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Clean, peel & slice the squash very thin. I used a mandoline to make the perfect thinness but you can use a paring knife, carefully. 

Spray baking sheet with cooking spray & place single slices of the squash all along the baking surface. Spray the squash slices with the cooking spray then sprinkle the sea salt over them. Bake for 1 hour or until the slices are dry & crispy.

  2. Thank you, Lindsey! (thanks, Nicole for the Squash :) )

  3. Wow, gorgeous squash! I love your idea of making Squash chips! Crunchy veggy chips sounds simply tasty and healthy. Lish, what a cool idea. Thanks!
