FUSS-FREE MICROWAVE CHIPS

PREP TIME: 20 MINUTES | COOKING TIME: 30 MINUTES FOR ABOUT 4 BATCHES | MAKES ABOUT 2-3 CUPS If you’re looking for an easy way to get a potato-chip fix, then microwaving is the method for you. Microwave chippery is simple. Plus—a big plus—the veggies come out looking brighter than they would had they been baked or fried. So those gorgeous heirloom blue, purple, and red potatoes will hold on to more of their vibrancy. You can use this technique on all kinds of other veggies too—carrots, zucchini, beets, and of course, sweet potatoes.

Carrots, parsnips, and dill are cousins in the plant world and kissing cousins in this recipe. These pretty orange-and-yellow sticks are seasoned with lots of zesty dill seed and lacy dill weed. The recipe follows the low-and-slow method to prevent the sweet carrots from browning too quickly. If you’re impatient and don’t mind some dark chips mixed in with the light, check out the alternate cooking method. Carrots and parsnips have an affinity to rich Indian spices. Try a batch with tandoori seasoning or curry powder, or the warm spiciness of Ashley English’s Ras el Hanout seasoning on page 127.

You know that summer can’t be far away when cheerful red strawberries start piling up in grocery stores and at farmers’ markets. Before you start whipping up those shortcakes or cranking out the strawberry ice cream, pluck out the biggest specimens to make these ruby-red chips. Strawberry chips are elegant on their own and even fancier when served alongside sweetened mascarpone or sour cream for dipping. If overthe-top is your style, plant crunchy strawberry chips on top of cupcakes or tuck them into dishes of ice cream! If your oven goes lower than 200°F, consider going lower and cooking longer. Strawberry chips do exceptionally well in the dehydrator, where there’s little danger of them turning brown due to exposure to heat.
