Spicy Baked Zucchini Chips

Shares

Adapted from Vittles and Bits

In this simple zucchini chips recipe, I salted the zucchini and let it drain for an hour before baking.  I figured that would help crisp things up.  Next I oiled the parchment and then oiled the zucchini rounds once they were on the pan.  I did not add any additional salt after that, as I know the zucchini chips tend to absorb quite a bit when salted beforehand.  I sprinkled on a little pepper, and then some smoked paprika.  I baked the zucchini chips for about 45 minutes.  I then had to leave the house, so I simply turned off the oven and left the chips there to crisp up.  When I came home, I had some delicious spicy baked zucchini chips to snack on!
